Seminar Overview/Statement of Purpose:

Healthcare practitioners are currently faced with the challenges of both treating and preventing the increasing incidence of chronic illness with a focus on obesity related diabetes and cardiovascular disease. Educating populations on the impact of diet and lifestyle on chronic disease and overall health has become a key area in addressing these global public health concerns.

The Mediterranean is known for the generally good health of its population, in part due to embracing traditional healthy lifestyles and a cuisine that provides health benefits derived from following a Mediterranean diet model. However, like many developed countries, they are challenged with implementing new healthcare reforms within the context of increasing budgetary restrictions and the healthcare demands of a growing aging population if they wish to maintain current healthcare standards.

Now, more than ever, it is important for healthcare professionals to collaborate with colleagues and global counterparts to gain cross-cultural perspectives and updates in the treatment and prevention of disease. By design, this program offers opportunities for professionals to compare and contrast current best practices to provide quality patient care and outcomes in their own professional setting.

  • Mediterranean Healthcare System Overview
  • Summary of Oral Health in the Mediterranean
  • Dental Healthcare Updates: Delivery & Treatment

Seminar Overview/Statement of Purpose:

Confronting the challenges of delivering quality patient care in the face of limited budgets and resources is fast becoming a global issue for healthcare practitioners. Medical professionals in both North America and Africa share these challenges, especially in remote areas where healthcare access and delivery are further limited. Community healthcare in both places also reflects the emerging need to establish new best practice protocols dealing with the increasing longevity of human populations and the growth of geriatric and palliative care needs. In addition, providing treatment and prevention strategies addressing chronic disease issues such as cardiovascular, obesity, and diabetes are a continuing challenge for both continents. Life expectancy for both males and females in Seychelles is high with non-communicable diseases such as cancer, heart attacks, diabetes, asthma and depression being the leading causes of mortality.

Now, more than ever, it is important for medical and dental professionals to collaborate with colleagues and global counterparts to gain cross-cultural perspectives and updates in the treatment and prevention of medical and dental problems. By design, this program offers opportunities for professionals to compare and contrast current best practices to provide quality patient care and outcomes in their own professional setting.

Planned In Country Healthcare Topics Include:

Community Healthcare Delivery in the Seychelles: Overview
Dental Care in the Seychelles: Availability and Challenges
Treatment and Prevention Strategies for Common Chronic Illnesses
Oral Health: Addressing Dental Diseases
Updates in Travel Medicine

Seminar Overview/Statement of Purpose:

Healthcare professionals in North America are currently faced with the challenge of both treating and preventing the ever-increasing incidence of chronic diseases such as Obesity, Diabetes, and Cardiovascular disease.

The same holds true for community healthcare practitioners in French Polynesia, with additional budgetary, resource, and delivery challenges. They are experiencing similar epidemiological transitions where communicable diseases are decreasing while non-communicable diseases are increasing. Confronting the challenges of providing quality patient care in the face of limited budgets and resources that impact healthcare delivery and access is becoming a global issue for healthcare practitioners.

Now, more than ever, it is important for healthcare professionals to collaborate with colleagues and global counterparts to gain cross-cultural perspectives and updates in the treatment and prevention of disease. By design, this program offers opportunities for medical professionals to compare and contrast current best practices to provide quality patient care and outcomes in their own professional settings.

Planned In Country Healthcare Topics Include:

  • Healthcare Delivery in Isolated Communities with Limited Resources: Impact on Medical & Dental Care
  • Medicine at Sea: Common Tropical Diseases, Marine Life Hazards & Travelers’ Illness
  • Emerging Healthcare Issues: Changing Demographics & Chronic Disease Patterns
  • Updates in Heart Failure, Type 2 Diabetes, Psychopharmacology
  • Oral Health: Addressing Dental Diseases
  • Impact of Cultural Competency on Quality Patient Care
  • Mental Health and Well Being
