EDUCATION PROGRAM UPDATE: The Spot the Early Signs Program aims to fight under-diagnosed or late-diagnosed conditions where early detection could make a significant difference in the condition's development, the quality of life and the survival of patients.
Excellence in Paediatrics (EIP) believes that working directly with paediatricians is the only way to improve the identification, treatment and referral rates of children with a wide range of disorders and conditions.
By providing education and resources to EIP’s members, not only can they prepare themselves to spot the signs but crucially share materials (eLearnings, lectures, articles and webinars) with their own networks, both online and face-to-face
The Program is already live and initially targeted at Spotting the Signs of Metabolic Disorders, but will soon be expanded to include more conditions.
For each thematic area the Program will have:
An information portal which simultaneously serves as (1) online course to train frontline pediatricians on the specific topic (2) point of reference for the condition (3) builds a network of HCPs who are trained to organise Peer-2-Peer education activities in their facilities. Education materials to train frontline pediatricians which includes: (1) short animated videos with practical information on how to spot the early signs - shared through social media and professional networks to increase awareness (2) recorded training webinars, and (3) recorded training lectures and conference sessions.
Online education activities in the form of webinars targeting: (1) to train the volunteers, and (2) to train any frontline pediatrician who is interested Face to face education activities which includes: (1) EIP conference sessions, and (2) Briefing and lectures organised by the network volunteers in their facilities based on the materials and presentations template.
