Activity 2:
Inspiring Young Adults towards Healthier Living
In the afternoon, the Manakula Vinayagar Institute of Technology (MIT) witnessed a vibrant gathering of approximately 200 young adult students eager to listen to the discourse on obesity. Professor Sumitra, representing MIT, extended a warm welcome to the attendees, setting the stage for a session led by Dr. S. Girija, a Professor of General Medicine from Sri Manakula Vinayagar Medical College and Hospital. Dr. Girija shed light on the global prevalence of obesity, emphasizing its impact not only on individuals but also on society as a whole. Stressing the importance of healthy eating habits and regular physical activity, the speaker inspired the audience to adopt sustainable lifestyle changes.

The session culminated in a lively physical activity program led by Ms. Zen Kumsie, a seasoned physical fitness trainer. Through a dynamic blend of aerobics, cardio, and dance movements, students enthusiastically participated, experiencing firsthand the joy of physical exercise. The event concluded on a grateful note, with Dr. Sravya extending heartfelt thanks to all participants and contributors for their unwavering support towards promoting health and well-being.

Skills development programme “Enhancing IV cannulation technique”

Date: 1,2,3rd february 2024
Time: 01.30 pm to 04.00 pm
Venue: Simulation centre
Department: General Medicine

Skill enhancement for interns-2024 – IV cannulation technique. A skill enhancement activity, for interns was conducted by faculty of General Medicine on IV cannulation technique on 01.02.2024 to 03.02.2024 around 110 interns participated in the programme . A checklist for assessment was used to ensure that the interns are meeting the necessary criteria and performing the technique correctly. E-certificates were given to those who successfully completed the program

The following are some of the recommendations from the participants to enhance such programs:

Feedback

1. Regular Practice Sessions: Participants emphasized the need for regular practice sessions, both on mannequins and real patients, to build confidence and proficiency in skills like IV cannulation.

2. Incorporating more hands-on demonstrations and simulations, including videos can help interns better understand and retain the techniques taught.

3. Time Management: Some participants suggested allocating more time for assessment and practice, ensuring that interns have sufficient opportunity to master the skills being taught.

4. Diverse Skill Set: Consider adding other related procedures such as ascetic tapping, ABG, ECG, urinary catheterization, and tracheal intubation to future programs, broadening interns skill sets and preparedness for clinical practice.

5. Small Group Sizes: To facilitate better interaction and individualized attention, it may be beneficial to have smaller groups of interns for each instructor during training sessions.

6. Clear Explanation of Difficulties: Instructors should provide detailed explanations, especially regarding difficult aspects of procedures like IV cannulation, to help interns overcome challenges effectively.

7. Regular Program Updates: Interns expressed interest in participating in similar skill enhancement programs regularly, suggesting that such initiatives should be conducted frequently to continually reinforce and expand their skills.

Here is a breakdown of the responses:

1. Guidance by the Instructor

  • Adequate: -50
  • Excellent: -50
  • Low: =1

2. Self-Assessment on Cannulation Ability:
– 1 (Very Easy): 59
– 2: 21
– 3: 8
– 4: 10
– 5 (Very Difficult): 6

3. Suggestions for Assessing Skills:
– Responses varied widely, including suggestions for adding more procedures, increasing hands-on practice, providing more time for learning, and conducting assessments on real patients.
4. Recommendations for Such Programs:
– Responses included requests for more frequent programs, diverse skill sets, practical demonstrations, and adequate time management.
5. Number of Difficult Cannulations Encountered:
– The responses varied, with some indicating specific numbers and others providing qualitative descriptions. Based on this feedback, addressing any areas where guidance may have been lacking or where difficulties were encountered during cannulation can lead to more effective training outcomes.

International Women’s Day Celebration: Empowering Women in Leadership

On March 9, 2024, the Department of General Medicine organized a captivating talk show on women leadership to commemorate International Women’s Day. The event, was graced by esteemed senior lawyer with 35 years of professional experience, Adv.Vrinda Mohan from Puducherry.

Under the adept coordination of Dr. S. Girija, Professor of General Medicine, the talk show brought together a diverse group of women from various backgrounds and designations. With around 50 participants actively engaging in discussions, the event provided a platform for meaningful interaction and reflection.

The dialogue kicked off with the HOD elucidating the essence of leadership and its significance to women. Emphasizing the innate qualities of women as empathizers, good listeners, and communicators, the conversation navigated through intriguing questions: Are women inherently better leaders? What impediments hinder women from assuming leadership roles? How can women effectively balance home and work responsibilities?

Amidst the exchange of ideas, participants courageously shared personal anecdotes, shedding light on the adversities they had overcome. One such narrative highlighted the resilience of a woman who triumphed over abuse, emphasizing the transformative power of education in her journey to stability and empowerment.

Throughout the discussion, Mrs. Vrinda Mohan’s moderation proved invaluable. With her insightful interventions and personal anecdotes, she enriched the conversation, offering guidance and inspiration. She underscored the importance of breaking down barriers and fostering a supportive network among female colleagues, advocating for mentorship and holistic wellbeing.

As emotions ran high and tears flowed, the talk show became a poignant testament to the resilience and fortitude of women. Amidst shared struggles and triumphs, participants found solace and strength in unity, reaffirming their commitment to overcoming obstacles and forging ahead.

In her closing remarks, Mrs. Vrinda Mohan emphasized the essence of inclusive leadership, urging participants to cultivate empathy and foster collaboration. Expressing gratitude to all attendees for their invaluable contributions, the event concluded on a note of appreciation and empowerment.

In the journey towards gender equality and inclusive leadership, events like these serve as beacons of hope and catalysts for change, inspiring women to embrace their potential and redefine the contours of leadership in a rapidly evolving world.
