'The Global PaedSurg study on congenital anomalies and action to improve neonatal surgical outcomes in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs) globally'
Naomi Wright is a Paediatric Surgery Registrar and Wellcome Trust Clinical PhD Fellow at King's Centre for Global Health and Health Partnerships, King's College London. She is the Founder and Chief Investigator for the Global PaedSurg and PaedSurg Africa Research Collaborations (@PaedsSurgeon, gobalpaedsurg.com), an organiser for the Global Initiative for Children's Surgery (@GICSurgery, www.globalchildrenssurgery.org) and a representative for the British Association of Paediatric Surgeons International Affairs Committee (@BAPS_IAC).
Miss Wright is a Paediatric Surgery StR at Oxford Children’s Hospital. In 2004/5, she undertook an intercalated BSc in International Health in The Gambia focused on improving newborn survival. In 2016, she completed an MSc in Global Health with Global Surgery at King's Centre for Global Health & Health Partnerships and a Royal College of Surgeons Research Fellowship. This involved establishing a collaboration of 220 surgeons and anaesthetists across sub-Saharan Africa to undertake the largest prospective cohort study of paediatric surgery outcomes in the region (published in BMJ Global Health).
From 2017 to 2021, she undertook a Wellcome Trust Clinical PhD in Global Health at King’s Centre for Global Health and Health Partnerships. This involved two main projects: 1) A multicentre, multinational, interventional study aimed at improving survival from gastroschisis in Ghana, Zambia, Malawi and Tanzania, and 2) a global prospective cohort study comparing the management and outcomes of neonates born with gastrointestinal congenital anomalies in low-, middle- and high-income countries (The Global PaedSurg study recently published in The Lancet).
The talk will be followed by an update from Dr Shobhana Nagraj and Mrs Grace Drury on the Oxford Global Surgery Course.
