Practical Pediatric Endocrinology in a Limited Resource Setting Excerpt :

Practical Pediatric Endocrinology in a Limited Resource Setting provides a guide for managing pediatric endocrine problems in a limited resource setting, together with an outline of the bases for these disorders. The book outlines a plan for coming to a likely diagnosis in situations where resources are constrained, and suggests ways to access more sophisticated technologies for diagnostic confirmation and extension of available tools. Further extending and complementing each chapter is a series of scenarios for use as teaching and learning tools. Together with a clinical question, all chapters include a suggested outline for assessment that assists readers facing similar situations in daily practice. Each scenario works through a typical series of deductive steps used to establish a working diagnosis, while considering both a differential diagnosis and reminding readers of current knowledge around the subject matter. Provides a working knowledge of pediatric endocrinology, from the viewpoint of practical application, for residents and clinicians practicing in settings with scarce material resources Features clinically based chapters, empahsising workable diagnoses and management plans in limited resource situations Includes information on Type 1 diabetes mellitus, given its increasing prevalence worldwide Describes basic research techniques and planning, intended to foster collaboration between colleagues and other centers in clinical or basic research, which can inform clinical practice and drive innovation

Essentials for Practice of Medicine in the Frontline Excerpt :

Essentials for practice of medicine in the frontline is an abridged synthesis of selected topics from family medicine, internal medicine, pediatrics, obstetrics and gynecology, pathology, and psychiatry; also, ophthalmology, otorhinolaryngology, hematology, and dermatology. Each section covers ten salient and commonly-encountered areas of practice by physicians. Multiple-choice questions and answers accompany each Section. The setting of writing is a developing country. The contents are relevant to doctors who practice in the medically advanced countries and those in the developing countries. Medically, the world has become an interesting place. Air travel, frequent movement, and resettlement of people now mean that doctors in developed countries can no longer stay and practice within the clinical conditions that were typical in their practice settings. Things have changed, as they cannot be certain of what medical conditions that patients from various parts of the world will present to them. Doctors also cannot be unequivocal that an emergency in a distant part of the globe may not require their attention. This book therefore meets the needs of doctors, irrespective of their length of practice or where they practice. What applies to doctors certainly applies to medical students. This book is an atypical book as it puts in its two volumes of less than 500 pages of 8.5”x 11” per volume material that any doctor, anywhere, should keep on their office or consulting room bookshelf. The e-book version is also a veritable companion.

Este libro fue concebido como un recurso accesible y útil para los pediatras e incluso para médicos generales y otros trabajadores de la salud, con el objetivo de proporcionar lineamientos claros de diagnóstico y estrategias de tratamiento. Muchos endocrinólogos experimentados en todo el mundo han contribuido a este libro, muchos de los cuales han viajado y han enseñado ampliamente en países en vías de desarrollo. El libro resultante no tiene la intención de ocupar el lugar de los textos estándar; su objetivo es proporcionar información breve y actualizada sobre las afecciones endocrinas, con énfasis en las posibilidades de diagnóstico y las pruebas analíticas y de imagen más útiles y de bajo costo, así como en el tratamiento más apropiado de acuerdo con la posibilidad que se tiene de utilizar recursos terapéuticos cuando, independientemente de que estén indicados, resulten accesibles. También se proporciona una guía sobre cómo acceder a tecnologías más sofisticadas cuando sea necesario. "La influencia de este libro de texto va mucho más allá del diagnóstico y el tratamiento de las enfermedades endocrinas pediátricas en los países en vías de desarrollo. Apoyará las iniciativas existentes que apuntan a la creación de la capacitación en Endocrinología Pediátrica en entornos donde estas condiciones no se reconocen en gran medida. Servirá como un recurso para la capacitación de enfermeras, dietistas, funcionarios de salud y otros profesionales de la salud que trabajan como aliados de los endocrinólogos pediátricos recién capacitados. Les proporcionará una herramienta para abogar por los niños y adolescentes con enfermedades endocrinas y los ayudará a sensibilizar a los legisladores y a las autoridades locales de salud pública sobre la importancia de proporcionar a los pacientes fármacos simples y relativamente asequibles que figuran en la Lista de medicamentos esenciales para niños de la Organización Mundial de la Salud (OM

Telemedicine in Low Resource Settings Volume 2 Excerpt :

Telemedicine networks to support healthcare workers in resource-limited settings (often for humanitarian purposes) have evolved in a largely autonomous way. Communication between the networks has been informal and relatively limited in scope. This situation could be improved by developing a comprehensive approach to the collection and dissemination of information. While many telemedicine networks remain experimental, some have matured to become routine services which assist health care delivery in challenging environments. For example, there are a few networks which have been in operation for over a decade, and provide store-and-forward telemedicine services to doctors in lowand middle-income countries. These networks deliver clinically useful services and improved healthcare access. However, like much of telemedicine, the formal evidence for their cost-effectiveness remains weak. Topics of current research interest therefore include the cost-effectiveness of telemedicine in resource-limited settings. Other topics of interest concern outcomes data (and methods for gathering it) such as patient quality of life following a telemedicine episode, the knowledge-gain of healthcare staff involved in telemedicine, and staff recruitment and retention in rural areas. Finally, there is little published information about the performance of these telemedicine networks (and methods for measuring it), about how best to manage them, and about how to share resources between them. Following the previous volume, this Research Topic will document current evidence supporting the use of telemedicine in resource-limited settings.

Yearbook of Pediatric Endocrinology 2014 Excerpt :

The body of knowledge in most medical specialties is rapidly expanding, making it virtually impossible to follow all advances in clinical and basic sciences that are relevant to a given field. This is particularly true in pediatric endocrinology, at the cross-road of pediatrics, endocrinology, development and genetics. Providing abstracts of articles that report the year’s breakthrough developments in the basic sciences and evidence-based new knowledge in clinical research and clinical practice that are relevant to the field, the 'Yearbook of Pediatric Endocrinology' keeps busy clinicians and scientists, pediatric endocrinologists, and also pediatricians and endocrinologists informed on new advances. Twelve Associate Editors and their co-authors selected from several thousand papers those that brought the most meaningful new information, summarized them and provided comments to put them into perspective. The papers are classified into those that identify new genes involved in diseases, new hormones, concepts revised or re-centered, important observations for clinical practice, large-scale clinical trials, new mechanisms, new paradigms, important review articles, new fears and new hopes. Because the Yearbook is endorsed by the European Society for Paediatric Endocrinology (ESPE), its publication is linked to the annual meeting of the ESPE. The 'Yearbook of Pediatric Endocrinology 2014' covers the medical and scientific literature from June 2013 through May 2014.
