Asian Research & Training Institute for Skill Transfer (ARTIST) has taken a huge leap by providing a packaged training programme through digital platform and leading doctors from Karnataka attended the first ever such programme in state. Another team of doctors and nurses connected to the class digitally from Mumbai and with ECHO team in Delhi.
ARTIST vision is to collaborate with industry experts and train the frontline healthcare providers in ObGyn through skill transfer. In this direction it has combined its initiatives Manyata, Parivarthan (#WhoDecides) and Diabetes in Pregnancy in the training module.
Speaking about collaborating with Project ECHO Zoom for the Manyata sessions, National Convener of Manyata, Dr. Hema Divakar said, “Divakars Speciality Hospital is the first ever Manyata centre in Karnataka, and hopes to introduce digital platform for training teams from private sector providers pan Karnataka and beyond. The ECHO Zoom platform eliminates need to travel every month for the training. Healthcare providers can train at their centres with faster turnaround time. We are aiming to certify 100 hospitals for Manyata in Karnataka in the next one year.”
“Having seen the ground realities in rural India, where there are no specialists available, I’m all keen on supporting the initiative to skill frontline providers and to save lives,“ said Dr. M. G. Hiremath, Vice President, FOGSI and Head of ObGyn, KLE Belagavi.
