Tips, Tricks, Technology, and Transitions of Care for Tiny Tots

A webinar organised by:
14 June 2023

Emphasis is often placed on healthcare challenges facing providers and pharmacists that care for the adult and elderly patient populations – however, children are cared for in many of the same patient care settings: hospitals, ambulatory clinics, and community pharmacies. As compared to adults, children may be at greater risk of medication errors and potential adverse drug events due to individualized weight-based dosing, differences in compounded formulations and concentrations, inability of children to communicate adverse effects, and confusion between units of measure (e.g. milligrams versus milliliters). This session will provide “need to know” information about how to care for a paediatric patient throughout the care continuum (inpatient considerations, transitions between inpatient and outpatient care, outpatient considerations, and transitions from paediatric to adult care) as well as more advanced information regarding innovative approaches and technology implementation in paediatric pharmacy.
