The BeyHealth Masterclass lecture series delivers a broad curriculum of accredited high quality continuing medical education programmes aimed primarily at developing specific clinical and leadership competencies amongst a new generation of medical and allied health professionals operating at the 'coal-face' of public and private sector clinical practice in local communities and healthcare delivery institutions throughout Africa.
The Masterclass programme is designed to promote the ideals of lifelong learning, continuing medical education and evidence-based clinical practice across a diverse range of clinical and non-clinical disciplines relevant to the provision of community health care and ancillary health services sector wide.
The programme's special interest conferences and targeted continuing medical education seminars are designed to encourage useful professional networking and a culture of accountability, ethical practice and good clinical governance throughout public and private sector healthcare practice.
BeyHealth begins its 2016/17 educational season with it's long-awaited "Mastering series". The Mastering Asthma Management series is an Independent Medical Education (IME) programme delivered in association with GSK.
Asthma is a chronic, recurrent disease of the respiratory tract characterised by narrowing of inflamed air passages and often resulting in severe
“attacks” of prolonged breathlessness and wheezing. The condition may affect children and adults of any age, and the age and severity of presentation may depend on a variety of individual and environmental factors.
The Independent Medical Education (IME) programme on Asthma management will equip healthcare professionals with the practical knowledge and skill necessary to recognise and treat Asthma as a chronic illness. The course will provide “hands-on” and theoretical training in evidence-based methods of treating Asthma in both the short and longer term.
Attendance at the course is free. The programme will be held as a series of one-day educational events in a variety of locations between the 10th of November 2016 and the 31st of March 2017. Registration will be administered on a "first come-first served" basis. Book your place now!
