Common Conditions & Emergencies in Pediatrics

  • November 14 2020 1:25 PM - 2:25 PM

Historically, the vast majority of physicians who provide pediatric care on the mission field and other resource poor settings are not pediatricians. They are brave and innovative physicians who made the determination to make a difference, drawing on available resources. Every physician on the mission field wants to be equipped to deliver quality care that is Christ-centered, patient-focused, evidence based, and culturally sensitive. Recognizing that the leading causes of death in children worldwide are mostly preventable through basic public health interventions, the mission-minded physician is presented with the perfect intersection between clinical medicine and public health practice. In this session your confidence in treating pediatric illnesses and emergencies will be enhanced as you gain a better understanding of evidence-based protocols, using clinical cases drawn from Dr Ojuola’s many years of experience providing pediatric care in various resource-poor settings.
