MNCY SCN aims to improve outcomes for expectant mothers and children of all ages throughout Alberta. Drawing on the experience and expertise of its core committee members, the MNCY SCN is focused on accessing research, creating partnerships, and engaging patients and families to find new solutions that will improve patient care. They work closely with Alberta’s front-line health care providers on how to best implement these new ideas. One of the priorities of the MNCY SCN is pediatric concussion.
