Provincial Pediatric Virtual Support Pathways
Three pediatric, virtual support pathways have extended their services to meet changing needs and help curb the ongoing pressures at B.C hospitals.
The Provincial Pediatric Virtual Support Pathways document highlights virtual support tools available to B.C. doctors, residents, nurses, midwives, nurse practitioners and other pediatric providers across the province.
Pediatric Practice Support Learning Resources, Clinical support tools and Documents.
In response to the increased demand for pediatric care being experienced by health care sites across the province, Child Health BC has partnered with BC Children’s Hospital to create pediatric bundles to support the safe and effective care of children in BC. We have compiled a robust selection of existing Learning Resources, Clinical Support Tools, and Practice Support Documents to support healthcare providers in managing the care of pediatric patients. While the resources are available, they are not meant to be a replacement for your local & regional policies, procedures and guidelines for care.
These pediatric bundles are meant to complement the following online learning modules:
