The Regional Program for Women's and Children's Health supports events and conferences throughout the year in collaboration with Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center and Dartmouth Hitchcock Clinics departments. A list of regional programs is available through Dartmouth Hitchcock Continuing Education for Professionals. Archived conferences recordings are also available on demand.
The foundation of the Regional Program for Women’s and Children’s Health is the Transport Conference, which is held at the referring hospital to review the maternal, infant, and pediatric transports to Dartmouth Hitchcock Medical Center for tertiary care. The goal is to optimize coordinated care and review the latest treatment strategies to improve patient outcomes through enhanced provider and nursing involvement across the continuum of care.
