Harvard Medical School Global Healthcare Delivery CME Course | Boston, MA | June 9-10, 2017

By Kristin Robert | 28 Feb, 2017

The Brigham and Women's Hospital Division of Global Health Equity is offering for a CME course in Global Healthcare Delivery on June 9-10, 2017. CME credit will be granted through Harvard Medical School.
The content of the course brings together expert Global Health faculty from Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School. Content will be taught by Paul Farmer, MD, PhD, Joe Rhatigan, MD, Joia Mukherjee, MD, MPH, Daniel Palazuelos, MD, MPH and Michelle Morse, MD, MPH and others.
The program is designed to give practicing clinicians an introduction to best practices in the provision of health services in low-resource settings globally. The course will discuss the biosocial determinants of health and disease and explore how programs that deliver healthcare in low-resource settings address these factors to improve the health of the communities they serve.
Topics covered in the program will include: the global burden of disease, HIV prevention and treatment, global tuberculosis control, non-communicable disease prevention and treatment, the role of community health workers in health service delivery, global health policy and human resource capacity building. The course will be taught through lectures and interactive case discussions that seek to provide participants with a rich understanding of the complexities of health care delivery in low-resource settings.
The program will include two days of course work and case discussions as well as a “meet the faculty” reception.

Dear Kristin - I notice the registration fee is $804 for a total of 15 CME
credits ($54/credit). To Elizabeth's point, while the speaker list includes
phenomenal and renowned physicians who are experts in this field, I also
understand the delivery of health care around the globe to be primarily
done by nurses. I realize this CME opportunity is organized by Harvard
Medical School and not a school of nursing, but given the number of equally
renowned nursing experts in this field I wonder if they, too, might be
included. Not least, in order to attract attendance of nurses and students,
it would be wonderful to have a reduced rate for "allied health
professions" as well as for students, which is customary for most CME
opportunities. Thank you so much for keeping us informed of any changes
that might be made.

Yes, Maggie. In fact the program is offered through the Division of Global Health Equity which is based at Brigham and Women's Hospital.

And at Brigham and Women's Hospital we have incredible nurses such as Dr. Patrice Nicholas, who is Director of Global Health and Academic Partnerships there and also Professor at the MGH Institute of Health Professions School of Nursing. Dr. Inge Corless, our long time moderator at GHDonline, has a wealth of experience and knowledge as does Dr. Eileen Stuart-Shor the head of nursing at SEED Global Health or Dr. Sheila Davis, or an HSPH alum, Dr. Nancy Street.

I have little doubt that Patrice and our other nursing colleagues would make great contributions to the program. Their exclusion is puzzling in a program purporting to be about Global Healthcare Delivery considering that, globally, nurses comprise the largest professional health cadre.
