The CPD accredited portion of the hub aims to develop, organise and maintain content, online training materials and packages, and face to face training materials and packages for common acute and long-term paediatric conditions and aspects of maternal and child public health.  Working closely with the Provincial Government of the Western Cape we facilitate skills transfer in paediatric conditions and child public health through education and training in key knowledge and skills for medical officers and IMCI nurses in community clinics, ward-based doctors and nurses, family physicians, facility and district managers.  The hubs vision is to introduce sustainable improvements to service provision at all levels of the health service in the province and reduce the impact of acute diseases and long-term health conditions (LTHCs) on children.
