Nurses Boston Children’s Hospital designates this activity for 33 contact hours for nurses. Nurse should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity Overview: Global health as a field is complex, ever-changing and involves a diverse set of skills that spans across disciplines, including: clinical knowledge & skills, advocacy & communication, systems-based knowledge, teaching skills, problem-solving, critical thinking, and cultural sensitivity. Though many health professionals have strong clinical skills as applied in their home settings, they lack the clinical experience and knowledge to successfully apply those skills in a resource-limited setting. This course aims to improve the knowledge and skills of healthcare professionals engaged or planning engagement in pediatric clinical work in low or middle income countries. High-yield clinical topics and skills will be taught using an interactive curriculum of didactics, technical skill sessions, workshops, simulation, and hands-on training. Clinical Core Topics in Global Health | September 23-25, 2019 This three-day component of the course will feature a combination of didactic and case-based teaching, and hands-on skills workshops. During the morning sessions, through lecture and case discussion participants will gain evidence-based, setting-specific knowledge in the epidemiology, diagnosis, and treatment of common illnesses and tropical diseases affecting children in developing countries. During the afternoon workshops, participants will receive practical, hands-on training in clinical skills commonly used in resource-limited settings. Ultrasound Course | September 26, 27, 2019 This interactive two-day component of the course will provide the foundation for integration of ultrasound into clinical practice with a focus on use in resource limited settings. The course provides an overview of basic ultrasound physics, machine use, and a review of point-of-care ultrasound applications including (FAST, lung, vascular access and other high yield topics). The course will feature a combination of didactic teaching sessions with small-group hands-on training sessions. Case discussions and image review will provide learners with the opportunity to learn abnormal findings and their implications in clinical care. Hands-on sessions will utilize adult & pediatric models, allowing learners to develop comfort with scanning basics and recognition of normal anatomy. Objectives: • Recognize evidence-based, setting-specific knowledge in the epidemiology, diagnosis, and treatment of common illnesses and tropical diseases affecting children in developing countries • Describe practical suggestions for utilizing local resources for optimal clinical care • Understand the essential need for strong local partnerships for improving global health, and discuss how cultural and ethical differences can be bridged to maintain those relationships, while also reflecting on the need for personal safety and self care in stressful cross-cultural interactions. • Demonstrate an initial organized approach to trauma • Demonstrate the placement of pigtail catheters and surgical thoracostomy tubes • Describe the principles of pediatric vascular access and practice cannulation techniques • Review strategies to minimize skin injury and promote wound healing • Discuss indications, management & potential complications of pediatric chest tubes in low resource settings • Calculate IV drip rates without an infusion pump & prepare IV admixtures and serial dilutions safely • Understand both the clinical utility and limitations of the basic applications of point-of-care ultrasound for diseases and conditions common in resource-limited settings • Preform point-of-care ultrasound image acquisition and interpretation

Cell Therapies for Diabetes is organized by Hanson wade and will be held from Sep 25 - 26, 2019 at Revere Hotel Boston Common, Boston, Massachusetts, United States of America. Description: The Cell Therapies for Diabetes Summit will address the key challengers hindering the development of a curative therapy for diabetes to improve the lives of millions of patients worldwide. Protect Implanted Cells from a Patients’ Alloimmunity and Autoimmunity to Create a Curative Cell Therapy for Diabetes Despite decades of research, diabetes remains a public health challenge of epidemic proportions. The underlying goal in research and therapy has been the restoration of insulin function and normoglycemia. The Cell Therapies for Diabetes Summit is focused on optimizing the clinical and commercial development of these cell therapies with improved manufacturing and streamlined logistical strategies to develop curative therapy to improve the lives of millions of patients worldwide. Bringing together the pioneers of cell therapies for diabetes we will discuss how to develop assays and biomarkers in order to enhance cell characterization to predict clinical translation, and ultimately improve efficacy, providing patients with life-changing therapies. Discuss the membrane microstructure for encapsulation devices to protect implanted cells from a patient’s alloimmunity and autoimmunity. Join us, and leading experts from Novo Nordisk, Nestle, Sanofi, Kadimastem, ViaCyte and Beta O2 as we drive progress towards the future of diabetes care. Workshops Details: Workshop A - 24 September 2019 (9:00am – 12:00pm) Examining the Oxygenation of Beta Cells Description: Pancreatic islets normally have a very high vascular density, where most beta cells are in direct contact with capillaries. Although heterogeneities exist, the mean blood perfusion is ten times higher than that in the exocrine parenchyma and provides an oxygen tension of approximately 40 mmHg in the highly metabolically active islet tissue fully dependent on oxidative metabolism. Cell therapy with pancreatic islets or pluripotent stem cell derived insulin producing cells means that the tissue has to be supplied with oxygen solely by diffusion for the surroundings prior to revascularization. Attend this workshop to learn: • The importance of oxygen for beta cell function • The oxygen supply and capacity for revascularization of transplanted beta cells in different implantation sites • Oxygenation for encapsulated beta cells • Experimental techniques to measure islet vascularization, blood flow and oxygen tension Workshop B - 24 September 2019 (1:00pm – 4:00pm) Outlining the Promise of Stem Cell-Derived Insulin Producing Human Beta Cells Description: Stem cell-derived insulin-producing human beta cells are a promising cell source for diabetes cell replacement therapy. Rigorous functional and molecular characterization of stem cell-derived beta cells and their progenitor cells is critical for successful translation of this technology to the clinic. Attend this workshop to: • Learn about the underlying biology of differentiating and maturating stem cell-derived beta cells • Functional assessment of stem cell-derived beta cells • Identify current gaps in knowledge and technologies for manufacturing of stem cell-derived beta cells Time: 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
