and well-being of children and youth
The CPS is the only national organization of paediatricians in Canada. With more than 3,000 members, the CPS is uniquely positioned to speak to the health needs of Canadian children and youth. CPS spokespeople work in hospitals, universities, clinics and private practices across the country. They can address a range of issues affecting the health, development and safety of babies, children and teens.
As exposure to digital media in Canadian family life increases, so have concerns about how screen time affects children and families. A new statement from the Canadian Paediatric Society (CPS) recommends that physicians and health care providers counsel parents and caregivers of young children on how to minimize screen time and mitigate its potential negative effects.
The Canadian Paediatric Society (CPS) has announced its 2017 award winners, honouring those who care for children and youth in Canada through excellence in paediatric research, advocacy, health promotion and education.
Health professionals should ask families whether they have firearms in their home, advises the Canadian Paediatric Society (CPS) in a new position statement.
