Presentation on the morbidity and hospitalizations of COVID-19 over the past two years presented Dr. Baev to the third conference "With care for children"

The incidence and hospitalization  of COVID-19  in  children is highest in childhood and adolescent age. This was stated at the beginning  of his presentation By Dr Momchil Baev, President   of the Astra Forum Foundation,  during the Third  Pediatric Meeting “CHILDCARE”, organized by the Foundation  “Knowledge gives  life.”  He presented to over 300       doctors  from all over the  country  a presentation on “Communication with patients  to improve vaccination coverage in Bulgaria, scope with pediatric communication with patients for    covid-19 vaccination in the  5-18 year population.”

In it, Dr.    Baev emphasized the direct link between coronary infection rates and vaccination against  the virus. but the severity of the disease is significantly reduced.

The exhibition focused on childhood  morbidity and the administration of pediatric vaccines  in Bulgaria.   At several tens of thousands of  doses administered, there are only a few recorded side effects.  The latter are used as a  major argument in opposing  immunization in children.

The presentation presented the model of “Motivational Interview” as an effective approach  to overcoming   vaccination fears  in patients.  This model is   also  applicable in various other situations where people have subjective considerations about the trust they have towards their doctors.  Motivational interviewing  is a strong tool  that shows  effectiveness in increasing confidence  in vaccines and reducing mistrust.  The method is  also recommended by the WHO.

 The initiative for the Third Pediatric Meeting “With     Care for Children” is of the Department of Pediatrics of the University of Sofia,  together  with the Knowledge Foundation.  It was held between  12-15 May 2022, in Nessebar.

The aim of the scientific meeting was to bring together the leading  specialists in the different fields  of children’s  health.  Good practices and a multidisciplinary approach in pediatrics were the forum’s   leading focus.  The meeting is a successful extension of the previous two forums, and  the participants specialist doctors – pediatricians, neonatologists, general practitioners, graduates and phD students in pediatrics,  pharmacists and healthcare  professionals from  all over the country.
