This field guide serves as a tool for practitioners working with children at risk of infection or diagnosed with MDR-TB. The guide was developed by a team of experts who have jointly treated hundreds of children with the disease over the last two decades over every region of the world. The guide focuses on issues relevant in clinical and programmatic practices and should be considered complementary to other existing recommendations.
Attendees learned about the changing landscape of treatment options and how they affect the patient experience. The program featured a physician and nurse practitioner who specialize in liver disease and two patient advocates who shared their experience of living with Hep C. All four panelists were available for a live question and answer session following the presentation.
This fact sheet explains the Whole School, Whole Community, Whole Child Model (WSCC), that incorporates the components of CSH and the tenets of the ASCD’s* whole child approach to strengthen a unified and collaborative approach to learning and health.
