A practical approach to serious infections in children is organized by CP Reykjavik - Conferences / Events / Incentives and will be held from Feb 06 - 08, 2020 at Hannesarholt, Reykjavik, Reykjavikurborg, Iceland. Target Audience: This course is designed to help doctors to develop their skills in this challenging area. Course Description: Infections are a common cause of paediatric morbidity and mortality and correctly diagnosing and treating serious infections in children is important. Several factors can interfere with the process of diagnosing and successfully treating ill children. These include failure to take an adequate history, inadequate observations once a child is admitted, failure to anticipate and recognise complications and inadequate safety netting by junior staff. Cognitive biases also often contribute to incorrect diagnosis and management. The course addresses these issues and provides practical approaches to avoid these pitfalls. Course Aims: The aim of this highly interactive 3-day course is to give front-line doctors, who look after children, a practical approach to recognising the unwell child, identifying red flags, considering differential diagnoses and managing a wide range of serious infections. This is achieved through small-group workshops discussing real cases, and a small number of lectures which underpin these workshops, covering clinical decision making, antibiotics, and basics of the immune system. On day 1, workshops cover the approach to the septic child, fever in the returning traveller, fever in the neonate, the child with a limp, abnormal neurology, and vaccinations. On day 2 interactive workshops include fever in the immunocompromised host, the child with swollen joints, evaluating the child with recurrent infections and the child with a secondary immunodeficiency. Day 3 allows delegates an opportunity to discuss elements of the course in more detail and to present their own cases for discussion with members of the faculty and other delegates, all amidst the natural beauty of Iceland. Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
