Healthy Solutions for Children:
Making the Right Choice

The 2005 conference provided a challenge to presenters and delegates - 'Have we got the right balance for healthy solutions for children?' Delegates had the opportunity to expand knowledge, exchange views and network as well as create an impetus for change and development to improve child health outcome.

AWCH volunteers were recognised for their services to children's healthcare during the Hospital Ward Grandparent Scheme Inaugural Awards. The highlight of the conference was the young people's panel which gave insight to health issues that concern them.

The conference focused on:

  • Law and ethics for child health - are the choices alway right?
  • Parenting for child and adolescent health - who is supporting the parents?
  • Schools and health - are we working together?
  • Child and adolescent health and lifestyle - is it only lipservice?
