The Annual Excellence in Pediatrics Conference (EIP) is the Institute's annual flagship event that updates its delegates of the latest scientific developments and more importantly helps them to improve the standard of care they deliver on the Monday morning after the meeting. The EIP Faculty presents cutting-edge research and its specific use for pediatric practice - providing attendees with unparalleled access to frontline research, but critically with a professional translation into clinical practice. The Excellence in Pediatrics Conference is a truly collaborative event designed for the benefit of frontline child healthcare professionals from across Europe and around the world. The scientific program can be viewed as a series of parallel speciality conferences that cover the very latest hot topics and developments across specialities of pediatrics.

Stay updated with the latest evidence and best practice advice
and improve your everyday practice
The annual conference goes a long way in achieving EIP’s mission to share the latest developments and practical advice in pediatrics. But EIP want to build on the face-to-face education at the annual meeting by taking the learning outside the halls and arranging a series of free-to-view webinars, hosted and promoted every month throughout the year. EIP's target is to increase awareness and knowledge among frontline child healthcare professionals through Peer-to-Peer education and sharing essential information. Webinars are recorded and made available to the 45,000 healthcare professionals connected to EIP, and many thousands more around the world.
Over the past years, EIP has developed extensive online educational content by recording sessions of the annual conference delivered by leading Key Opinion Leaders in Pediatrics. Our Recorded Sessions Library allows you to update your skills and knowledge anywhere and at any time.

Vaccines Together is an initiative and online collaboration hub run by EIP, targeting to increase vaccination coverage rates across Europe, and across all stages of life, by facilitating collaboration, best practices exchange, ideas and educational resources sharing among organisations, associations, and institutions involved in promoting vaccinations.
Vaccines Together's Expert Working Groups are tasked with identifying and supporting targeted interventions and actions to increase vaccination rates in a particular disease field or policy area by advocating universal immunity against all vaccines preventable diseases for all age groups. Members discuss and debate the latest policy changes across all regions, the latest surveillance data, the strategies to overcome vaccine hesitancy and then coordinate the recommended actions to take between the various participating organisations.

LifeCourse Vaccinations are the basis of health systems resilience and preparedness
In the context of the COVID-19 Pandemic increasing the health system's resilience and the vaccines preparedness approach will be a theme running through all 5 Working Group Meetings for the 5th Lifecourse Immunisation Focus Group. The Working Groups, both in the run-up to December and at the Meetings, will explore how although vaccinations might become a lesser priority due to shifts in budget priorities targeting to increase healthcare systems resilience and preparedness after COVID-19, they are in fact the key to both resilience and preparedness in the long term. Also, any postponement or delay in essential vaccinations will cause major disruptions increasing the danger of disease outbreaks and now more than ever LifeCourse vaccination must be pursued at the cornerstone of health system resilience.
Early diagnosis can make a difference
The program aims to fight under-diagnosed or late-diagnosed conditions for which treatments are available and where early detection and early treatment could make a significant difference in the condition's development, the quality of life and the survival of patients. Following a Peer2Peer educational approach, the program targets to improve everyday practise and the way child healthcare professions advise and treat the children and families they support. Pediatricians and family doctors are likely to be the first healthcare professionals to observe symptoms, and it is important to help these front-line clinicians suspect, diagnose, and refer patients.
