WHO Integrated Management of Childhood Illness (IMCI) Handbook (2005)
The World Health Organization (WHO) Integrated Management of Childhood Illness (IMCI) Handbook (2005).
From the WHO website (http://www.who.int/child_adolescent_health/documents/9241546441/en/index.html):
The IMCI model handbook provides a detailed explanation of the IMCI case management guidelines. It is organized into seven main parts: overview of the IMCI process; assess and classify the sick child age 2 months up to 5 years; assess and classify the sick young infant age 1 week up to 2 months; identify treatment; treat the sick child or the sick young infant; communicate and counsel; and give follow-up care.
Teaching institutions are advised to adapt the handbook in two ways:
* to ensure that all text, charts and illustrations are consistent with nationally-adapted IMCI clinical guidelines, and
* to ensure that its content and format corresponds to the teaching approach used by the institution.
