And now they found another novelty like as online case analysis. A truly unique case was chosen for the analysis. That is the cerebral form of West Nile disease in a five-year-old child. The conference took place on May 28 at the department media center.
More than 80 participants joined the conference. They are interns and teachers from Ivano-Frankivsk, Dnipro, Kryvyi Rih.
The brilliant report was prepared by interns of the second year of study Oleksandra Babich and Natalia Selionova. They accompanied the patient with a rehabilitation team of doctors consisting of a pediatrician, neurologist, psychologist, occupational therapist, speech therapist, rehabilitation specialist, masseur. Interns told about the disease and its dynamics, answered numerous questions from participants.
The format was successful. All participants expressed a desire to continue on-line analysis of complex clinical cases, because such training gives invaluable results due to the high professionalism of the staff of the Department of Pediatrics.
