Centre for Paediatric Medicine / Women´s Clinic Paediatrics 1 – Social Paediatrics

The Social Paediatrics Centre (SPZ) offers interdisciplinary diagnostics, consulting and therapy for children and adolescent persons with chronic diseases, development disorders and for children with congenital or acquired disabilities. This allows establishment of a supporting plan and further attendance and therapy.

Our patients comprise children and adolescents but we take social environment into consideration such as family, kindergarden, school etc. to provide diagnostics and treatment. We place an emphasis on enabling our patients to balance requirements and needs to reach best-possible quality of life. Thus, it is important to consider physical, psychic and social situation. 

The SPZ team consists of paediatrists and doctors for adolescent medicine, neuropaediatrists, clinical psychologists, therapists, educators, qualified social education worker and paediatric nurses. We practice in close cooperation with the neuropaediatrics, other clinics of the Olgahospital, general practitioners and external paedagogic and therapeutic institutions.
