From Practice to Policy – Keeping What Worked: Lessons learned from COVID-19 pediatric immunizations

From H1N1 and SARS we learned not to ignore lessons learned! Let’s not repeat the mistakes of the past.

This Pop-Up will help us capture and imbed our Covid-19 lessons learned into organizational policies, processes, and practices along the continuum of disciplines that feed into the delivery of immunization services for children and youth. Together we can ensure the systemic knowledge, innovation and collaborations created during the COVID-19 pandemic are recorded, incorporated into practice, and nurtured to improve our practices and policies to protect against future destabilizing events.

Join us for a day-long mini-conference with leading health experts
