The first ever edition of our brand-new online training course ‘Fungal Infections in Paediatrics’ came to a close on 15th December 2022. We are delighted to report we had an impressive turnout, with more than 150 delegates from over 40 different nations across the world participating in the training.
There has been a paucity of teaching and training in medical mycology in general, and more specifically in paediatric medical curricula.
This year’s edition of our innovative training course “PentaTr@ining: HIV & other Congenital Infections” finally drew to a close at the end of September, and we are delighted to report it was a wonderful success! Our freshly updated programme provided an opportunity for doctors, nurses, medical students, researchers and other healthcare workers to sharpen their professional skills and deepen their knowledge on the treatment and care of children, young people and pregnant women living with HIV and other infectious diseases.
On September 19, 2022, we kicked off our exciting new online course, “Fungal Infections in Paediatrics” on our PentaTr@ining platform, with over 100 delegates logging in from across the world. The interactive course will run on our recently upgraded virtual learning platform, providing space for students and faculty to engage and collaboratively solve problems around delivering new and improved treatment options for fungal infections in neonates and children worldwide.
PentaTr@ining (formerly ‘Tr@inforPedHIV’) is a groundbreaking training platform for healthcare professionals caring for children, adolescents and pregnant women living with infectious diseases – with a particular focus on HIV and congenital infections. Unique at its inception in 2005, it was established in the framework of the partnership between Penta and the European Society for Paediatric Infectious Diseases (ESPID). The course was initially designed to address topics related to the treatment of children with HIV/AIDS in Western and Eastern Europe.
The Spanish language version of our online course “PentaTr@ining: HIV and other Congenital Infections” kicks off today! We look forward to welcoming over 100 participants for this year’s edition of our newly upgraded online training course.
Unique in its design and delivery, ‘PentaTr@ining’ is an innovative training platform which continues to develop and evolve in response to the changing needs of children, young people and pregnant women living with HIV and other congenital infections.
We are excited to announce that Dr. Steve Welch and the PentaTr@ining team have been awarded the ‘ESPID Distinguished Award for Education 2021’!
This award honours ESPID members who have excelled in education and training in paediatric infectious diseases and is offered in recognition of the innovative and highly effective work the PentaTr@ining team has carried out.
Steve, the PentaTr@ining lead, expressed his gratitude while accepting the award on behalf of the team during the ‘Best of ESPID’ session today,
It was a lifetime privilege and honour to host the ‘PentaTr@ining Uganda 2021′ course. This training had originally been planned for 2020, but that schedule got disrupted due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Nevertheless, we still received all the maximum support to make the course happen this year. This was a declaration of trust by Penta Foundation in the work we do as Joint Clinical Research Centre – Mbarara, and a demonstration of commitment by Penta to build capacity for excellence in research and paediatric care.
We are delighted to announce that registrations are now open for our online training course ‘PentaTr@ining 2020: HIV & other Congenital Infections‘.
Building on the success and reputation of the previous Tr@inforPedHIV course, for this year’s edition we have completely revamped and updated the training content and curriculum areas covered in order to deliver a new course centered around updates in a variety of different congenital infections.
