Abstract:

Session presented on: Monday, November 18, 2013

The Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) is a health-care community dedicated to improving the health of children. As innovators in child health, SickKids aims to engage in knowledge translation, sharing its expertise globally in an effort to champion for accessible, comprehensive and sustainable child health-care systems worldwide. Over the past seven years, through SickKids International, the Hospital for Sick Children has participated in numerous global outreach initiatives in the areas of research, clinical care and education.

This presentation will discuss the development, implementation and widening scope of the International Health Assignment Workshop (IHAw) initiative. IHAw is an interactive half-day course which introduces participants to the Core Competency Framework for International Health Consultants developed by the World Health Professions Alliance (WHPA). The workshop seeks to prepare its participants to apply the knowledge and skills gained to their professional practice with a commitment to providing health care from a global approach.

This presentation will review the learning objectives of the IHAw, discussing how each objective relates to the domains identified in the WHPA Core Competencies Framework. It will also delve into the challenges of developing an introductory level educational experience will still meeting the learning needs of a diverse array of healthcare professionals with varying levels of exposure to the field of global health consultancy work. Evaluation and future directions of the IHAw initiative will also be highlighted, including the opportunity of expanding the workshop and customizing the content to meet the needs of unique organizations worldwide.
