Resident Education

Global Child Health: A training program that provides residents with foundational knowledge around global child health issues. The curriculum is made for educators and consists of four one-hour interactive modules that have been designed to be taught as an educational series or standalone pieces, easily integrated into existing residency curricula. The modules focus on: Global Child Mortality; Undernutrition; Fever in the Returned Child Traveller; Children and Youth New to Canada. The complete educational package includes the Trainer Manual and a DVD with PowerPoint presentations and additional reference documents such as resident handouts, multiple choice questions, structured clinical exam cases, and interactive activities and videos.

Healthy Active Living (members only):  Developed and reviewed by a team of experts to help medical trainees, health care providers and public health professionals promote physical activity, sleep hygiene, nutrition and other healthy choices with families they see every day. Four slide decks focus on the distinct needs of different age groups:

The modules are evidence-based and reflect Canadian guidelines for physical activity and sedentary behavioursreleased in 2012. This curriculum was designed with paediatric and family medicine residents in mind, but each learning module can be downloaded and shared at no cost in virtually any care setting. The modules can also be used for self-directed learning. Note: You must be a CPS member to access these modules.

Indigenous child and youth health: Guidelines and consideration for paediatric residents: Launched in May 2011, this training module was delivered in academic centres across Canada by CPS members with experience and expertise in caring for First Nations, Inuit and Métis children and youth. The module is currently being updated and will be available in 2018. For more information, contact info@cps.ca.
