Capacity Building

In April 2018 Therapeutic Guidelines hosted a visiting doctor from Argentina to participate in a two-week guideline development training course. Dr Mariscal was the eighth recipient of the TGL ‘Visiting Editor Fellowship’ since 2008. The training aims to equip visiting health professionals from low and middle-income countries with the skills needed to develop guidelines within their own countries to suit their local health context.

Dr Mariscal plans to incorporate training around the development and use of guidelines into the medical degree at the University of Mar del Plata, Argentina.
