Lesbos – Pediatric teachings Mytilini Hospital

In order to provide essential medical care to the refugees staying on Lesbos, Boat Refugee Foundation aims to maintain its excellent relations with Mytilini Hospital. In the past, BRF was able to donate a large quantity of important medical equipment to the hospital combined with teachings (LINK). Currently, the local pediatricians help us greatly to give vaccinations to refugee children (LINK). Now, BRF has built on its previous teachings to the local hospital staff and provided a two day Pediatric Emergency Training.

Alexandra Vinograd, our long term medical volunteer and Paediatric Emergency Physician, together with colleague Keri Cohn offered an interesting and interactive training to the pediatric interns and pediatricians of Mytilini Hospital. Due to the economic crisis ánd the refugee crisis, local doctors do not often receive additional medical trainings. Both the pediatricians and the pediatric interns stated to be very happy to attend the lectures and participate in the simulations about topics like pediatric care, x-ray review in pediatric trauma, and near drowning of children.
