White Paper on Establishing Academic Department of Emergency Medicine in India

White Paper on Establishing Academic Department of Emergency Medicine in India
12-June-2014
Editors Desk




























ABSTRACT
Emergency medicine services and training in Emergency Medicine (EM) has developed to a large extent in developed countries but its establishment is far from optimal in developing countries. In India, Medical Council of India (MCI) has taken great steps by notifying EM as a separate specialty and so far 20 medical colleges have already initiated 3-year training program in EM. However, there has been shortage of trained faculty, and ambiguity regarding curriculum, rotation policy, infrastructure, teachers eligibility qualifications and scheme of examination.

Academic College of Emergency Experts in India (ACEE India) has been a powerful advocate for developing Academic EM in India. The ACEEs Education Development Committee (EDC) was created to chalk out guidelines for staffing, infrastructure, resources, curriculum, and training which may be of help to the MCI and the National Board of Examinations (NBE) to set standards for starting 3-year training program in EM and develop the departments of EM as centers of quality education, research, and treatment across India.

This paper has made an attempt to give recommendations so as to provide a uniform framework to the institutions, thus guiding them towards establishing an academic Department of EM for starting the 3-year training program in the specialty of EM.

White Paper on Developing Trauma Sciences and Injury Care in India

White Paper on Developing Trauma Sciences and Injury Care in India
12-June-2014
Editors Desk




























ABSTRACT
It is encouraging to see the much needed shift in the understanding and recognition of the concept of burden of disease in the context of traumatic injury. Equally important is understanding that the impact of trauma burden rivals that of non-traumatic morbidity.

Subsequently, this paradigm shift reinstates the appeal for timely interventions as the standard for management of traumatic emergencies. Emergency trauma care in India has been disorganized due to inadequate sensitivity toward patients affected by trauma as well as the haphazard, nonuniform acceptance of standardization as the norm. Some of the major hospitals across various regions in the country do have trauma care units, but even those lack protocols to ensure that all trauma cases are handled by those units, largely owing to lack of structured referral system.

As a first step to reform the state of trauma care in the country, a detailed overview is needed to gain insight into the prevailing reality. The objectives of this paper are to thus weave a foundation based on the statistical and qualitative burden of trauma in the country, the available infrastructure of trauma care centers equipped to deal with trauma, the need and scope of standardized protocols for intervention, and most importantly, the application of these in shaping educational initiatives in advancing emergency trauma care in the country.
