Teaching Diagnosis and Treatment of Acute Viral Hepatitis in Children to Interns
The objective of the research was to improve interns’ knowledge of the etiopathogenesis, clinical and paraclinical diagnosis, current methods of treatment and prevention of viral hepatitis in children.
Infectious diseases are unfortunately very dangerous due to their severe clinical course, often unpredictable clinical symptoms and treatment results. This pathology remains one of the most common causes of death among children. Pathology of the liver and biliary tract in childhood is quite common; it is characterized by prolonged clinical course continuing into adulthood. The article describes the experience of teaching problems of diagnosis, treatment and prevention of viral hepatitis in children to pediatric interns during the cycle of lectures “Children’s Infectious Diseases”. During practical training of interns special attention is paid to etiology, clinical and laboratory diagnosis, treatment and prevention of various types of viral hepatitis. In particular, significant attention is given to the prevention of viral hepatitis in childhood. For this purpose educational learning material was developed at the Department.
