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.

Colleagues talking and discussing

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.

The ability to attend all conferences, or even all session at a given conference, is impossible for the busy medical professional. Webcasting provides a means of sharing knowledge and learning opportunities beyond the dates of the actual event and thus serves a vital educational need. Materials are saved locally, but at the same time, can be distributed over the web to viewers around the world via a robust cloud server. Viewers can access the broadcasts using PCs, tablets, or smartphones live (as streamed video) or later, as on-demand webcasts.

Kenes offers two types of webcasting options:*

  • Video includes a video screen of the speaker during the session, PowerPoint slides (in sync with the speaker), and audio.
  • Digital Imaging includes PowerPoint slides with audio.
  • Support will be recognized on the home screen with ˝Supported by… ˝ and a company logo only
  • Support will be acknowledged in the Industry Support section, on the event website and virtual platform.

*Webcasted sessions to be designated by WSPID. Supporters will have no influence on content. WSPID retains the copyright of all of the enduring materials in all media formats arising from the main meeting, including  the use and distribution rights for webcasting of all conference accredited programing.

Networking

WSPID invites you to consider supporting the establishment and development of the WSPID Online Education Portal with an educational grant.

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.
