The NASPGHAN Toolkit provides quick and easy access to pediatric gastrointestinal resources
Disclosures: Speakers report educational grant support for Reckitt Mead Johnson Nutrition’s NASPGHAN Toolkit.
A digital toolkit created by the North American Society for Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition has been extended to a web-based format to improve resource accessibility for healthcare providers.
“Our goal is to provide the pediatric gastroenterology community with quick and easy access to useful links, publications, score calculators, algorithms and atlases to use during our training,” Alejandro Velez, MD, a second-year GI Pediatrics Fellow at Cincinnati Children’s Hospital and co-chair of the NASPGHAN Toolkit Subcommittee, Healio said in an exclusive video.
The toolkit was initially launched as a mobile app, but moved in November 2021 to an online database, which the committee hopes will be easier to improve with new resources.
“One of the exciting changes is that it’s so versatile and can be updated at any time,” Namrata Patel-Sanchez, MD, MPH, added a third-year fellow in gastrointestinal pediatrics at the University of California, San Francisco and co-chair of the NASPGHAN Toolkit Subcommittee. “We really want to emphasize that we rely on our pediatric gastroenterology community to help keep the website up to date with the idea that it is highly targeted and easy to use for fellows in a clinical emergency or with immediate consultations.
