Close to 300 new Cuban-trained doctors are currently in the public health system even as moves are being made to improve the delivery of health care countrywide. And according to Chief Medical Officer (CMO), Dr Shamdeo Persaud, in the quest to ensure that these new doctors are competent to operate in the local system they, upon their return here, are exposed to a veryChief Medical Officer, Dr Shamdeo Persaudstrict 18-month programme.This programme is especially important to ascertain whether the fledging doctors are proficient enough to obtain their independent practicing license. Currently about 283 of them are placed at institutions across the country under supervised institutional registration, a state of affairs that obtains also to newly trained nurses and pharmacists, Dr Persaud disclosed. He insisted that all these health professionals must undergo a period of internships after completing their training before they are deemed ready for independent practice.According to the CMO, although it was anticipated that the full complement of doctors who had undergone training in Cuba would have been back in the system by now, there are a few who must complete some programmes in order to fulfil their graduation requirements.  “The few more are either completing courses they needed to and some have some specialised training to do; a few were selected in Cuba for training in health services management so even though they have completed the medical programme they have to remain to do that…some have completed but some are still to do so,” explained Dr Persaud.However, the CMO sought to emphasise that the inability of some medical students to successfully complete the programme on their first attempt is not worrisome since according to him, “every good training programme would have persons who need to get extra work in, in some specific areas.”Dr Persaud is nevertheless hopeful that all those in training will soon return so that the health sector could benefit from their expertise. Previously a total of 175 Cuban trained doctors were added to the system.The medical training in Cuba came as part of bilateral cooperation between Guyana and Cuba which should have allowed for some 500 individuals to be so trained.The CMO’s comments on the Cuban-trained doctors were forthcoming during an interview with this publication which saw him seeking to deflate reports that the quality of the medical personnel trained in Cuba are not on par with the training in other countries even or that accessed at the University of Guyana.  “Cuba has just a rigid evaluation programme as the University of Guyana, the University of the West Indies, Maryland University, Vanderbilt (University) or wherever; it is not a free for all…I can assure the public that the programme is just like any other training programme,” Dr Persaud firmly declared.In fact he insisted that the assessment that the Cuban-trained doctors undergo upon their return is identical to that which doctors trained elsewhere are expected to endure. “We feel this is a good way to, first of all, standardise their practice and secondly to give them the necessary skills that they may not have learned at their training institutions.”Training for the new doctors include: courses on Basic Life Support, Advanced Cardiac Life Support and according to Dr Persaud, each of them are required to undertake the Advanced Labour and Risk Management (ALARM) programme. The latter programme is intended to enable the doctors to be on alert for Maternal and Child Health cases so that they can spot early signs that can lead to complications and respond to those promptly.“Those kinds of skills building training are ongoing, and during the time we hope to rotate them to improve access; so we have set-up quite a complex network of supervision with both the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC),Cheap NFL Jerseys, the regional hospitals, district hospitals and the Regions so they are able to move easily between these areas providing services to the public but yet still obtaining their training and educational requirements,” Dr Persaud explained.He noted that even though these young doctors are tasked with rendering service in the primary health care arena, they are also dispatched to health centres and are placed at these locations for a defined period of time, under a strict protocol, which they are expected to follow without faltering.“And the feedback that I have gotten so far from the public has been very positive especially our elderly population, both men and women…and this is mainly because they don’t have to wait in long queues at hospitals anymore,Wholesale NFL Jerseys,” said Dr Persaud. With the addition of doctors at the various health facilities,Supply NFL Jerseys Factory, he is optimistic that the health seeking culture nation will drastically change.  “We really would like to see this change in the health seeking behaviour of the population; we would like all adults and even adolescents and children going to the health facilities to have regular screenings throughout the course of their lives. We all need to, at different stages of our life,Cheap Jerseys Free Shipping, have different checks and tests done,” noted Dr Persaud.He alluded to, for instance,China Soccer Jerseys, the supplement programmes, for pregnant mothers and children, whereby sprinkles are provided by health facilities which are designed to help ensure that they have access to vital micro-nutrients. And according to him, with the influx of the doctors, it is expected that the public would be able to easily access even more programmes offered by the public health sector.
