Coronavirus: Tata Trusts partners with Christian Medical College and CIHS for online training of staff to manage COVID-19

Tata Trusts On Tuesday said, “It has partnered with Christian Medical College Vellore and Care Institute of Health Sciences (CIHS), Hyderabad along with Tata Group to assist their healthcare professionals to augment skills in critical care in COVID-19 management through online training.”

In a statement issued, Tata Trusts said, “22-hour free online training for medical professionals on COVID-19 critical care has been curated, which is meant for specific staff chosen by identified hospitals.”

“Tata Trusts believes that ICU physicians and intensivists, specialized in critical care management, will require the support of a wider cohort of doctors, nurses, and paramedical staff to treat COVID-19 patients. The training programs intend to meet this need by acquainting non-ICU professionals with the fundamental principles and practices of critical care,” the statement added.

For Limited Time

Adding to the statement, Tata Trusts said, “The training includes essentials of interventions and procedures in ICUs, the orientation of critical care skills like airway management and ventilator management, and how to triage a criticality as mild, moderate or severe and refer cases to appropriate facilities.”

“The program will also cover essentials of managing variegated facilities for COVID-19 management, such as isolation centers, quarantine centers, and management of service areas for patients with mild illness,” Tata Trusts said.
