The visiting WHO consultants in Male’ to conduct training of healthcare providers on dengue diagnosis and management held a special Continuing Medical Education (CME) session for the doctors and nurses of ADK hospital. This was organized with the support from CCHDC and WHO Male’ office. The high incidence of dengue cases in the Maldives and its associated mortality and morbidity gives constant reminders to us on the need for healthcare workers to be vigilant on the disease and be up to date on all aspects of dengue diagnosis and management. The session was found to be highly beneficial and with a huge support from both doctors and nurses.
This is part of the CME programme the hospital plans under its CME Policy, to start and continue on a regular basis helping professionals working in ADK Hospital retain the knowledge and skills they have, acquire new knowledge and develop and increase their skill.
In a fast changing and advancing profession, it is crucial that healthcare providers keep up with advances in medicine and with the changes in the delivery of care. It is equally important that they maintain the knowledge and skill they have gained and continuously work on acquiring new knowledge and skills. ADK Hospital is committed to provide patient-centred quality healthcare services and would continuously work on improving the standard of services provided in the hospital. Quality of services would largely depend on the knowledge, skill and commitment of the employees working in the hospital.
