Website van de Belgische vereniging voor kindergeneeskunde (Cliquez sur FR en bas de la page pour le Fran├žais)

De website van de Belgische Vereniging voor Kindergeneeskunde is bedoeld om nuttige informatie te verstrekken aan iedereen die begaan is met de gezondheid van onze kinderen. Deze informatie en de aangeboden acties voor de volksgezondheid situeren zich rond 5 hoofdthema's die de belangrijkste missies van de BVK vormen naar kinderen en hun familie toe: voeding, hydratatie, preventie van infecties en besmettingen, hygiëne en vanzelfsprekend de stimulatie en psychomotorische ontwikkeling van kinderen.

Deze informatie wordt mogelijk gemaakt dankzij communicatiekanalen, ontwikkeld met de steun van onze partners: deze internetsite evenals een netwerk van meer dan 600 displays met brochures over onderwerpen in verband met de volksgezondheid. U kunt deze displays vinden in de wachtzaal van kinderartsen en op de afdelingen voor kindergeneeskunde.

Van de verschillende missies van de Belgische Vereniging voor Kindergeneeskunde is het hoofddoel van deze acties de gezondheid en het welzijn van kinderen te bevorderen. Aarzel niet om uw opmerkingen of suggesties mee te delen.

Urgent message from BVK/SBP: cancellation annual congress

Dear Colleagues,

The SARS-CoV2 virus continues to dominate our society.
Precautionary measures need to be implemented. Planned activities have to be postponed and even cancelled.
Indeed, we have to announce you the sad news that the 48th annual BVK/SBP congress, postponed from March to October 2020 is definitively cancelled. 2020 registrations fees will automatically be transferred to the 2021 congress. Reimbursement can also be requested if needed. Arrangements have already been started to prepare the March 2021 meeting, organized by the pediatric team of UGent, in close collaboration with the colleagues and scientific committee of ULB. They have chosen a very actual and appropriate title: “The Changing Face of Pediatrics”.

We are looking forward meeting you in person, face-to-face, hopefully in March 2021

Many thanks for your understanding.

Kind regards

Marc Raes, president BVK/SBP
Pierre Smeesters, congress president 2020
Sabine Van Daele, congress president 2021


Paul Casaer (1940 – 2020) – In Memoriam

 

 

It is with great sadness that the we share the passing of emeritus professor Paul Casaer on July 30th 2020.

In 1975 Paul Casaer was the pioneer of pediatric neurology in Flanders. He was the founding director of the pediatric neurology department in Leuven, which he developed into a large international program with subspecialty care programs. Professor Casaer was a gifted clinician, a talented teacher and educator for students and residents/fellows, and a successful clinical researcher. Paul Casaer was the initiator and co-founder of the Pediatric Rehabilitation Centre Pulderbos. He was co-founder (1976) and the first president of the Belgian Society of Pediatric Neurology (BSPN), the first president of the European Society of Pediatric Neurology (ESPN), and secretary-general and president of the International Child Neurology Association (ICNA). Along with professor Victor Dubowitz he was co-founding editor-in-chief of the European Journal of Pediatric Neurology.

In addition to his career and achievements in the pediatric neurology field, Paul Casaer greatly contributed to the advancement of pediatrics. He was a pediatrician with heart and soul. Between 1995 and 2005 he was the chairman of the university children’s hospital in Leuven. He contributed to the Belgian Society of Pediatrics as executive board member, and he was co-founder and president of the Belgische Academie voor Kindergeneeskunde.

Paul Casaer will be deeply missed. We will remember him, with great respect and gratitude, as an exceptional and passionate clinician, mentor and teacher, leader, a wonderful colleague, a warm personality, a good friend.

We extend our sincerest condolences to his family and friends, and the many colleagues around the world who had the privilege of being trained by him and of working with him.
