Introduction l.jpg

Introduction

  • No specific pediatric workshop dedicated so far to the initiatives of cooperation, but increased awareness of the matter

  • ISN organizing a COMGAN workshop during WCN, Milan 2009

  • Pediatric contributions in the literatureabout the epidemiology of renal diseases in the developing countries, but not about models of cooperation


Slide3 l.jpg

(Cont.)

  • Pediatric Nephrologists always open to educational matters (courses, stages for doctors of developing countries)

  • ESPN members regularly receiving trainees from abroad and developing differents types of projects

  • No systematic documentation so far of the initiatives of pediatric cooperation worldwide

    • IPNA Fellowship Committee starting to require feed-back and track doctors receiving educational grants


Is cooperation with developing countries only an educational teaching training issue l.jpg

Is cooperation with developing countries only an educational (teaching /training) issue?

A provocative question


The start of the cooperation with the pediatric nephrology unit of managua l.jpg

  • 1997-1999Stage in Milano of Dr. Mabel Sandoval Dìaz

  • 1999-2000Complain about lack of tools to properly diagnose and treat renal diseases in the Nicaraguan Hospitals

  • 2000Visit to Nicaragua of Italian pediatric nephrologists and recognition of the paucity of human, instrumental and economic resources at Hospital Infantil MJR

  • 2001Start of the project of cooperation, financed initially by the Associazione per il Bambino Nefropatico, Milano

Characteristics of the initial project l.jpg

Characteristics of the initial project

  • Free of charge basic assistance for children with renal diseases

    • Lab test, drugs, imaging (in the private system, whenever necessary)

  • Establishing shared nephrologicalprotocols for the main kidney and UT diseases (the 10 clinical syndromes)

  • Establishing a Pediatric Nephrology Unit in a public Children University Hospital in Managua

    • Scaled training in Milano of the different components of the team, (Pediatric Nephrologists, Urologists, Imaging specialist, Pathologists, Dialysis Nurse)

    • Building a new Pediatric Nephrology ward


Characteristics of the initial project9 l.jpg

Characteristics of the initial project

  • Implementation of a database

    • to gather data on the epidemiology of renal diseases (with special regard to CKD)

    • to record and monitor clinical activity

    • to make quality control of the diagnoses

      5.Web connection between Milano and Managua for clinical consultation


Expansion of the initial project l.jpg

Expansion of the initial project

  • Start of a RRT program (2 beds for HD, CAPD and 6 living donor Tx per year) for selected children with ESRD

  • Establishing a Pediatric Nephrology Network including 5 District Hospitals covering about 55% of the Nicaraguan population

    • to increase diagnostic and therapeutic power in each hospital (supply of lab test, medications, imaging tools, shared protocols)

    • to avoid patient and family unnecessary transfer to Managua, whenever possible


Expansion of the initial project11 l.jpg

Expansion of the initial project

  • Proposal of the model of cooperation to other Central America countries

    • Sharing database with Guatemala

    • Conference on the Prevention and Management of CKD in five Central America countries (29th of February 2008)

  • Extension of the project to a 6th District Hospital where CKD prevalence is allegedly high (61% of population covered)

  • Project of early diagnosis and treatment of kidney and UT diseases in the peripheral “Unidades de Salud” depending from the 6 District Hospitals

Topics28 l.jpg

Topics

  • Methodology of the project

  • Results of the project

    • Clinical activity

    • Epidemiology

  • Points of discussion


Points of discussion l.jpg

Points of Discussion

  • The problem of allocation of financial resources to pediatric subspecialties by Health Ministries of developing countries

    • Low budget expected

    • More for primary care than for tertiary care

  • Top-down model (development of a central unit prior to peripheral hospitals) preferable for pediatric subspecialties?

  • Financial feasibility of the assistance to CKD/ESRD in a developing country and scaled transfer of the costs to the government


Points of discussion30 l.jpg

Points of Discussion

  • Need for fund-raising programs from private and public institutions to finance a cooperation project

  • Role of data-bases to assess and monitor the efficacy of a project and to allocate financial resources

  • Ethical issues, like allocation of financial resources to dialysis/Tx vs prevention programs of CKD or selection criteria for patients in need for RRT

  • Extension of the cooperation model to other countries (methodological aid instead of financial aid)


Is cooperation with developing countries only an educational teaching training issue31 l.jpg

Is Cooperation with developing countries only an educational (teaching/training) issue?

A provocative question

No. There’s something more to do than just giving the instructions to catch the fish

You should provide also (at least one) fishing rod


What is the fishing rod l.jpg

What is the fishing rod?

  • Experience in the development and management of a Pediatric Nephrology Unit and Pediatric Nephrology Network

  • Financial resources, through fund-raising programs, both in the developing and industrialized countries

  • Experience in scientific communication


What about scientific communication l.jpg

What about scientific communication?

  • Need for discussing models of cooperation and confronting different experiences

  • Need for spreading a culture of cooperation among pediatric nephrologists

Dedicated workshops?

Publications in pediatric journals?

Internet?

Registry?
