As part of its continuing medical education (CME) 'BE' series, Hinduja Healthcare Surgical (HHS) held seminars last month on advances made in ENT treatment, Ophthalmology and Cardiology.
Dr Samir Bhargava, Dr Sanjay Bhatia and Dr Narayan Jayashankar from the ENT department spoke on the advances made in ENT practice. Speaking on their individual areas of expertise and experience, the panel provided an overview of the advances made in ENT practice. For the benefit of the over 75 general practitioners (GPs) who attended the session, the doctors clearly spelt out what could be handled at the GP clinic and when the cases needed to be forwarded for further evaluation to the ENT consultant / hospital. Over a period of an hour, the panel doctors answered queries and cleared individual doubts from the audience, to ensure a positive take home that would add value to the GP in his daily practice.
In another seminar, nearly 60 GPs assembled at HHS to hear what they could "see". The CME on Ophthalmology provided an ideal platform all doctors to discuss the recent advances in Ophthalmology. Dr Deepak Sadarangani, Dr Rahul Navalkar and Dr Ashwin Sainani spoke on their topics of specialisation and responded to queries.
Finally, cardiologists Dr Sudhir Vaishnav and Dr Haresh Mehta addressed nearly 160 doctors on the recent trends in Cardiology. The seminar was in association with the Indian Medical Association (IMA) held at IMA Hall in Juhu, Mumbai. The two interventional cardiologists dealt with topics related to the basic understanding of heart related issues, the common drugs to be prescribed in the GP clinic when confronted with complains of hypertension, chest pain and other indicative symptoms of cardiac health, to the decision of referring the patient to the cardiologist. The interaction ensured a qualitative take home that could be included in their daily practice.
