Pediatric health care innovations presented by Children's at World Health Care Congress Middle East

During this week's World Health Care Congress Middle East, Children’s National held a special pediatric session featuring best practices in several key areas of children’s health that will help eliminate unnecessary complex procedures and reduce pain for children. Attendees included leaders in clinical care and policy development from the across the Middle East and Gulf region.The topics were selected based on requests from regional physicians, who were seeking more information about these subjects, including: 
    
    Dr. Atabaki presents research to regional
    physicians about assessing traumatic
    brain injury in children.
    
  • More precise and effective diagnosis of traumatic head injury, by Shireen Atabaki, MD, MPH, a pediatric emergency medicine specialist and director of Medical Student Education in the Division of Emergency Medicine at Children’s National.
  • The reduction of preventable pain during and after surgery through the use of advanced minimally invasive surgical approaches tailored for children, by Craig A. Peters, MD, division chief of Surgical Innovation, Technology, and Translation at Children’s National, and lead of the Innovation and Education Initiative at the Sheikh Zayed Institute.
  • The development of new integrated tools to diagnose, treat, and manage ongoing pain in children, by Julia Finkel, MD, associate division chief of Anesthesiology and Pain Medicine and lead investigator of the Pain Medicine Initiative at the Sheikh Zayed Institute.
Dr. Finkel demonstrates the pain algometer
to reporters in Abu Dhabi.
Drs. Finkel and Peters also had a little time to spend with the Abu Dhabi media to talk about the latest work of the Sheikh Zayed Institute in pain medicine and minimally invasive surgery. As this work is largely made possible by the historic gift from the government of Abu Dhabi on behalf of the people, there was much excitement and curiosity from the local media about the institute's recent and upcoming developments.
