Overview

Policy

The Sri Lanka College of Paediatricians (SLCP) advocates health policy refinements to improve the quality of care and quality of life provided to children of Sri Lanka.

Standards

The College is committed to developing optimal standards and implementing them. When the public and health professionals need more information on issues related to child health we provide guidance through conferences and statements.

Publications

Our main focus is on the Sri Lanka Journal of Child Health. It is a quarterly published, peer-reviewed, indexed, free full-text access enabled publication. It is published on a CC-By Creative Common license.

Media Activities

We communicate our activities and fearlessly address any concerns through the media in a timely manner to achieve our objectives. Over the years we have developed good and mutually beneficial relationships with all forms of media. These efforts have always been impartial and transparent.

Policy

The SLCP not only advocates health policy refinements to improve the quality of care and quality of life provided to children in Sri Lanka but also emphasizes the rigorous implementation of safety standards. Health policies should be evidence-based, patient-centered and promote team approaches. We achieve this through developing our strategic policies and by engaging policy makers in the government and other stakeholders.

Our current policy activities focus on

Improving newborn care

Promotion of sub-speciality training

Establishing the discipline of adolescent medicine

Promotion of community paediatrics

Raising awareness on a myriad of issues related to child protection

Establishing databases

Developing interfaces for interaction with the public and professionals through the worldwide web

Standards

SLCP is committed to developing standards and implementing it. When the public and health professionals need more information on issues related to child health we provide guidance through conferences and statements.

We prepared guidelines a few years ago collaboration with Ministry of Health Sri Lanka. We have formulated new committees to update them.

We have prepared Standard Treatment Protocols (STPs) and once the sub-specialists, experts and paediatricians with a special interest in recognised specific fields agree with the contents, we will publish them.
