Respiratory Infections, including Covid

Respiratory Infections, including Covid

This is the most common morbidity in our moderate, sea climate; especially in young children. Weather influences but also genetic factors such as allergies, act on our susceptibility. Asthma has been increasing steadily over the last decades. Which factors play a role here? Annually many people die of the flu, which is transmitted by air. Also, chronic diseases such as COPD, and cancer, will be addressed, as well as the current ‘flu’, the corona epidemic.

Vaccinations -WM

Vaccinations -WM

Vaccinations have been developed to eradicate common childhood infectious diseases. A major question is: what was their real effect in a society that also improved in the last century our hygiene, nutrition and housing quality? This requires a long-term historical analysis. The current debate centres around the safety of vaccines. What precautions may need to be taken to provide a safe intervention balanced with the risks of the infection itself? And what is the role of informed consent and parental attitudes about exerting the UN human right of ‘having the health care of choice’? Also, the current potential of science to identify risk groups for vaccination adverse reactions will be presented.

Paediatrics part 2: Adolescence-WM

Paediatrics part 2: Adolescence. In many ways, the ‘jump’ or growth-spurt to autonomy by adolescents poses challenges for both themselves and their parents and teachers.  Which are the processes in their mental and physical development which drive these ‘jumps’? And which factors make them stronger and also more vulnerable than in the years of childhood? And how they can be guided in dialogue in their development towards adulthood? Participants are invited to present cases that provided questions and answers to these young patients. In an active participating context, they will be discussed, so we can learn all from each other.
