This past November, Action on Sepsis and the Centre for Internal Child Health (CICH) at BC Children's Hospital brought together leading young researchers at the 2022 American Society for Tropical Medicine and Hygiene Annual Meeting to share their work developing and leveraging frugal digital technology and data-driven vulnerability prediction to improve care across different points of a critically-ill child’s journey.
Panelists described development and validation of risk prediction models, highlighting how such models can guide targeted, affordable interventions. Attendees had a chance to learn how practical and affordable digital technology equipped with clinical algorithms can support health workers with identifying, treating, and following-up high-risk children, improving outcomes within health facilities and at home, and the role of promising new host and pathogen biomarkers in enhancing the predictive capability of prognostic models.
