Aug-29(Wed) Sangha Teleconference

Post Disaster and Primary Care in Developing Countries

The basic commonality in both post disaster scenarios and primary/specialty care in developing countries is the lack of infrastructure and the need for continuous training when the initial acute disaster teams depart. Telemedicine affords the luxury of both basic and sophisticated learning and can evolve with the needs of the area. We will be highlighting a few key areas to address post disaster management and perhaps even more importantly building of infrastructure to address chronic and preventable disease.

Dr. Michael Simon will be showing a laporoscopic nephrectomy and will be discussing Urologic priorities in both disaster recovery and primary care. Training in performing preventive care and screening in developing countries is essential for all countries.

 

Dr. Ana Tamayo is a Gynecologist who strongly believes that there is an alarming lack of screening services and skills in Women’s health, especially screening for cancer. She will be demonstrating a cervical conization (LEEP) and hysteroscopic endometrial ablation. She will also be focusing her talk on colposcopy and cervical cancer screening

.

 

Art Therapy in Developing Countries and in Post Disaster Zones

Dr. Gaelynn P. Wolf Bordonaro, ATR
Emporia State University
Psychology and Special Education
Art Therapy Program

Dr. Wolf Bordonaro, along with a team from Burapha University, Dr. Sachan Puapan and Dr. Then Lertsiri, will introduce the field and practice of art therapy. Medical intervention models increasingly recognize the significance of both the physical and mental health of clients; the non-verbal symbol systems inherent in art therapy make it ideal for addressing psychosocial issues within cross-cultural contexts and across language barriers. Panel attendees will learn how professional art therapy services can play a significant role in providing psychosocial assessment and intervention within the infrastructure of medical care delivery systems.

.

 

TATA Memorial Hospital has been a leader in telemedicine in India and has been pushing aggressively for increased bandwidth for live interaction to promote teaching and consultation. The team will discuss their experiences and needs.

 

Aug-30(Thr) 9:00-10:30 Session 1: Network and technology update for medical activity

1. Update in CSTNET (Jiangning Chen/CSTNET/CN)

 

2. GEANT2 (West David/TEIN2/EU)

The talk will profile DANTE and the current GEANT2 network, serving the European research and education community and its interconnections with other regional R & E networks.

 

 

 

3. The Internet2 network: Support for the healthcare and health sciences community

Abstract:  This presentation will focus on Health Science drivers and applications that require or take advantage of advanced networking resources such as Internet2.  It addresses the way in which Internet2 is working with the health sciences and healthcare community to capitalize on the advanced networking and related capabilities in support of research, teaching/learning and clinical care activities. The talk will then focus on efforts to extend connectivity to rural healthcare clinics and other related topics.

4. Introducing KAREN
Mark Cordy
Operations Manager
Research and Education Advanced Network New Zealand.

New Zealand’s advanced research and education network is called KAREN, short for Kiwi Advanced Research and Education Network. KAREN is operated by a government funded company, REANNZ; the Research and Education Advanced Network New Zealand. This small company was set up in 2006 to establish, own and operate a high-speed telecommunications network for New Zealand’s research and education sectors.
KAREN went live last year in December and currently has 18 members including our 8 Universities, and 9 research organisations and the National Library of New Zealand. Our aim is to extend this membership to include all of New Zealand's schools, polytechnics, libraries, museums, private research institutes and private sector partners engaging in research and education activity.
Two of our universities have medical schools, University of Auckland and Otago University. Each of these universities has a number of regionally based clinical schools. We are very much at the beginning stages of building capability across our member organisations to fully utilize their advanced network connectivity. Hosting the 26th APAN meeting in Queenstown, New Zealand, in August 2008 will provide an excellent opportunity for us to connect our medical researchers with international research being conducted and demonstrated at APAN meetings.

5. Conference XP (Andrew/ ANU/AU)

The Medical WG has been successfully using the DVTS (Digital Video Transport System) software to conduct collaborative events. This presentation examines the scalability of the existing system, how the use of multicast can assist and describes the use of alternative collaboration tools (Access Grid and Microsoft Conference XP).

 

 

6. Report of medical case study using uncompressed HD stream and Discussion of new medical case study style

Koji OKAMURA (Kyushu University)

In this presentation, tele-medical application with uncompressed HD streaming will be reported. In this report, the technical issues for supporting un-compressed HD stream to live surgery and operation issues are focus on. And as the new topics, future style of tele-medical system will be introduced. Now the author and his colleague try to make standard for generic tele-medical system and this standard surely helps future tele-medical activities. The author will call for cooperation for this standardization activity.
