Practice makes one perfect. And, in medicine, the right kind of practice can save lives. Around 50 lakh Indians die every year due to lack of adequate medical knowledge. Experts say that this disturbingly high morbidity rate can be slashed down by almost 50% if healthcare professionals receive training in specialised courses focusing on treatment of critically ill and emergency care patients.
Specialised training programs in critical care can transform the Indian medical scenario. A study by Harvard University, USA, last year showed that the aforementioned 50 lakh deaths are due to medical errors, triggered mainly by lack of practical hands-on training among doctors and nurses while managing critical patients brought to the hospital.
Simulation is the future of medical education for improved healthcare delivery in India and the vast underserved regions across the world. At Safercare, we offer simulation based training to improve the skills and knowledge of healthcare professionals — doctors, nurses and paramedics — while handling medical emergencies. Medical professionals need to follow the right protocol for in a patient’s treatment, especially in critical situations, as it is often a matter of life and death. Simulation based training replicates real life scenarios, leading to reduced errors and quicker response times. Research shows that simulation based training can improve life-saving and resuscitation skills, teamwork, and address concerns about patient safety by reducing clinical errors. Medical institutes, as well as practicing medical professionals, need to opt for specialized training to ensure better patient outcomes and decreased morbidity rates. Simulation is the future of medical education for improved healthcare delivery in India and the vast underserved regions across the world.
One recurring complaint of patients is the lack of communication between doctors and related teams. All Safercare courses have a soft skills module, that focuses on a collaborative work ecosystem, where the collective efficiencies are harnessed for delivering the best possible care.
The Safercare Simulation Lab is a state-of-the-art facility, spread over 16,000 sq feet in the heart of Hyderabad, India. We are collaborating with world leaders in simulation and medical education like Laerdal of Norway, Alfred Health – Monash University in Australia, Global Health Alliance, UK, American Heart Association(AHA) and others. Safercare’s experienced and dedicated faculty deliver high quality training, while facilitating research through simulation.
Medical institutes, as well as already practicing medical professionals should consider training in specialized courses for a much better patient outcome. Specified training for doctors and nurses can lead to a decrease in the morbidity rate of patients.
