Our mission is to improve child health and healthcare globally by empowering all providers who care for children with the latest practical skills, expert advice and peer-led guidance. Excellence in Pediatrics Institute strives to build a global community that nurtures and supports their continuing education requirements and their ever-changing needs.
The annual Excellence in Pediatrics Conference (EIP) is the Institute's annual flagship event that updates its delegates of the latest scientific developments and more importantly helps them to improve the standard of care they deliver on the Monday morning after the meeting. The EIP Faculty presents cutting-edge research and its specific use for pediatric practice - providing attendees with unparalleled access to frontline research, but critically with a professional translation into clinical practice. The Excellence in Pediatrics Conference is a truly collaborative event designed for the benefit of frontline pediatric HCPs from across Europe and around the world.
EIP2020 Goes Fully Virtual this December
With COVID infections once again on the rise across Europe, and around the world, EIP has taken the difficult but necessary decision to make the 12th Excellence in Pediatrics an entirely virtual meeting this year. Unfortunately, with infections again increasing and short notice quarantines being put in place, it is now clear that it is still too early to host EIP2020 as a live event.
EIP is fully prepared to deliver online the unique interactive experience we offer each year at our physical meeting. We are determined that none of our international colleagues will miss out on any of the conference sessions, nor the opportunity to present his or her work to colleagues from all over the world.
We hope you understand and support this move and look forward to welcoming you
to the 12th EIP Conference online from Thursday 3rd to Saturday 5th December 2020
Connecting Pediatricians to improve child health globally
The Excellence in Pediatrics Community is a collaborative global network allowing members to engage in peer-to-peer learning through our online communication platform, enabling members to connect and work with their colleagues around the world. Our members are the core of EIP, they decide on the strategy, the priorities, and the activities of the Institute. The Excellence in Pediatrics Community is open for individual healthcare professionals from all over the world to become members and is free to join and participate in. If you are not already a member join today to work with your colleagues to improve child health globally.
Early diagnosis can make a difference
The Spot the Early Signs Education Program aims to fight under-diagnosed or late-diagnosed conditions for which treatments are available and where early detection and early treatment could make a significant difference in the condition's development, the quality of life and the survival of patients. Following a Peer2Peer educational approach, the program targets to improve everyday practice and the way child healthcare professions advise and treat the children and families they support. Pediatricians and family doctors are likely to be the first healthcare professionals to observe symptoms, and it is important to help these front-line clinicians suspect, diagnose, and refer patients.
Stay updated with the latest evidence and best practice advice
and improve your everyday practice
The annual conference goes a long way in achieving EIP’s mission to share the latest developments and practical advice in pediatrics. But EIP want to build on the face-to-face education at the annual meeting by taking the learning outside the halls and arranging a series of free-to-view webinars, hosted and promoted every month throughout the year. EIP's target is to increase awareness and knowledge among frontline child healthcare professionals through Peer-to-Peer education and sharing essential information. Webinars are recorded and made available to the 45,000 healthcare professionals connected to EIP, and many thousands more around the world.
Over the past years, EIP has developed extensive online educational content by recording sessions of the annual conference delivered by leading Key Opinion Leaders in Pediatrics. Our Recorded Sessions Library allows you to update your skills and knowledge anywhere and at any time.
Working Together to Increase Vaccination Rates Across Europe
Excellence in Pediatrics Policy Groups aim to facilitate and support changes that through collaboration will improve child health globally. The Group's goal is to increase vaccination rates across Europe and to advocate universal immunity against all vaccines preventable diseases for all age groups. The Group discusses the latest policy changes across all regions, the latest surveillance data, the strategies to overcome vaccine hesitancy and the coordination of actions to take between the various participating organisations. By bringing together the key organisations, opinion leaders, associations, and policymakers we plan out what needs to change and implement activities that support the desired change.
