Do you care about the future of child health?
Do you want to be the change you want to see in the world?
Do you want to learn more about building bridges, strength and culture in child health?
Celebrate, inspire and unite at the UK's largest Child Health Festival of 2020!

Forget a traditional conference, this exciting event is an educational day with a unique festive vibe. This year, our focus is on three key themes: bridges, strength and culture, and tackling the current challenges in child health as one collective force.

Why should you attend the Child Health Festival?
  • Celebrate and share examples of best practice from those changing the way child health is practiced
  • Unite with members of the multidisciplinary team, other professionals and service-users to create a positive vision for the future of child health
  • Prioritise the importance of wellbeing and self-care for professionals as well as for patients, and demonstrate how this can be done
  • Gain insights from outside traditional curricula, including perspectives from the social sciences, humanities and service-users
  • Join professionals from various backgrounds with the skills and knowledge to be inspired and empowered to become a part of change in child health and feel "part of something way bigger"

**CALL FOR POSTERS**

Child Health Promise

Child Health Promise is a new initiative in collaboration with the RSM that enables people to share good ideas and quality improvement projects in child health. The aim is to reduce workload and improve child health simultaneously!

It is an easy way to promote your work, get others involved and share good ideas. It’s a very simple way to have your own web page for a project without having to create a website.

The best projects will be selected as either poster or oral presentations at the meeting. Please add your project at www.childhealthpromise.org.

Submission deadline: Saturday 2 May 2020
