Improved access to neonatal care has lead to increased survival of infants who suffer perinatal complications and genetic/congenital anomalies. These infants are at high medical, nutritional and developmental risk. Partners in Rwanda are piloting a Pediatric Developmental clinic to provide medical care, nutritional support, and early childhood developmental services to this populations. There are several potential student projects that could include assessing outcomes in this population as well as assessing impact of the clinical and/or developmental interventions.

Children with special health care needs (CSHCN) have improved outcomes when receiving health care that is coordinated and family centered as part of a medical home. National surveys indicate that minority CSHCN are less likely to recieve family centered care. A Boston Children's Hospital community health center serving a largely minority population is implementing a medical home project for CSHCN. A student project could involve a mixed methods study of barriers to family centered care reported by patients and by providers. A longer project could include an intervention to address these barriers with a follow up assessment of efficacy.

Increased access to newborn resuscitation and specialized care for low birth weight and preterm newborns has contributed to increased newborn survival in low resource global settings. Yet little is known about longer term clinical and neurodevelopmental outcomes in these infants. In Rwanda, Partners in Health is establishing a follow up program for these infants, as well as infants with other neurodevelopmental and congenital conditions, in their non communicable disease program. Clinicians will be following baseline health outcomes including growth, clinical complications, and developmental outcomes as well as monitoring the impact of implementation of clinical care guidelines. There are opportunities for student involvement, with specific projects dependent on the skills and interest of the student as well as the timing of the proposed work.
