Understanding & Working with Infectious & Epidemic Diseases of Childhood

Join Will for an exploration of common infectious and epidemic diseases of childhood – some identified by their known etiologic agents, and some known more as clinical syndromes.  We’ll look at descriptions of Respiratory Syncytial Virus (RSV); Croup; Bronchiolitis; Infectious Diarrheas including Rotoviral Diarrhea; Chickenpox; Pertussis (Whooping Cough); Measles; Mumps; group A beta-hemolytic strep infections and their sequellae including scarlet fever and rheumatic fever; and largely for historical purposes, at smallpox, diphtheria and polio. We’ll address homeopathic management, including acute treatment and short-term homeoprophylaxis, conventional management including immunization/vaccination, and will address those historical and contemporary interventions which have contributed & may continue to contribute to reductions in morbidity & mortality of these diseases.

Note – this course is intended for the serious practitioner or student of homeopathy (at any level of study).  It is not intended to be a forum to debate the legitamacy of homeopathy as a medical discipline (tho we will discuss interventions from an evidence-based perpective), and should not be considered to substitute for a personal relationship or direct conversations with a health-care provider.

This course consists of the video recordings of 6 live webinar sessions, originally aired 14.April-19.May 2015.    Enrollment provides 6 months’ access to all course materials, including recordings of the live sessions, handouts, online quizzes for review & documentation of participation, and an instructor-moderated online discussion forum.
