With traditional training methods on hold due to ongoing COVID-19 restrictions, alternative ways of practical training were needed. Diamedica approached Optimum Biomedical to discuss potential partnership opportunities. Sean from Optimum Biomedical was due to deliver an 8-week program to Mercy Ships in Liberia and we decided it would be helpful to join up our training goals. Sean would deliver Glostavent® Anaesthesia Machine user training on behalf of Diamedica whilst he was in country, saving global travel during the challenging times of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Sean delivered 3 training sessions over 6 days, arming 18 delegates with full user, servicing, and maintenance training for the Glostavent® Helix Anaesthesia Machine. Trained healthcare providers will not only be able to use the equipment effectively in hospitals across Liberia, but also to train other doctors and healthcare providers on use of the equipment.
Sean said, “The delegates received the training very well and all passed the practical assessment and the written exam on the second day.”
Whilst one delegate said; “Having practical sessions instead of just theory is so important and it helped us all to better understand the machine”
We are grateful to Sean and the team at Optimum Biomedical for delivering important hands-on training to users. Although we have not been able to travel as extensively as we would wish over the past year, we continue to provide online training by our qualified engineers via zoom.
