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.
Health professionals should ask families whether they have firearms in their home, advises the Canadian Paediatric Society (CPS) in a new position statement.
When families are facing the birth of an extremely preterm infant, they will likely have many complex and sometimes difficult decisions to make. A new statement from the Canadian Paediatric Society (CPS) recommends a shared decision-making approach, involving a number of specialized health professionals and the expectant parents, to help families develop a plan that is in the best interests of their infant and aligned with their values and preferences.
The Canadian Paediatric Society strongly believes that all people deserve respect—regardless of culture, faith, identity or citizenship. We believe in an inclusive, humanitarian refugee and immigration policy that supports our identity as a strong, cohesive, pluralist nation.
