LAHORE: The provincial health department centre has directed health establishments to implement modern concepts of safe hospital waste management practices.
Director Provincial Health Development Center Dr.Sohail Saqlain said that PHDC was committed to providing quality training according to the needs of the health department in a structured as well as professional manner mainly in the areas which have become a challenge for health managers at their work places. PHDC will help capacity building of health human resources and in this regard, a viable strategy has been evolved to introduce various new techniques or combination of different methods of training to raise awareness among health managers across the province.
Dr. Sohail Saqlain further said that eventually such innovations would help discourage a monotonous type of lecturing instead of exposing the trainees to class room, interactive teaching sessions, questionnaire, videos, field visits, pre and post workshop etc will further help offer trainees a comprehensive understanding and ability to apply learnt professional management techniques to address such issues. He said that safe hospital waste management practices are of areas of complex and intricate nature which badly needed a detailed and comprehensive understanding as well as professional approach not to only ensure efficient and safe disposal of hospital waste but also train hospital managers as master trainers so that they could create a compressive hospital waste management program at their respective hospitals.
Dr Sohail said PHDC will conduct a two-day workshop on Safe Hospital Waste Management Practices and Scientific Exhibition here in city on June 11 at 1 Birdwood road. Secretary Health Punjab Dr. Ijaz Munir will be the chief guest on the inaugural session while leading medical experts will speak during the technical sessions.
