The Lancet: Proposed global child health competencies for UK paediatricians

Training needs to equip paediatricians working in high-income countries to be able to:

  • Deliver effective health care to children and families from diverse ethnic, cultural, religious, socioeconomic, and educational backgrounds
  • Effectively manage diseases that are prevalent in the major diaspora communities
  • Understand the specific needs of children affected by conflict or trafficking, and child refugees, asylum seekers, and recent migrants
  • Be aware of alternative approaches to disease prevention and health-care delivery, particularly approaches that maximise the effectiveness of scarce resources
  • Have sufficient awareness of how global health issues and inequalities affect child health to be effective advocates for the improved physical and mental health of the world’s children

See article for more details.
