The Section of Global Health and International Emergency Medicine is hosting it’s next Global Health Night Out on Wednesday, December 9. The topic will be “Resuscitation in Resource Poor Settings.” Dinner will be served. Venue TBD.
Articles will be posted on YaleEM soon to help guide the discussion with an eye towards the spectrum of management styles based on available resources, special considerations for pediatric patients, and what some of the guidelines say from key agencies.
Like in October, this will be a multidisciplinary event, and we are very excited to welcome faculty discussants from Pediatric Surgery and General Surgery, as Drs. Doruk Ozgediz (Yale) and Arlene Muzira (Makerere University, Uganda) will be joining us.
As important, this is a venue for all of us to become familiar with our colleagues in other departments doing global health work here at Yale. It’s open to faculty, residents and students from the whole university—particularly those on the health sciences campus. It is open and you should feel free to all you think might want to attend. EM residents please check your email for a link to RSVP so that we can have enough food. All others please, leave a comment here or hit us up on twitter @yaleem2, and we will get you a spot at the table.

Evidence-based medicine and the delivery of safe, high-quality medical care cannot occur in a vacuum. In fact, the entire system of care plays a role in each provider’s ability to realize optimal care for patients.
Dr. Venkatesh has been named co-lead on a national project along with Dr. Jeremiah Schuur of Brigham and Women’s Hospital through ACEP to support quality improvement initiatives. Their efforts are funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services through the Transforming Clinical Practice Initiative (TCPI). This large federal investment is designed to support clinicians in all 50 states through “collaborative and peer-based learning networks” designed to improve quality through enhancing clinicians’ and patients’ access to information.
Congratulations, Dr. Venkatesh, on this huge honor, and we look forward to seeing what great things you are able to accomplish through this project.
Dr. Ngaruiya, a member of our International Emergency Medicine faculty and graduate of Yale’s Global Health and International Emergency Medicine Fellowship was just published in The Hill.
