The course includes:
- Case-based discussions on the most common conditions presenting to a rural district hospital in a developing country
- Appropriate triage in low income settings via a short version of the Emergency Triage Assessment and Treatment plus (ETAT+) course, rapidly gaining popularity in East Africa
- Broader issues of working in a different cultural and economic environment, for example, supplies, hospital management, attitudes and practices regarding illness and death
- Extensive pre-course reading materials.
It is taught by a combination of senior UK paediatricians with extensive overseas experience as well as paediatricians based in low income countries. Some input is also provided by paediatric trainees who have recently returned from working in a low resource setting.
The final programme will be confirmed in January 2019. The current programme is based on the agenda for CHILS 2018.
We have received some excellent feedback from delegates with 100% stating they would recommend it. They felt the course improved their understanding of the role of an overseas volunteer, and motivated them in considering their potential contribution to global child health.
