International Medical Corps Training Manual

This Manual does not intend to supersede local or national healthcare systems or protocols, but to provide an adjunct in an emergency when, as often happens, the perfect may be the enemy of the good.

UNIT ELEVEN: Gynecology and Obstetrics An overview of the area of medicine that addresses women's health-especially the health of reproductive organs-including the normal delivery of infants and possible complications. This Manual provides a resource for the training of field medics and community health workers who serve in under-resourced areas during conflicts or disasters. It targets those with a basic educational background and little or no prior medical education and, in conjunction with an intensive 4-8 week training program, will allow medics to diagnose and treat the most common 90% of illnesses and traumas. Based on a "Systems" approach (rather than symptom or specific disease orientation), the Manual covers basic anatomy and physiology and then focuses on the symptoms, physical findings, natural history, and differential diagnoses of the illnesses and injuries most likely to be encountered by health workers in the field. Treatment protocols are outlined, using those medications and materials likely to be found in under-resourced environments, including the generic medications of the WHO Essential Drugs List. The purpose is to train field health workers quickly and give them the skills to treat the majority of wounded and ill in situations when whatever previous health care system there may have been is overwhelmed. Developing capacity and self-reliance by training persons from affected areas empowers individuals and communities - even those displaced from their homes - to regain control of their lives and destinies. This is the foundation of emergency humanitarian assistance. This Manual is also meant to be carried into the field as a ready reference for field health workers including trauma medics and community health workers as well as more highly trained medical personnel who may happen to find themselves practicing out of their areas of expertise. This could include national and international physicians, paraprofessionals, and nurses responding to a humanitarian emergency. This Manual does not intend to supersede local or national healthcare systems or protocols, but to provide an adjunct in an emergency when, as often happens, the perfect may be the enemy of the good.

The Humanitarian Emergency Settings Perceived Needs Scale (HESPER) provides a quick, scientifically robust way of assessing the perceived serious needs of people affected by large-scale humanitarian emergencies, such as war, conflict or major natural disaster. Perceived needs are needs which are felt or expressed by people themselves and are problem areas with which they would like help. The HESPER Scale assesses a wide range of social, psychological and physical problem areas. However, it does not provide an answer as to whether, or how to, offer help. It simply identifies those serious problems that are common in a population. These problems should then be assessed and addressed in more detail. The HESPER Scale was developed by the World Health Organization and King's College London in order to fill several gaps in the humanitarian field. It enables needs assessments to be based directly on the views of people affected by humanitarian emergencies, and provides a more accurate picture of the serious problems with which the overall emergency-affected population wants help. This manual includes the HESPER Scale, as well as a detailed explanation of how to use the HESPER Scale, and how to organize, analyze and report on a HESPER survey.
