Parent Education in Hong Kong and Implications for Paediatricians

SKM Tsang


Abstract

Paediatricians are one of parents' most often consulted and best-trusted professionals. Close connections with parents make paediatricians vital in promoting and delivering parent education. This paper presents reflections on the nature and scope of parent education, and discusses the current state and future directions of parent education in Hong Kong. It is recognised that paediatricians in Hong Kong have been active in parent education on macro, messo, and micro levels. In view of rapidly changing social contexts, the need for paediatricians to be even better equipped with attitudes, knowledge and skills to render holistic care to children and families, especially the vulnerable and hard-to-engage ones, are discussed.
