GUWAHATI, Feb 10 - GVK EMRI in collaboration with Stanford University School of Medicine organised a CME programme on Tuesday.
Renowned emergency physician of Stanford University School of Medicine, USA, Dr Jennifer A Newberry was the speaker and resource person.
The CME covered the topics ‘Eclampsia/Preeclampsia, Pulmonary Embolus & cardiac Resuscitation, Approach to Trauma in Pregnancy & Post Partum haemorrhage and use of NASG.’
Dr Newberry is Co-Medical Director, Peninisula Family Advocacy Programmed, a medical legal partnership. She is an instructor in the Department of Emergency Medicine, Stanford University School of Medicine, USA.
“The aim of the CME programme was to enhance knowledge and skills in synchronisation with the upgrading of current advancement in the field of emergency medicine amongst general duty doctors to manage common emergency conditions in limited resource settings. The doctors serving in public and private health institutions should be competent enough to manage common day-to-day emergencies,” a GVK EMRI official said.
