Al Jalila Children’s launches ‘PaedsX’ Programme to Encourage Thought Leadership and Innovation in Paediatric Medicine
Al Jalila Children’s, the only children’s hospital in the UAE, has launched its very own thought-leadership platform with the aim of providing education and training to encourage and promote knowledge sharing, innovation and excellence in paediatric healthcare.
As a Continuing Medical Education (CME) platform, PaedsX comprises of three main educational pillars; Symposium Series, Grand Rounds, and Nursing Education. Each of these sessions is run by teams of world-class doctors and healthcare professionals in Al Jalila Children’s with years of experience in their respective fields and have trained in some of the leading hospitals around the world, in addition to featuring world renowned paediatric doctors and specialists from around the globe.
“The main aim of PaedsX is to encourage knowledge-sharing and create a conducive environment for continued education on evidence-based medicine and practices, which is key to the improvement of healthcare practices, ultimately translating into better care for children and their families,” said Dr. Mohamed Al Awadhi, COO at Al Jalila Children’s.
“As the only children’s hospital in the UAE, we are committed to global standards in paediatric healthcare through continuous education and evaluation of our practices. Hence, Al Jalila Children’s investment in creating PaedsX will have many benefits, not only for our hospital, but also for the paeditric health realm in general,” Dr. Al Awadhi concluded.
The sessions of the three pillars under PaedsX will mostly take place at the fully equipped Al Jalila Children’s auditorium with a capacity of around 100.
