Global Child Health Curriculum
Developed in 2011 by the Candian Paediatric Society’s Global Child and Youth Health Section, the Global Child Health Curriculum is a training program designed to provide Canadian paediatric trainees with foundational knowledge around global child health issues.
The curriculum is made for educators and consists of four, one-hour interactive modules that have been designed to be taught as an educational series or standalone pieces, easily integrated into existing residency curricula. The modules focus on:
- Global Child Mortality
- Fever in the Returned Child Traveller
- Children and Youth New to Canada
The complete educational package includes a trainer manual, four slide decks, resident handouts, multiple choice questions, structured clinical exam cases, etc..
