COVID-19 Resources for Pediatric Healthcare Leaders and Clinicians

Understanding Risks, Keeping Children Healthy, Treating COVID-19 Patients, and Managing Patient Surge

Pediatric healthcare providers face stunning array of challenges as they work to protect their patients from COVID-19 and treat children and adolescents who have been infected with the virus. Many children have returned to the classroom across the country, which could result in an increase in pediatric COVID-19 cases, and seasonal influenza may further complicate care for pediatric COVID-19 patients.

Healthcare leaders and clinicians can take action to protect their patients by planning for a potential surge in pediatric COVID-19 cases, taking steps to prevent or mitigate staffing shortages, learning about trends in your area, and finding out about prevention and treatment options. Use the resources below to help your facility stay up-to-date on the latest information about the pandemic and plan to protect pediatric patient health.
