What will this webinar cover?
Children represent approximately 40% of all refugees globally, and about 10–15% of refugee children have significant medical conditions. Resettlement best practices for supporting children across the migration continuum—while the child is still overseas, while en route, and once in the United States—are different than those geared toward adults. In this webinar, we will address the unique considerations for serving newcomer children with significant medical conditions, including the intersection of multiple medical diagnoses, supporting children’s families, and communicating across the migration continuum. Participants will also have the opportunity to learn from specific case examples of children with complex medical conditions.
Is this webinar for me?
This webinar is designed for frontline and management staff of organizations serving refugees and newcomers, particularly for staff responsible for or interested in health and wellness programming. Staff with all levels of health knowledge are welcome; you do not have to be a health expert to participate.
Why should I participate?
After participating in this 90-minute session, you will be able to:
Describe the overseas medical examination and ongoing monitoring of children with significant medical conditions before resettlement, including transport to the U.S. and recognize ways resettlement agencies and public health organizations serve children with significant medical conditions
