Canadian Pediatric Society Webinar: Child Development and Developmental Disabilities in Immigrant and Refugee Children (Jan 27)

Title: Child Development and Developmental Disabilities in Immigrant and Refugee Children: Approaches to understanding and helping families

When: January 27, 2015 (2:30 EST) 

Newcomer families may have diverse attitudes about child development and developmental disabilities such as autism. This may mean they are reluctant to seek help from health professionals if a child has a developmental delay, and they may try alternative treatment options. 
This Fireside Chat will review how health professionals can tailor their approach to meet the needs of immigrant and refugee families when they are working with both preschool and school-aged children. Presenters will discuss tools and strategies such as active questioning, observations, and referrals to community services. Presenters will also discuss how culture may play a role in how newcomer families view developmental disabilities.

CAPHC Webinar: Deaths in Hospital and the Nova Scotia Medical Examiner Service

When: January 23, 2015 (11-12 EST)

The IWK Health Centre heard from patients and families how difficult it was for them when their child’s death became a Medical Examiners (ME) Case. The IWK worked for over a year with the ME and a family who had this experience to ‘lean the process’ and try to get it ‘right’ for other families. The work that has been done to create and clearly articulate this process to health care providers could be easily transferred to any healthcare setting in any province.

The presentation introduces the Flow Chart created to illustrate the process for Medical Examiner Cases originating from the IWK Health Centre. The presentation also covers the case flow and decision making process of the Nova Scotia Medical Examiner Service, in order to provide context for the steps in the Flow Chart.     

Participants will learn: 

  • The steps in the process for a Medical Examiner Case originating as an in-hospital death in Nova Scotia; 
  • Medical Examiner responsibilities, jurisdiction and authority as directed by provincial (Nova Scotia) legislation; 
  • what types of deaths are legally required to be reported to the Nova Scotia Medical Examiner Service per provincial legislation; 
  • How the flow chart/process/decision making model may be extrapolated to other provinces or territories.
