It was found that 95% of the participants agreed that the presentations related to their professional needs and 98% that it increased their knowledge. In addition, 81% evaluated the presentations as some of the best they have attended and 93% agreed that the information would translate into professional practice and enhance patient care. Comments were positive and correlated with the survey data. Participants recommended several ways to improve Peds PLACE.
