From Sade Adewale,Ondo.
Ondo State University of Medical Sciences Teaching Hospital Complex (UNIMEDTHC) has organised a four-day training for doctors and nurses working under the facility.
The Chief Medical Director of the complex, Dr. Oluwole Ige, stated this while playing host to a team of foreign medical experts from the United States of America, under the auspices of Sharing Hope Foundation, which was facilitated by the wife of the State Governor, Betty Anyanwu-Akeredolu.
He said the programme was designed to enhance clinical knowledge in Basic Life Support (BLS), Advanced Trauma Life Support (ATLS) and Update Course in Anesthesia and Critical Care.
Ige appreciated the team for its humanitarian gesture to the State and urged the UNIMEDTHC medical personnel to extend the knowledge gained from the training to other healthcare providers.
Speaking earlier, the team leader of Sharing Hope Foundation, Dr. Emeka Anyanwu, expressed his delight at the progress of the training, saying the training program has been a continuous exercise since 2019 in Ondo State.
According to Dr. Anyanwu, the goal of their medical visit is to impart knowledge and improve service in the area of critical care unit and emergency in the various hospitals.
He mentioned that in 2019 when they visited, the medical team donated equipment and medical consumables to the state for medical surgeries, saying they are donating again this year to celebrate 2020 world cancer day.
