Training programs to disseminate telemedicine across the beneficiary countries

 

July 2017 – December 2018


Target Participants:

Healthcare professionals, such as hospital/REN engineers, healthcare providers, medical students, doctors etc.from beneficiary countries.

 

Lead organisation

Kyushu University Hospital, Japan 

 

Objective: 


- To provide dedicated technical training for local engineers in hospitals, in areas such as internet management and audio-visual handling. 

- To organize a “Train-the-trainer” program with engineers attending intensive programs at the Telemedicine Development Center of Asia (TEMDEC)  

  at Kyushu University Hospital, Japan. 

- To organize an annual symposium/workshop where a team of medical and engineering staff get together to share information on various programs,  

  explore medical needs, identify current problems, and improve technical conditions. 


Approach:

As a part of TEIN4, the telemedicine project motivated relevant initiatives in the beneficiary countries. However, full training and coverage of  

telemedicine in these countries cannot be achieved in such a short time. Extending this project further is therefore essential for the countries  

to consolidate their capabilitities. 

 

Program:

The whole project consists of two types of programs : a)Training of hospital engineers; b)Symposium/workshop
