From the Sanford Scope:
As part of Stanford Emergency Medicine International (SEMI), School of Medicine faculty and students are actively involved in a variety of overseas projects aimed at advancing global emergency medical care through systems development, infrastructure expansion and educational innovations.
One such project is an ongoing initiative in Cambodia to develop video-based education modules for the management of common emergency complaints. SEMI co-directors Swaminatha Mahadevan, MD, and Matthew Strehlow, MD, have partnered with Center for Human Services, the non-profit arm of University Research Consortium, in Cambodia to develop these modules – but doing so requires learning more about the background of patients served by emergency departments at Cambodian hospitals and evaluating the effectiveness of current triage systems.
