An H1N1 Update from the Pediatric Chairs of Canada
Beginning on October 30th, the Pediatric Chairs of Canada (PCC) began issuing regular short surveys to the Chairs/Chiefs of Departments of Pediatrics in Canada. The purpose of these surveys are threefold:
- To determine whether most paediatric academic health science centres (PAHSCs) have seen a major increase in Emergency Department (ED) attendance associated with the H1N1 pandemic;
- To establish policies and procedures with respect to Tamiflu prophylaxis and treatment of health care professionals in these institutions; and
- To document staffing responses of the PAHSCs to the changes in ED volumes.

PCC intends to update this survey on a weekly (or more frequent) basis in order to share experiences and encourage best practice across the country. We hope you find this helpful. Please feel free to disseminate these updates throughout your respective healthcare organizations.
