WEBINAR: Winter is coming: Influenza vaccination in times of COVID-19 – Best practices from the Southern HemisphereSeasonal influenza represents a significant burden of diseases for the health care system and a risk for several population groups, including the elderly, people with underlying conditions, pregnant women and others. In a large part of the Northern Hemisphere, the COVID-19 pandemic reached its peak as the flu season subsided and spring arrived.read moreDue to COVID-19, healthcare professionals have missed out on critical opportunities to connect with both experts and peers, whilst facing a global crisis that requires collaboration and knowledge sharing like never before. This is why an independent scientific committee of leading experts* has designed an interactive 2-day programme to bring healthcare professionals together, on a virtual platform, hosted by GSK.read more
The program aims to fight under-diagnosed or late-diagnosed conditions for which treatments are available and where early detection and early treatment could make a significant difference in the condition's development, the quality of life and the survival of patients. Following a Peer2Peer educational approach, the program targets to improve everyday practice and the way child healthcare professions advise and treat the children and families they support. Pediatricians and family doctors are likely to be the first healthcare professionals to observe symptoms, and it is important to help these front-line clinicians suspect, diagnose, and refer patients.
Misdiagnosis of Metabolic Disorders results in late diagnosis and the late start of treatment, which has significant consequences on long-term outcomes. This gap usually results in confusing symptoms with other conditions, most notably; (a) trying to address symptoms directly and therefore delaying actual diagnosis and treatment, or (b) referring the patient to the wrong pediatric specialties causing further delays in the condition’s management chain.
The courses are free to attend and a certificate of attendance will be provided by the Excellence in Pediatrics Institute for those who will attend all sessions of a course. Visit the links to each course below and register to access the recorded videos of each module.
