In a series of training events, KIC Health and Medical Sciences Department has trained the Healthcare Professionals of SEHA, with the essential skills in Respiratory Care, as a part of National preparedness to combat the COVID 19 Pandemic.
More than 150 SEHA affiliated Physicians, Nurses, and Allied health professionals were trained to acquire the necessary Respiratory Care skills. The program aimed to prepare the participants to support Respiratory Therapists in the Intensive Care units (ICUs). The series of two-day workshops provided rigorous, interactive, and hands-on intensive care training to the delegates according to their scope of practice in ICUs. The post-training evaluation included theory exams and competency-based assessments to test and award them with CME accredited Certification.
KIC has pioneered the introduction of a Bachelor of Science in Respiratory Care (BSRC) program in the UAE. The rapidly growing health care sector and unexpected pandemic crisis, like COVID-19, have highlighted the crucial need for highly qualified and skilled Respiratory Care Specialists. The BSRC program at KIC aims to prepare its graduates to be competent and resourceful in meeting the requirements of the booming healthcare industry and thereby to stand high as patient advocates.
