Children's Health is organized by Remote Care Education.

The majority of international aid work is focused on pediatric patients, but unless you are a Pediatrician or FP you likely feel a bit nervous treating tiny humans in resource limited settings.  Before you travel to an unfamiliar health landscape and practice medicine in a culture you may not know, with diseases you might not recognize, and with tools you've never used before, it's a good idea to do some review and prepare for the kids that will surely be the lion's share of your mission’s patient demographic. This bundle course covers all the main tools and considerations you'll want to have in your black bag for seeing kids aged 0-18.

Included Lectures:
Isobel Atkinson:
Births in Remote Rural Settings:
Learn what to do when one of your patients goes into labor, especially in remote settings or otherwise without access to advanced services. Learn tips to make sensitive prenatal consults a positive experience for you and your patients and their families. Review normal progression of labor and common birth emergencies, as well as neonatal care needs and resuscitation. Participants should gain increased confidence approaching maternal health consults in resource-limited settings, and improve maternal outcomes in medical aid settings.

Dr. Benjamin LaBrot:
Pediatrics in Developing Regions I: Neonates and Infants:
Review the common medical mission issues that arise early in life and preventive and acute approaches to diagnoses and treatments. Also, learn how to promote successful breastfeeding and management of breastfeeding issues. Participants should be more motivated to highlight neonatal and infant health in medical aid due to greater physician appreciation of neonatal and infant health as high-value intervention targets in resource-limited settings. Participants should also develop improved breastfeeding promotion ability both in and out of mission settings.

Dr. Benjamin LaBrot:
Pediatrics in Developing Regions II: Children and Adolescents:
Review of general child and teen health issues in the developing world, and approach to common specific conditions, including problems of growth and development, abuse and mental health, and infectious conditions. Participants will gain improved confidence in resource-limited pediatric primary care consults, and improve outcomes in medical aid deployments.

Dr. Ben LaBrot:
Review of the principles of nutrition in health care applications, especially as applied to resource-limited settings and the non-medical management of the chronic disease. Includes a review of common malnutrition conditions encountered in mission settings and the barriers to nutrition in developing regions. Participants gain competence in assessing acute and chronic nutritional status in resource-limited populations, recognizing and managing nutritional deficiencies, and utilizing recourse-limited nutritional knowledge to improve patient outcomes.

Dr. Benjamin LaBrot:
Diarrhea Management:
This ubiquitous medical mission issue receives special attention. Common causes are reviewed, with an emphasis on pattern recognition and clinical diagnosis, common causes, dehydration, public health, and primary prevention. Management strategies in remote settings are included, as well as regional barriers and strategies for larger-scale interventions. Participants should gain confidence and competence in recognizing and managing diarrheal presentations in remote or resource-limited settings.
