Through the Complexity Maze
Launch conference for The CoLab, working to improve the care of children with medical complexity and to support the staff looking after them.
This conference is open to anyone working with medically complex children who wants to share practice, brainstorm new approaches and meet a network of like-minded individuals.
The morning will include a mix of short talks from colleagues around the country. They will be sharing insights into their models of service, education programmes, staff support strategies or research activities.
In the afternoon we will be running workshops to continue development of the work programme of The CoLab in four main areas:
- Models of care and evidence
- Developing a consistent approach in difficult or high profile situations
- Education and training in the management of children with medical complexity
- Support strategies
This is an opportunity to form new friendships and collaborations, so you will have plenty of time to meet new people, to talk, and to reflect.
