Comprehensive Healthcare Training Solutions for a Healthier World
A WHO report [No health Without A Workforce, 2014] estimates that the global deficit of skilled healthcare professionals (doctors, physicians and nurses) will be 12.9 million by 2035. Even today, 118 countries fall below the required threshold of doctor to patient ratio, in part explaining the healthcare challenges that our world faces today. Lack of skilled and trained healthcare staff is one of the leading causes for medical errors, accidental medical fatalities and lack of special aid.
Components of Comprehensive Healthcare Training
A good physician is worth a hundred specialists. There is a significant lack of knowledge among medical students regarding the typical signs and risk factors associated with serious medical conditions. A comprehensive healthcare training programme effectively reduces this shortcoming. Such a training programme addresses several key factors.
• Quick and Structured Patient Management Techniques – Training courses such as American Heart Association’s (AHA’s) Basic Life Support (BLS) and Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS), and Berkeley Health EDU’s (BHE’s) Essentials of Cardiac & Airway Resuscitation Skills (ECARS) and Infection Control Nurse Programme are directed towards handling common emergencies that require immediate attention.
• Simulation Training for Practical Knowledge – A lot of healthcare professionals report feeling lack of self-confidence when faced with a real-world crisis. Training programmes such as BHE’s High-Fidelity Simulation Workshop provide the pre-clinical experience in handling critical cases in near real-life situations.
• Soft Skills and Patient Satisfaction – As we move towards patient care and satisfaction, soft skills such as team-based care, effective communication, task-sharing and delegation, and working environment and human resources have become all the more important. Training programmes such as BHE’s Healing With Care for Front Office Staff, and Nurse Finishing School and Soft Skills Programme, are directed towards creating a solid foundation for patient satisfaction.
Raising the Bar for World Wellness
Many countries currently struggle with the most basic medical facilities. While world organisations actively pursue universal health coverage through their reform policies, they need adequate supplement from healthcare skilling institutes for sustained implementation. Training institutes such as Berkeley HealthEDU are contributing in this direction through their multi-faceted state-of-the-art healthcare training programmes. A healthier world can be achieved through better healthcare practitioners.
