Paediatric ETAT+ training 2019

20.-22.09.2019 in Hamburg, Germany

Overview

  • Target group: Doctors and nursing staff with work experience, who are preparing for a placement abroad
  • Course language: English
  • Organizers: working group ETAT of GTP
  • Venue: Kinder-UKE Hamburg
  • Fees: Doctors 300€, Nursing staff 150€
  • Course leaflet for download (updated version coming soon)
  • Registration

The concept ETAT

ETAT+ (Emergency Triage Assessment and Treatment) is a comprehensive and proven intervention developed specifically for implementation in first-level facility-based care in East Africa and Asia, thereby reaching the poorest and most vulnerable children in rural and periurban areas.

ETAT guidelines are designed to deal with common problems in paediatric departments in low resource setting where

  • Inpatient mortality is high.
  • Many of the patients die within 24 hours of admission

Common problems are e.g. inadequate service, low training level of staff, especially in emergency care, no or few written protocols, delays in initiating care. ETAT guidelines are developed by WHO and are adapted from the Advanced Paediatric Life Support (APLS) guidelines used in western countries. ETAT guidelines are specifically aligned to common problems in the paediatric basic emergency care of in institutions with limited resources. They identify children with immediately life-threatening conditions which are most frequently seen in developing countries, such as obstruction of the airway and other breathing problems caused by infections, shock, severely altered central nervous system function (coma or convulsions), and severe dehydration in a structured and comprehensible manner and present simple yet clear guidelines for their medical care.

These guidelines were developed in Malawi, and were field-tested in several other countries including Angola, Brazil, Cambodia, Indonesia, Kenya and Niger.

In many places, ETAT is the cornerstone of decision making at first contact with a patient.

 

The paediatric ETAT+ course

The working group ETAT emerged within the GTP on the initiative of three alumni of the Intensive Course on Tropical Paediatrics (TropPaed), who have experienced the clinical significance of ETAT on various missions abroad. They have been trained as tutors and have lead trainings abroad. The first ETAT+ training by this working group was held successfully in September 2018 in Witten/Herdecke and received very positive feedback. The training is now becoming a regular event.

The course focusses on improving global child health through capacity building as well as assessment and treatment of sick children in low resource settings. It offers an introduction to a well-organized “critical care pathway” and good quality, basic paediatric emergency care, which can help to reduce paediatric hospital mortality.

Course content

Besides from lectures, the course is based on an interactive training. Skills stations include:

  • Bag and mask application
  • Intraosseous canula insertion
  • CPR of children and neonates
  • Many practical case simulations
After the course you will be able to:
  • Triage all sick children when they arrive at a health facility, into the following categories:
    • those with emergency signs
    • those with priority signs
    • those who are non-urgent cases
  • Assess a child’s airway and breathing and give emergency treatments.
  • Assess the child’s status of circulation and level of consciousness.
  • Manage shock, coma, and convulsions in a child.
  • Assess and manage severe dehydration in a child with diarrhoea.
  • Manage acute severe malnutrition.
  • Manage a sick neonate and a premature baby.
  • Assess and manage burns and trauma in a child.
  • Plan and implement ETAT in your own working area.
Impressions from the last course

"I liked all of the practical sessions – all very useful.”
“Very practical and structured training.”
“I liked the trainer team: good mixture, lots of experience, passionate teaching.”

Working Group Students and Young Doctors

Founded by motivated GTP-members, who aim at strengthening the connections between students and the GTP.

 

Goals of the working group

  • Connecting students and young doctors interested in tropical pediatrics and international child health
  • Exchange platform for projects related to tropical pediatrics, for students and young doctors, who have not yet completed their specialty training.
  • Exchange on options for further education or specialisation in the fields of tropical medicine and tropical pediatrics during and after medschool

 

Current projects

  • Annual students-workshop during the GTP annual conference: this workshop is ideally organized „by students for students“ or at least with the help of students. So far the workshops were mainly a forum for discussions concerning different topics of tropical medicine and international child health. Future plans also involve a more practical focus with hands-on workshops on topics relevant for tropical pediatrics.
  • Continuation of the Couchsurfing Program: local students provide free housing for other students attending the the GTP annual conference to keep travel expenses for students visiting from other cities or countries as low as possible.

 

Planned projects:

  • Creating an online-platform to connect interested students and young doctors and give them a forum for exchanging information on interesting projects, research and further education in the field of tropical pediatrics and international child health.

 

Contact and participation

The working group is looking for motivated participators. If you are interested or have any questions please contact Susanna van Eys (Email: susanna.vaneys@gmx.de).

Projekteinsatz: Gynäkologe/in im Präventionsprogramm "Family Planning/Schwangerenvorsorge" in Indien

Indien – West Bengalen – Bolpur
St. Mary’s Child and Mother Health Care Center

Dauer: Ab Ende April 2019 für jeweils 2-3 Monate

Hintergrund zur Klinik und zum Projekt

Die Kinder- und Mütterklinik "St. Mary Child and Mother Health Care Centre" wurde 2011 eingeweiht und durch die deutsche Kinderärztin Dr. Monika Golembiewski aufgebaut. Sie ist 5 Monate im Jahr vor Ort ärztlich tätig. Für unsere Präventionsprogramme setzen wir Volontärsärzte gerne ein, um die Gesundheitssituation der Frauen und Kinder nachhaltig zu verändern in kleinen gemeinsamen Schritten. Die Klinik wird durch den gemeinnützigen Verein "Shining Eyes - medizinische Hilfe für Kinder und sozioökonomische Dorfentwicklung in Indien e.V."  getragen.

In unserer präventiven Kinder und Mütterklinik "St. Mary's Child and Mother Health Care Centre" in Bolpur (West-Bengalen) werden besonders Santal Kinder und deren Mütter aus den umliegenden Stammesdörfern kostenlos behandelt, wo Mangelernährung und Anämien weit verbreitet sind. Einmal wöchentlich findet eine gynäkologische Sprechstunde statt, die um Awareness Trainings zum Zyklus der Frau,  sowie Familienplanung ergänzt wird, zudem um Sensibilisierung für einen guten Schwangerschaftsverlauf mit gesundem Neugeborenen. Im Rahmen dieses gynäkologischen Präventionsprogramms finden auch präventive Checkups der Frauen mit Screening nach Cervix-Karzinom statt, sowie Aufklärung zur Vermeidung von Infektionen und Pilzen bei den Frauen (Hygienebedingungen).

 

Einsatzbeschreibung

Für die Umsetzung des gynäkologischen Präventionsprogramms setzten wir Volontärsärzte ein für eine Dauer von jeweils 2-3 Monaten. Dabei steht die Schulung unseres Personals, sowie der stationären Mütter und Frauen im Dorf im Vordergrund, wo neben einer Aufklärung zum Menstruationszyklus besonders auch Verhütungsoptionen angeboten werden sollen (wie die Hormonspirale). Einmal wöchentlich kommt ein indischer Gynäkologe zu uns zur Sprechstunde. Dazu ergänzend sollen am Vormittag präventive Checkups stattfinden mit medizinischer Untersuchung der Frauen und gezieltem Zervix Karzinom Screening, das wegen der Hygienebedingungen im Dorf gehäuft auftritt. Für die Schwangeren soll eine ausführliche Vorsorgeuntersuchung angeboten werden mit Aufklärung zu Gefahrenzeichen (EPH Gestose etc.) und der Bedeutung einer gesunden Ernährung für das Wachstum des Kindes mit Aufzeigen der lokalen Ressourcen, sowie Aufklärung zur Schutzfunktion des Kolostrums (lokal "holud" genannt). Ein Ultraschallgerät steht bereit, sowie Labormöglichkeiten/Mikroskop. Gemeinsam mit unserer Sozialarbeiterin und den Dorfgesundheitshelfern sollen Lösungen für eine verbesserte Intimhygiene entsprechend der Möglichkeiten im Dorf herausgefunden und umgesetzt werden. Ein weiteres Themenfeld ist die Frage, wie Frauen mit Kinderwunsch mit Folsäure-Präparaten effektiv erreicht werden können, was gemeinsam mit unserer Sozialarbeiterin und den Dorfgesundheitshelfern ausgearbeitet und in Absprache mit der Projektverantwortlichen Monika Golembiewski umgesetzt werden kann.

Schulungsmaterialien zum Menstruationszyklus und Family Planning sind vorhanden. Weitere Themen können nach Bedarf ausgearbeitet werden.

Dieses präventive Programm wird in Absprache mit unserem indischen Gynäkologen umgesetzt, der auch in einem Nursing Home operiert (z.B. Uterus Prolaps), bzw. Therapien einleitet. Unser indisches Koordinationsteam hilft Verlegungen zu arrangieren bei Komplikationen, z.B. bei frühzeitigem Blasensprung, akuten Blutungen oder Karzinomen etc.

 

Voraussetzungen

Hilfreich sind ein Facharzt im Bereich Gynäkologie, sowie ggf. erste tropenmedizinische Erfahrung. Wir suchen Menschen, die sich sensibel auf die Probleme im ländlichen Indien einlassen und mit den Santals als Ureinwohner Indiens verbinden möchten. Die Santal-Frauen sind dankbar um die Möglichkeit ihre Probleme auszusprechen und Aufklärung zu finden in einer vertrauensvollen Atmosphäre.

 

Vergütung / Unterbringung / Lebensraum

Kost und Logis während dieses Volontär-Einsatzes werden gestellt, wobei in unserer präventiven Kinderklinik in Bolpur Gästezimmer vorhanden sind, sowie ein Aufenthaltsraum mit Kochmöglichkeit. Frühstück, Mittag- und Abendessen bereitet die Krankenhausküche zu. Fahrräder sind vorhanden, sodass man in der Stadt sich frei bewegen kann, wo es auch eine Universität, Cafés etc. gibt.

 

Kontakt

Wenn Sie sich für eine Mitarbeit in unserem Präventionsprojekt interessieren, schreiben Sie gerne eine Mail mit Ihrer Motivation zur Entwicklungsarbeit und Erfahrungshintergrund (Silvia Golembiewski: silvia.golembiewski@gmail.com). Wir freuen uns auf ein Kennenlernen.

 


Projekteinsatz: Kinderarzt/ärztin im Präventionsprogramm "Reduktion kindlicher Mangelernährung" in Indien

Indien – West Bengalen – Bolpur
St. Mary’s Child and Mother Health Care Center

Dauer: 6-8 Wochen im August/September 2019, Februar/März 2020 oder August/September 2020

 

Hintergrund zur Klinik und zum Projekt

Die Kinderklinik "St. Mary Child and Mother Health Care Centre" wurde 2011 eingeweiht und durch die deutsche Kinderärztin Dr. Monika Golembiewski aufgebaut. Sie ist 5 Monate im Jahr vor Ort ärztlich tätig. Angebunden ist eine präventive Dorfarbeit, zu deren Umsetzung projektbezogen Volontärsärzte eingesetzt werden.
Die Klinik wird durch den gemeinnützigen Verein "Shining Eyes - medizinische Hilfe für Kinder und sozioökonomische Dorfentwicklung in Indien e.V." getragen.

Angelehnt an unsere präventive Kinderklinik "St. Mary's Child and Mother Health Care Centre" in Bolpur, West-Bengalen, findet in 2019/2020 ein Dorfprojekt zur Reduktion der kindlichen Mangelernährung statt. Auf Basis der vorherigen Erhebungen und Projekte werden in 21 Santal-Dörfern alle Kinder unter 3 Jahren auf Anämie, wasting/stunting, sowie klinische Zeichen kindlicher Mangelernährung gescreent (wie Bitot spots, Perlèche etc.) und halbjährlich untersucht. Über Sozialarbeiter und Dorfhelfer werden Familien mit mangelernährten/anämischen Kindern im Anschluss betreut mit Eisengabe, häuslichem Kochunterricht (complementary feeding) und Anlegen eines Küchengartens, zudem Awareness Einheiten zu Mangelernährung/Anämie, Notfällen bei Kindern und Schwangeren, sowie Family Planning.

 

Einsatzbeschreibung

Zur Umsetzung dieses Projekts suchen wir Kinderärztinnen und Kinderärzte, die projektbezogen die Kinder nach einer bestehenden Struktur in den 21 Dörfern untersuchen. Die Einsätze sind für jeweils 6-8 Wochen geplant und finden in Kooperation mit einer lokalen NGO statt, die die Dorfbesuche organisiert. Die Kinder (im wesentlichen 6-36 Monate) sind auf Infekte zu untersuchen, sowie auf Symptome von Vitamin A Mangel, Vitamin B Mangel usw. Abzuklären ist, ob Tuberkulose in der Familie vorkommt mit ggf. Vermittlung an unsere Kinderklinik zur Durchführung der nötigen Diagnostik. Ebenso schwer kranke Kinder (Pneumonie etc.), sowie Kinder mit Herzfehler und neurologisch auffällige Kinder sollen an unsere Klinik überwiesen werden. Ein Team an Sozialarbeitern/Laborant übernimmt das Messen und Wiegen der Kinder, sowie Hb-Messung im Dorf, sodass diese Ergebnisse zur Untersuchung vorliegen.

Parallel zu dieser Projektarbeit ist eine Einbindung im Krankenhausalltag möglich (wie begleiten der Visite der stationären Kinder, punktuell Mitarbeit in der Ambulanz, Fortbildung des Personals, bzw. Durchführen von Ultraschall etc., je nach eigenem Erfahrungshintergrund auch). Die tägliche Sprechstunde mit Versorgung der Patienten liegt dabei in der Verantwortung unserer indischen Ärzte.

Projektberichte finden Sie auf der Homepage von "Shining Eyes".
