Pediatric Resource Bundles: Clinical Support Tools and Practice Support Documents

There has been an increased demand for pediatric care education resources at health care sites across the province. Child Health BC has partnered with BC Children’s Hospital to create pediatric Resource Bundles to support the provision of safe and effective care for children in BC. The bundles consist of a robust selection of Learning Resources, Clinical Support Tools, and Practice Support Documents to assist healthcare providers in managing the care of pediatric patients. Please note, these bundles are for reference and are not meant to replace your local & regional policies, procedures and guidelines for care.  

The Pediatric Resource Bundles are meant to compliment the following e-Learning modules:
