Collaborative Conversations with Families to Advance the Clinical Care of Children with Medical Complexities and Disabilities (C6) is a 10-part seminar series that builds on an international study, completed in 2020, designed to highlight key clinical research questions for the care of children with neurodisability and medical complexity.
The series is led by complex care pediatricians Dr. Eyal Cohen and Dr. Catherine Diskin from the Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) in Toronto, Canada, and Dr. Rishi Agrawal from Lurie Children's Hospital of Chicago, as well as Family Voices representatives Nora Wells, Cara Coleman, and Kate Robinson.
Each one-hour seminar will be hosted on Zoom and will include a panel of national experts, both clinical and caregiver. Seminars will begin with an overview of the topic and a conversation on shared decision making in pediatric complex care. The goal is to build a community of practice. Attendees are encouraged to ask questions, share insights, and engage with the panel.
Family caregivers, youth, and friends of children with medical complexity (CMC) are welcome to join along with health care professionals, researchers, policy makers, and anyone invested in advancing clinical care in CMC.
The C6 seminar series is funded through a grant from the Lucile Packard Foundation for Children’s Health.
