"It's every child's right to grow up in a safe environment. And we have to prioritise this for future generations of children to thrive."
In this podcast episode, recorded in November 2021, we reflect on COP26 and what it meant for child health. We also discuss our new impact of climate change position statement, and offer advice to paediatricians on how to support this important issue.
In October 2021, our Chief Executive, Jo Revill spoke with RCPCH President, Camilla Kingdon about COVID-19 vaccinations in young people - a complex issue with much public focus. The College had sought to represent the insights of both paediatricians and young people, and emphasised the need to keep children in school.
And earlier in the autumn, Jo and Camilla met to discuss our upcoming College strategy, which, as Jo explained, was "setting guiderails for where we see the College going over this next period".
In 2019, we produced our first series of podcasts on managing sepsis, especially for our members and other child health professionals. Since late 2020 we've covered more topics, from QI experiences in multidisciplinary teams to the aspirations of the RCPCH President candidates.
