Pediatric Collab Preview: How to bolster the parent-child bond in post-COVID pediatrics

The NRC Health 2023 Pediatric Collaborative is truly a can’t-miss experience, with exceptional presentations that will stir innovative ideas for attendees to bring back to their larger PX and marketing teams. The collaborative’s theme this year, “Understanding On-deck,” will bring high-performing organizations together to connect directly with their “home team” of pediatrics and collaborate with and learn from their peers in an intimate and intentional setting.

The event is set for March 28–29, 2023, at Phoenix Children’s in Phoenix, Arizona.

This year’s lineup includes a host of great presentations. Here, Ryan Donohue, Strategic Advisor at NRC Health, will address how the pandemic has profoundly impacted the bond between parent and child. Donohue will give us a deeper understanding of how the parent-child relationship has changed in the face of the pandemic, along with the implications of that change for those who provide pediatric care.

“We’ll take a deep dive into a massive national study of healthcare consumers and families to illustrate how the parent-child bond has been altered and what this means for post-pandemic care delivery,” Donohue says.

As the host of the Patient No More podcast, Donohue will talk about larger themes and why we’re still exploring the long-term outcomes of COVID-19.

“Has the pandemic changed parenting forever? Will even the youngest of today’s children be irreparably changed by COVID-19? What are the greatest impacts on pediatric care?” Donohue asks. “I’ll reveal data and insights about how the parent-child relationship has changed, and what it means going forward. For healthcare systems, we’ll discuss how pediatric care delivery must shift to better serve children and their parents post-pandemic.”

Donohue acknowledges that pediatrics is a different world—and while many industry forces affect pediatrics, it has unique challenges and advantages, which should be explored on their own.

“I want to invite anyone who’s on the fence to come and see this event,” Donohue says. “It’s not your average conference; its focus is on pediatric themes. As we all emerge from the pandemic and think about the future, an event like this is well-timed and best enjoyed by attending live.”

He looks forward to seeing the presentations of other speakers, including his colleague Toya Gorley, who will kick off the event by talking about improving the family experience.
