Healthcare professionals in North America are currently faced with the challenge of both treating and preventing the ever-increasing incidence of chronic diseases such as Obesity, Diabetes and Cardiovascular disease.
The same holds true for community healthcare practitioners in French Polynesia, with additional budgetary, resource and delivery challenges. They are experiencing similar epidemiological transitions where communicable diseases are decreasing while non-communicable diseases are increasing. Confronting the challenges of providing quality patient care in the face of limited budgets and resources that impact healthcare delivery and access, is fast becoming a global issue for healthcare practitioners.
Now, more than ever, it is important for healthcare professionals to collaborate with colleagues and global counterparts to gain cross-cultural perspectives and updates in the treatment and prevention of disease. By design, this program offers opportunities for medical professionals to compare and contrast current best practices to provide quality patient care and outcomes in their own professional setting.
In-Country Healthcare Topics Include:
Healthcare Delivery in Isolated Communities with Limited Resources: Impact on Medical & Dental Care
Medicine at Sea: Common Tropical Diseases, Marine Life Hazards & Travelers’ Illness
Updates in Heart failure, Type 2 Diabetes, Psychopharmacology
Oral Health: Addressing Dental Diseases
Impact of Cultural Competency on Quality Patient Care
Mental Health and Well Being
NOTE: In addition to the above planned in-country topics, Distinguished PES Guest Speakers present current healthcare topics relating to their practice specialties in medicine, dentistry, nursing and allied health.
