I choose this area because the nurses are the front-line of any health care centres. Although, doctors are life savers, but positively only with contribution of nurses. If the doctor saves life, the nurse helps in improving the physical and mental condition of the patient. I divided the program in four sections. In the first section I had given an introduction about HMD foundation and their mission. In the second section I explained the topic of Bio-waste Management, Needle stick injuries and Hand & Hygiene WHO reports in the World Health Report 2002, that of the 35 million health-care workers, 2 million experience percutaneous exposure to infectious diseases each year. It further notes that 37.6% of Hepatitis B, 39% of Hepatitis C and 4.4% of HIV/AIDS in Health-Care Workers around the world are due to needle stick injuries. Furthermore I discussed WHO recently reports it showed that no need of 70 percentage injection but Para medical staffs gave and most of time patient tendency they will be early recover take a shots of injection and after that explained side effects of reuse of syringe and focused on safe injection practice it does not harm the recipient, does not expose the health care worker to any risk and does not result in waste that is dangerous for others. In the second section I switched the topic to Mr. Amit. He explained the auto disabled syringe, safety cannula and provided demo of product. His work was admirable because he had shown an initial structure of syringes to recently syringes. He displayed the glass syringes and plastic body syringes and compared their quality. After that compared normal syringes and lock mechanism syringes and same thing was done in normal cannula and safety cannula. Mr, Amit section was attractive and enjoyable for paramedical staffs and they want we will come to their institution.
In the last section I cleared all the doubts related to program.
At the end of the program I requested the whole nursing students to please send this vital and necessary information to your colleagues and people.
HMD Foundation had conducted CME at COP Centre in Dr. Shroff charity eye hospital. During the time of program I covered two topics such as smart injection practice and hand wash. In the injection topic I showed demo of two syringes, normal, auto disable syringe, explained differentiate and how auto disabled syringes prevented disease Hepatitis B, C, HIV and blood borne disease. Most of the students were first time saw the AD and they needs to more training these products. In the hand wash topic, I showed video of best hand wash method of WHO after that I cleared all the doubts related to topic.
International girl child day was celebrated by HMD Foundation with the support of Aardhana Ngo. I choose Anemia topic because a large number of females are suffering from this problem and past report shows that India is ranked 170th in terms of anemia among women as per the Global Nutrition Report 2016 and 114th in terms of prevalence of under-five stunting, Health Minister J P Nadda. Anaemia is the most common nutritional deficiency disorder in the world. It is a major health problem that affects 25-50% of the population of the world and approximately 50% of pregnant women.
1 WHO has estimated that prevalence of anaemia in pregnant women is 14% in developed and 51% in developing countries and 65-75% in India?
2 India contributes to about 80% of the maternal deaths due to anaemia in South Asia. Anaemia in pregnancy accounts for one fifth of maternal deaths worldwide and is a major factor responsible for low birth weight. Prevalence of anaemia is higher among pregnant women and it persists in India despite of the availability of effective, low-cost interventions for prevention and treatment.
As a speaker of HMD Foundation, I focussed on prevention and healthy habits. I made participatory section and asked question related to diet. Everyone had surprised when I showed data related to anaemia suffered patient. At the end of cleared the sign and symptoms of anaemia. I thanked to HMD Foundation and Aardhana Ngo had provided opportunity for anaemia.
