How do you access pediatric care in Sweden and what does that include? Does it cost you anything and where do you find your local emergency room?
What is the difference between your kid’s BVC (Barnvårdcentral) and a Barnläkare? Who deals with what?
It’s absolutely true what they say, when a child is choking they make no noise at all…what would you do.
In our inaugural episode of “Ask the Doctor” we introduce you to Dr James… and we talk about seasonal ailments, preschool bugs and your questions that you sent in!
Doctor James is back! In November’s ‘Ask the Doctor’ podcast we tackle RS Virus, Flu in small kids, prevention of seasonal bugs and chat about the hierarchy of the Swedish healthcare system for kids.
Our 17th episode and our third Barnakuten with Dr James. The Swedish vaccine schedule and questions about vaccinations in Sweden are one of the most searched for topics on the Littlebearabroad website. In today’s episode we talk about the Swedish vaccine schedule, the recent outbreak of Measles in the south of Sweden, the increasing number of people choosing not vaccinating their children in Sweden and what that means for the rest of us. Of course, we talked about much more, as we do, but we had plenty to say on this topic.
***TRIGGER WARNING*** ANYONE PHOBIC TO PARASITES OR BAD SOUND… we recorded this episode in the home of Dr James, had a great in depth chat about parasites in Sweden and at Förskola… and then realised that the mic had been on the wrong setting. So, loath to record again and miss all the good stuff. We hope you really forgive us! We’re on a steep learning curve with this new piece of equipment. Enjoy and listen to the end to find out what the format of future episodes are going to be like!
