Pediatric Refugee Health Care Delivery in the Community Setting: An Educational Workshop for Multidisciplinary Family-Centered Care During Resettlement

Date of Review: July, 2023

This curriculum published on MedEd Portal is designed for healthcare professionals caring for a pediatric refugee population. The curriculum consists of instructor and participant materials including powerpoint slide presentations, case-based breakout group instructions, and a pre and post test evaluation tool. The curriculum is aimed at healthcare professionals and students, and can be modified for those who already have a background knowledge in the care of refugee populations. the workshop is available in both 1-hour and 3-hour formats, offering flexibility in scheduling. The choice between versions can be made based on the desired depth and breadth of the material to be covered. This resource could easily be integrated during clinical clerkships and with GME pediatric trainees.  –Ashley Smith-Nunez, MD, NCEAS [Edited by Dr. Ashti Doobay-Persaud]
