Part 2 of our webinar series with the Canadian Association of Pediatric Health Centres (CAPHC) is now available online:
This webinar took place on May 21st, 2014 and focused on how we are using the needs assessment results to help general emergency departments across Canada better access, adapt and implement new knowledge in pediatric emerergency care. The clinical conditions and resources we are focusing on will be discussed as well as lessons learned from other implementation projects.
Dr. Mona Jabbour - a Pediatric Emergentologist at the Children’s Hospital of Eastern Ontario (CHEO) and Associate Professor in the Department of Pediatrics, with cross appointments to the Department of Emergency Medicine and the Faculty of Education at the University of Ottawa. Mona has extensive experience in the development and use of clinical pathways for various clinical problems in the Emergency Department. Her research interests are in the field of knowledge translation and implementation strategies to get pathways into practice. She has led an ED Outreach initiative to share CHEO clinical pathways and other best practice tools with emergency departments in eastern Ontario. She currently chairs the development and implementation of provincial ED-based clinical pathways that address pediatric and adult asthma, as well as child and youth mental health concerns.
Dr. David Johnson - a pediatric emergency physician, medical toxicologist, a Professor of Pediatrics and Physiology and Pharmacology, and a Theme Lead, Alberta Children’s Hospital Research Institute at the University of Calgary, Faculty of Medicine. David’s primary research interests focus on the management of common respiratory illnesses (croup, bronchiolitis, and asthma), and has published several large multi-centre randomized controlled trials assessing the benefit of corticosteroids for both croup and bronchiolitis in the New England Journal of Medicine. More recently, he has become interested in determining how best to translate knowledge into practice, and has completed several large multi-centre studies assessing different strategies for implementing clinical practice guidelines and clinical pathways in Alberta.
