    Course venue

    The course has previously been taking place at Schloß Rauischholzhausen which is the conference center of the University of Gießen. We were happy to be able to host our course at this historical and beautiful site. It offered learning space and accommodation combined in the same building and due to the affiliation with the University the prices are fair. A good variety of seminar rooms compliment our course concept of combining lectures with small group activities. Moving our course to this location in 2016 has proven to have been worthwhile. The castle is about to be rennovated in due time so we might need to move to a different location. We will make sure to find a suitable venue.

    AG Studenten und junge Ärzte: Workshop bei der 38. GTP Jahrestagung

    Bericht zum Workshop der AG Studenten und junge Ärzte

    38. GTP Jahrestagung, Berlin 2020
    “Gender Aspects of Global Child Health”

    Der diesjährige Studentenworkshop der GTP-Jahrestagung hat interessierten Medizinstudierenden und jungen ÄrztInnen das Konzept von „Emergency Triage Assessment and Treatment“-Kursen (kurz: ETAT+) vorgestellt: hierbei handelt es sich um speziell für den Einsatz in Low-Resource-Settings entwickelte klinische Leitlinien/Strategien für häufige pädiatrische Leitsymptome bzw. Krankheitsbilder, die unbehandelt mit einer hohen Mortalität einhergehen.

    Die TeilnehmerInnen kamen in den Genuss eines ETAT+-Schnupperkurses mit Themen wie z.B. Neugeborenen-Reanimation, Trauma oder Verbrühung/Verbrennung. Nachdem die wichtigsten theoretischen Grundlagen in Form von Kurzvorträgen durch die „AG Studierende und junge ÄrztInnen“ vermittelt wurden, folgte ein praktischer Teil, bei dem das Vorgehen konkret an nachgestellten Fallbeispielen in Kleingruppen und mit tatkräftiger Unterstützung durch ETAT+-DozentInnen geübt wurde.

    Ein gelungener Auftakt in die GTP-Jahrestagung für die OrganisatorInnen und TeilnehmerInnen!

    Erfahrungsbericht von Karolina Friedrichsen, einer teilnehmenden Studentin:

     

    Die Konferenz fing für mich mit dem Studenten Workshop an. Ich setzte mich ins Publikum und wusste nicht, was mich dort erwartet. Zu der Zeit befand ich mich im zweiten Fachsemester und nahm somit an meiner ersten Konferenz teil. Ich fühlte mich dementsprechend unsicher und wusste, dass mein junges Alter sehr auffällig war, da ich dort von erfahrenen ÄrztInnen und AktivistInnen aus unterschiedlichen Ländern umzingelt war.

     

    StudentInnen und junge ÄrztInnen präsentierten unterschiedliche Aspekte des „Emergency Triage, Assessment and Treatment (ETAT+)“. In meiner Unerfahrenheit hatte ich noch nie etwas von ETAT gehört, geschweige denn es selbst angewendet. Es wurde erklärt was ETAT bedeutet, wann es einsetzbar ist und wie man es lernt.

     

    Nach dem theoretischen Teil, fing nun der praktische Teil des Workshops an. Wir lernten „hands-on“ wie ETAT in kleinem Ausmaß angewendet wird. In meiner ersten Gruppe, mussten wir ein nicht mehr atmendes Kind versorgen. Zwei Ärzte spielten uns die Situation vor und erklärten die wichtigsten Aspekte. Dann waren wir an der Reihe, Freiwillige vor. Bei dieser Station fühlte ich mich trotz Anleitung nicht sicher genug, um mit anzupacken. Ich schaute also zu und nahm mir vor, bei der nächsten Simulation mitzumachen. Nach 15 Minuten war die Zeit um und es ging weiter zum zweiten Fall.

     

    „Ein Kind ist in ein Feuer gefallen und der Vater trägt es in seinen Armen in deine improvisierte Notaufnahme“ war hier das Setting. Nachdem die StationsleiterIn einmal vorzeigte wie man im Idealfall reagiert, durften wir das „Kind“ versorgen. Ich stellte mich mit meiner Kommilitonin an den Tisch auf dem die Puppe lag. Ich spürte zwar eine gewisse Aufregung, wusste jedoch, dass wir von anderen Menschen umgeben waren, für die diese Erfahrung auch neu war. Die erfahrenen ÄrztInnen und StudentInnen sahen uns zu, sagten laut in die Runde wie die Handgriffe besser auszuführen waren und gaben uns Tipps. Manche hatten so eine Situation schon selber erlebt und teilten ihre Erlebnisse. In dem Moment schätze ich es sehr, von deren Erfahrung und Geschichten lernen zu dürfen. Die Zeit war um und wir durften, nach einer kurzen Rückmeldung der StationsleiterIn, zurück in unsere Gruppe.

     

    Nach dieser ersten Erfahrung mit der Studenten AG, war ich sehr begeistert von der positiven und ergreifenden Art, auf die das Thema vorgestellt wurde und wie StudentInnen angesprochen wurden. Es handelte sich um meinen ersten Kongress und trotzdem fühlte ich mich im Workshop gut aufgehoben. Ich konnte nicht nur medizinisch, sondern auch menschlich sehr viel von anderen lernen und mich außerdem mit anderen StudentInnen, welche sich in einer ähnlichen Situation befanden, austauschen.

    GTP unterstützt L'appel Deutschland e.V. beim PEAST Training

    Das pädiatrische Trainingsprogramm “PEAST” (Paediatric Emergency Course and Advanced Skill Training) ist ein Teilprojekt des vom Verein L’appel Deutschland e.V. entworfenen und von der Initiative Klinikpartnerschaften geförderten Programms “Strengthening capacities to reduce child mortality and improve maternal health in Sierra Leone”. Grundlage des Kindernotfalltrainings sind die sierra-leonischen ETAT (Emergency Triage, Assessment and Treatment) -Guidelines von 2020 weshalb L‘appel sich die GTP AG ETAT+ als kompetenten Partner mit ins Boot holte. Einerseits wird so sicher gestellt, dass ausreichend qualifizierte ETAT-Trainer*innen für die Schulungen zur Verfügung stehen. Andererseits entsteht für die durch die AG frisch ausgebildeten ETAT-Trainer*innen so die Möglichkeit, ihre neu erlangten Fähigkeiten unter Supervision im Feld anzubringen.

    Im Zeitraum von 2020 bis 2022 werden in einem ersten Schritt gemeinsam mit einem wachsenden Team von lokalen Trainer*innen insgesamt 12 Kurse angeboten. Diese richten sich zunächst vornehmlich an durch vorausgegangene Aus- und Weiterbildungsprojekte von L’appel vorgebildete medizinische Fachkräfte des Magbenteh Community Hospitals, der kooperierenden Partnerklinik von L’appel und enthalten neben den üblichen ETAT+ – Inhalten kontextadapierte Schwerpunkte wie POCUS (Point of Care Ultrasound), CPAP-Versorgung und den Umgang mit hochansteckenden Krankheiten wie Ebola und Lassa-Fieber. Nach einem gelungenen Start 2020 werden seit 2021 in einem zweiten Schritt auch weitere Gesundheitseinrichtungen in das Programm mit einbezogen. Die Evaluation des Kurses findet in Zusammenarbeit mit der Stiftungsprofessur für globale Kindergesundheit der Universität Witten-Herdecke statt. Das Projekt ist als klassisches “Train the Trainers” Konzept gedacht und soll schrittweise vollständig in die Hände des lokalen Teams übergeben werden.

    Ansprechpartner für L’appel Deutschland e.V. ist Nicolas Aschoff (Email)

    Dr. Reinhard Koppenleitner (GTP member and vice chairman of the German Alliance for Climate Change and Health [KLUG] e.V.) will set the scene with an introductory talk followed by a discussion round including planning of further activities in regards to climate change within the GTP.

     

    Invitation to found a working group "Climate Change and Global Child Health" within the GTP

    Our vision

    The GTP aims at „improving child health world-wide“, especially in countries with limited ressources. In order to achieve this goal a thorough analysis and impression of the multiple factors endangering child health world-wide is needed.  Health is not only influenced by the lack of preventive and curing medical services on national level but also by various global factors.

    One central global component is climate change (Castello, Lancet 2009), which even manifests itself as climate crisis or climate catastrophe in some parts of the world.

    The planet is facing increasing numbers of heat waves (Robinson 2013), floddings, droughts, crop loss, decrease in lokal productivity (i.e. http://www.fao.org/climate-change), water scarcity, air polution, fires as well as wars and displacements resulting from these issues.

    The consequences for health an life are known: Malnutrition including illnesses caused by it as well as increased vulnerability towards further pathologies due to a weakened immune system. Spread of zoonotic infections due to vector distribution. Migration. Flight and displacement resulting in among other things the loss of access to health care structures and education for children and adolescents. Mental health issues resulting from these circumstances are still a very neglected component.

    Prior estimates of climate change progression and its consequences need to constantly be adjusted due to more rapid progression and paint a dramatic picture for the upcoming decades. Climate researchers agree that there is a detectabe acceleration in the rising of the sea level as well as an increase in uninhabitable territory.

    All people are effected but the heaviest burden lies on vulnerable groups like children in the global south. The highest fatality rates, far exeeding the current level, are to be expected within these groups. We are currently witnesssing the beginnings of this development in Eastern Africa (https://kenya.savethechildren.net/news/climate-change-wajir-risks-mother-and-child-survival), Australia or in the Middle East. Therefore following questions need to be asked: (1) How can we avert this development (Mitigation) and (2) how can we weaken its consequences for the people (Adaptation)?

    The GTP can play an important role in advocating for affected populations and can use its international network to spread information about the effects of climate change on child health. Ideally the GTP will be perceived as advisor to government institutions and political decision makers who engage with topics regarding development cooperations, who define projects and who finance their implementation.

    As a first step the GTP will have to gather information from its partners in the global south about their experiences with the impact of climate change and to discuss those within the organization. Thereafter the GTP will have to define ways how to incorporate climate change thematically into its strategies, which priority it should be given and which activities will be possible and reasonable. In order to proceed effectively we will have a close look at existing information and ressources of other relevant organizations and we will aim at close collaboration with organizations, who primarily focus on prevention, research and political engagement in regards to climate change.

    In order to establish importance for the topic of climate change within the GTP and in order to actively address it we would like to constitute a working group "Climate Change and Global Child Health". If you would like to participate in the process and activities please contact Dr. Reinhard Koppenleitner (email)
