New Brunswick Social Pediatrics
An interprofessional, community-based approach to care for children and their families in New Brunswick.
The Community Social Pediatrics model of care was developed by Quebec pediatrician, Dr. Gilles Julien, who recognized that children living in difficult conditions often lack access to important healthcare services. To fill this gap in healthcare delivery, Dr. Julien established a community-based model with the goal of providing care to vulnerable and at-risk children. Community Social Pediatrics focuses on the social determinants of health and the voice of the child as per the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child.
