Gomati District Gears up Training and Capacity Buildings

Gomati District Health Administration is gearing up all kinds of training and capacity building programmes to impart skill and capacity to health workers for betterment of their services in health facility and community. The District is organizing numbers of training and capacity building programmes of Skill Birth Attendant, Training for Staff Nurses, Home Based New Born Care for Multi Purpose Workers and Supply Chain Management System for identified health personnel.

Now the District has identified 35 health personnel from the rank of HMIS Assistant, Pharmacist and Multi Purpose Workers who are either handling the system or assisting to manage the system from different health institutions to impart training being held on 19th and 20th December at District NIC Computer Data Centre at Gomati District Administration Office Complex. After the training District will be able to run the system smoothly, said Dr. Niru Mohan Jamatia, District Chief Medical Officer.

District has also completed first batch of Skill Birth Attendant Training to impart and skill to four staff nurses which enable them to undertake institutional delivery as per guidelines in their respective health institution of District Hospital, Amarpur SDH, Silachari and Kakraban PHC. Apart from assigned & normal courses of training for the span of 21 days of each batch we have newly applied the concept of Team Training as per knowledge and behavioural changes of staff nurses. Quoting the new study of Rice University of John Hopkins University School of Medicine, Dr. Roy said these concepts during training are helping to teach individuals how to better communicate, behave, cooperate and resolve conflicts in work place settings to provide service smoothly which may also help to reduce patient’s mortality also.

Home Based New Born Care Training programmes have been introduced for all 208 Multi Purpose Workers of the District to strengthen support, supervision and monitoring of HBNC. HBNC is a useful tool of ASHA who visits houses of mothers and new born children to provide quality and primary Post Natal and new born care of health. As such, MPWs need to know the nitty-gritty of the programme so that they would further extend support to ASHA including supervising and monitoring the ASHA under their jurisdiction, said Dr. Bhaskar Debnath one of District Trainers.
