PAEDS is a network of clinicians and public health researchers in six Australian tertiary paediatric hospitals which also works with several associate investigators, collaborators and contributors. PAEDS is funded by the Australian Government Department of Health with contributions from the state health departments of New South Wales, Victoria, South Australia, Western Australia, Queensland and the Northern Territory. Funding from NHMRC grants also supplements certain surveillance activities. PAEDS is also under the oversight of the PAEDS Reference Group, composed of representatives from all participating Departments of Health and independent expert groups.
The conditions included in PAEDS are acute flaccid paralysis, intussusception, varicella and herpes zoster, pertussis, febrile seizures and acute childhood encephalitis.
Join us as we take you on a journey to discover our PAEDS approach to monitoring and investigating serious childhood conditions.
We focus on vaccine preventable diseases, adverse events following immunisation and other select serious diseases.
Special guest A/Prof. Karina Top will be presenting on the IMPACT program and 25 years of surveillance in Canada.
