Update Information on Clinical Practice

Our College has collaborated with all local paediatric subspecialty societies to give colleagues updated information in our local clinical practice. Our aim is to keep members alerted of the changes in clinical management. These update information will be periodically emailed to all our College members with contact email addresses and archived in this section of our College website. We hope that members would find them interesting and helpful to their clinical practice. We would also like to sincerely thank all subspecialty society presidents and their councils for their kind support in providing such service to our members.
