Welcome Authors!

Welcome to Paediatrics.Online, a collaborative project helping paediatricians refer their patients to safe, useful information online.

Most members of the Paediatrics.Online community are what WordPress  (which hosts this site) calls “Authors”.  This means you can create your own collection of links and resources any time you like simply by creating a blog.  If you’re new to WordPress, there’s a simple tutorial here.  Rest assured – it’s no more difficult than using a word processing program like Microsoft Word.

To join Paediatrics.Online as an author you will need to contact us with a short description of who you are and what you’d like to do on the site.  Make sure you include your email address! If we invite you to join, we’ll email you a link and some simple instructions.  It’s all free and will only take about 5 minutes to set up.


There aren’t many, but there are a few rules governing the Paediatrics.Online community.

1. Paediatrics.Online is designed to be generic, not branded.  Blogs should only be created around a particular topic (eg: autism, skin, training) or a particular geographic location (eg: NSW, Australia).  Blogs advertising a particular practice will be edited or deleted.

2. The tag is “Curated by Specialists. Created for Families.” There is an expectation that the content you link to will be safe and useful to families.  We reserve the right to edit or delete any links which we consider not to meet this standard, without discussion.

That’s it!  Thank you for your interest in joining us.

If you ever need anything, please contact the site administrator, Dr Chris Elliot.  The form sends an email directly to Chris’s inbox.
