Target Audience and Needs
This education series targets pediatric hematology-oncology faculty, residents, fellows, medical officers, clinical officers, nurses, pharmacists, medical students, and other healthcare professionals in the Global HOPE network in Africa and in Houston who help manage children with pediatric hematological malignancies. The series aims to expand the knowledge of learners about the clinical challenges and constraints of treating pediatric hematological malignancies in resource-limited settings. Reviews of adapted treatment protocols will be used as an impetus for discussion. Recommendations will also be given about how to implement those protocols in clinical practice to enhance the quality of cancer care and to improve patient outcomes.
Educational methods will include lectures, case presentations, and literature review.
At the conclusion of the sessions, the participants should be able to:
- Analyze the key features of the case presented and the challenges of appropriately managing malignancies in different resource-limited settings.
- Discuss the standard of care—regardless of setting—for pediatric cancers and blood disorders and the adaptations required to provide the best available care for patients in resource-limited settings.
- Identify the ethical implications of managing pediatric malignancies and blood disorders in resource-limited settings.
- Evaluate, modify, and effectively implement protocols to address the particular clinical needs and resource constraints at their practice site.
Participants may be asked to complete a session evaluation.
