Free paediatric endocrinology and diabetes e-learning web portal available
Medical students, fellows, specialists, nurses and tutors around the world are being encouraged to make use of a free e-learning web portal.
The ISPAD-ESPE e-learning platform is an interactive learning environment for up-to-date topics in paediatric endocrinology and diabetes.
It has been specifically developed so users can share, contribute and develop knowledge through the use of interactive chapters and case-based learning.
It covers core and advanced level learning modules on normal physical growth and development, pathophysio- logical mechanisms and current views on diagnostic and therapeutic interventions.
All the content has been created and reviewed by international experts in diabetes and endocrinology.
Associate Professor May Ng who has been on the Committee for both European Society of Pediatric Endocrinology (ESPE) and International Society for Pediatric and Adolescent Diabetes (ISPAD) since 2016, said: “We are delighted to see the continued success of the ESPE-ISPAD free global e-learning platform with over 20,000 individuals from 154 countries using this free global e-learning platform.
“During this COVID-19 pandemic, e-learning was extensively used and has become an increasingly significant mode of delivering effective healthcare education programs globally. The Resource-Limited Countries (RLC) Modules also provide an up-to-date globally accessible multilingual curriculum in four other languages: French, Spanish, Swahili and Chinese, enabling access to non-English speaking healthcare professionals and students.
“Those who are interested in contributing to new chapters or providing case studies to accompany the modules for paediatric endocrinology and diabetes are invited to contact firstname.lastname@example.org.”
The portal provides a rich source of up-to-date information freely accessible through an automated login procedure and can be viewed on computers and mobile devices.
Chapters and case-based discussions cover a variety of paediatric endocrine and diabetes core subjects including physiology and pathophysiology.
Practical approaches to management and treatment of both common and rare conditions are also provided.
The chapters are presented in an easy to view bullet point format and are accompanied by real-life clinical cases. This enables users to apply their knowledge so they can diagnose and manage specific conditions in a stepwise and interactive manner.
