PAEDS turns 10
PAEDS (Paediatric Active Enhanced Surveillance) is celebrating its 10th year of national hospital based active surveillance of vaccine preventable diseases. PAEDS is now led by NCIRS, having been started as a joint initiative between NCIRS and APSU in 2007.
PAEDS held a 10 Year Anniversary Showcase in Melbourne last week to illustrate the PAEDS approach to monitoring and investigating serious childhood conditions. They focus on vaccine preventable diseases, adverse events following immunisation and other select serious diseases.
This was a satellite symposium prior to the Communicable Disease Control Conference.
Special guest A/Prof Karina Top presented on the IMPACT program and 25 years of surveillance in Canada.
