For Clinicians

Supporting doctors to get to know more about Kawasaki Disease is a very important focus for us.

On this page you’ll find CPD resources, accredited mini courses, information films, research papers , resources you can share with your patients – and much more.

We are also working to establish partnerships with children’s hospitals – where we keep teams of doctors updated with the latest information about Kawasaki Disease – as we build a community of doctors through the U.K. who really get to know this sinister disease – and want to protect tiny hearts. Contact us if you’d like to know more.

If there’s information you’d like, and you can’t find on this page, please let us know and we’ll do what we can to get you everything you need.

Have you got a spare 15 minutes in your day..? Why not refresh your knowledge in an increasingly common disease – take our Kawasaki Disease clinical quiz! Our clinical quiz  has been developed from our “Little Book of Kawasaki Disease” – a book compiled with the guidance of doctors who are expert in Kawasaki Disease.  With more doctors having up-to-date knowledge about this increasingly common disease, we hope to improve the speed of diagnosis and treatment for all children affected by Kawasaki Disease, to reduce their risk of lifelong heart disease. Many of the questions are taken from our film Acute Kawasaki Disease Management – an expert-led discussion, endorsed by the RCPCH Education and Learning Committee and can be accessed via a link after completing the quiz.
