Background Information

Pediatric Eating And Swallowing (PEAS) is a quality improvement initiative to standardize services and improve care for children with pediatric feeding disorder in Alberta. As many of you know, AHS has invested time and resources to PEAS and the project is in final stages and wrapping up in June. PEAS will move over to operations to provide ongoing support for children and families with pediatric feeding disorder through Community of Practice (CoP) leadership and maintenance of the PEAS clinical pathway resources.

Expression of Interest to facilitate the PEAS Community of Practice

We encourage individuals who have eating, feeding, and/or swallowing (EFS) practice experience, and a desire to ensure continuous improvement, person-centered collaborative practice, and the opportunity to further develop leadership skills to submit an expression of interest to facilitate the PEAS CoP.

  • PEAS will appoint a representative from each discipline to form a PEAS CoP Facilitators Committee (eg: Speech-Language Pathologist, Occupational Therapist, Registered Dietitian, Registered Nurse, Physician, Lactation Consultant, Psychologist, Psychiatrist)
