Educational Support Opportunities

Medical education plays an important role in the quality of healthcare delivered across the globe. Physicians, researchers, scientists and other healthcare professionals are increasingly challenged to maintain their knowledge, skills and abilities within their respective professions. By providing an educational grant in support of the educational opportunities below, you will make a vital contribution to these efforts and support better patient outcomes.

All educational grants are managed in compliance with relevant CME accreditation criteria and industry compliance codes. In order to ensure independence of all CME accredited elements, companies providing grants may not influence the topic, speaker selection, or any other aspect of the content or presentation. No promotional, commercial, or advertising materials may be included in the following opportunities. All support will be disclosed to participants.

All grants are managed in compliance with relevant accreditation and industry compliance criteria.

It is critical that healthcare providers working with pediatric infectious disease patients are able to access high quality, accredited continuing medical education. Participation grants are available to healthcare providers who would otherwise not be able to take part due to financial and resource barriers, and any amount of support is greatly appreciated. Each grant will cover congress registration. No funds will be transferred to any individuals; instead, access to the virtual Congress platform will be given by Kenes Group.

Eligible healthcare providers are encouraged to apply, and awards will be selected and allocated through a structured, competitive process set out by the WSPID Board.

WSPID invites you to consider supporting the establishment and development of the WSPID Online Education Portal with an educational grant. This Portal will be a interactive, engaging and accessible online platform that is free to use for all healthcare providers around the world thanks to support from industry. It will contain high quality modules of needs-based accredited continuing medical education, blended learning programs linked to sessions at the WSPID congresses, and other materials and resources developed by pediatric infectious disease experts. With the Portal, WSPID aims to deliver the highest quality education to healthcare providers in low- and middle-income countries in particular.

Funding support for the development of a blended learning program. In order to improve physician competencies and ultimately improve patient care, we are offering blended learning opportunities.
Training and educational activities can be blended in many ways. Blended learning courses have proven to be a popular choice for learners as it allows learners to take advantage of much of the flexibility and convenience of an online course while retaining the benefits of a Congress experience.
A blended learning program includes:
  • Online pre/post-test and/or online pre-/post e-learning course/ case-study linked to a Symposium/Educational Session at WSPID 2022 Congress.
  • Support will be disclosed in the Industry Support section of the Congress website.
  • Support will be acknowledged within the online learning activity.
