254 million people worldwide are visually impaired or blind, with 90% of visually impaired people living in resource poor countries. 75% of sight limiting disease is preventable or treatable, and treatments such as cataract surgery are amongst the most cost-effective medical interventions. This resource, filmed in Uganda and Tanzania, shows you how to assess eye patients and treat common eye diseases.
21.8 million people attend A&E departments in the UK each year, many with minor injuries (broken bones, lacerations (cuts), soft-tissue (muscle and joint) injuries) which can lead to scarring and disability if not treated correctly. In this resource, you will learn to diagnose and treat these conditions.
ENT problems are common, accounting for around 25% of GP consultations in the UK, and a large number of presentations to hospital. Most health professionals receive only brief training in ENT, making it difficult for them to gain knowledge and skills. In this resource, you will learn how to assess common patients with ENT problems and test your skills.

This is a draft version of our multimedia learning materials on Caring for Sick Children In the Community. These materials are in DRAFT form at present, awaiting expert review. Therefore, they are only available to authors/administrators and should not be used for educational purposes at this time.
World Medical Education has joined with international partners, including World Health Organisation, UNICEF and Save the Children, and colleagues at UCL Institute of Child Health to deliver multimedia training for community health workers in Malawi.
We believe multimedia education will make a fundamental difference to the care of children and adults worldwide.
Working in partnership with centres in Africa and South East Asia, our projects are tailored to meet global health priorities for health workers in resource poor countries, as well as in other countries such as the UK.
Our aim is that health workers, wherever they are in the world, will have open-access, state of the art multimedia education.LEARN MORE
