Workshop: Neonatal Resuscitation Course

Date/Time
22 Sep, Saturday
Venue
NUS, Centre for Translational Medicine (MD6), Level 3, Centre for Healthcare Simulation (CHS)
Description

The Neonatal Resusciation Course is targeted towards health care personnel dealing with newborns. It aims to equip the participants with evidence based knowledge and appropriate skill sets to perform optimally both at an individual level as well as part of a team while resuscitating a newborn. Newborns differ from infants in terms of their size and physiology; the disease processes affecting them are unique. Therefore newborn resuscitation not only has conceptual differences from resuscitation of infants and children, it also has several unique features. These are not addressed in adult and pediatric life support modules.

Workshop: Fundamentals of Simulation-Based Healthcare Education

Date/Time
27 Sep - 28 Sep, Thursday - Friday, 8:00 am - 5:00 pm
Venue
NUS, Centre for Translational Medicine (MD6), Level 3, Centre for Healthcare Simulation (CHS), #03-04
Description

This two-day workshop is designed to be interactive; consisting of short didactic sessions and hands-on practice of the essential skills needed for simulation-based healthcare education. Participants will work in groups to run their simulation scenarios, discuss the common pitfalls encountered, and receive feedback on these sessions. They will also have an opportunity to share their experiences and exchange ideas on integrating simulation-based learning into their existing curricula. This workshop is aimed at faculty who are interested in using simulation methodologies to enhance their curriculum.

13th Singapore Public Health & Occupational Medicine Conference

Date/Time
04 Oct - 05 Oct, Thursday - Friday, 8:30 am - 5:00 pm
Venue
Description

The demand for healthcare resources is rapidly rising in many countries. This is driven by ageing populations, increasing chronic disease burdens and in some cases, newer but more costly modalities of treatment. Sustainability in healthcare is now more crucial than ever as we strive to provide safe, quality and value-based care to our patients and the populations which we serve. 

The theme “Sustainable Health for All” highlights the urgency of building sustainability in the healthcare system and the conference will bring together thought leaders, researchers, clinicians and policymakers to discuss this pertinent challenge. We will explore several areas critical to achieving sustainability: Shifting from "healthcare to health" will examine how we can invest in upstream preventive care to keep our populations healthy and reduce costlier downstream care. Maximizing value will deliberate how we can maximize health outcomes against the cost of delivering the outcomes, moving away from the traditional model of optimizing health outcomes at all cost. Harnessing the 4th Industrial Revolution technologies will explore how innovations in medical technologies and rapid advancements in information and communications technology (ICT) can help improve healthcare sustainability.

The need to change the way we think about, organize and deliver healthcare is more pressing than ever. Join us at the 13th PHOM conference to learn how we can accelerate these changes.

Oon Chiew Seng Public Lecture: The Experience of Aging - What to Expect, How to Prepare, Making the Most of our Later Years

Date/Time
10 Oct, Wednesday, 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm
Venue
NUS, NUHS Tower Block, Level 1, Auditorium
Description

Speaker: Professor Lewis A. Lipsitz, MD, Professor of Medicine, Harvard Medical School

As a result of improvements in sanitation, nutrition, maternal and child health, medical care, antibiotics and vaccines for infectious disease, the world’s population is rapidly aging. In America, approximately 10,000 people are turning 70 every day. This unprecedented demographic shift is presenting enormous global social, economic, political, and health care challenges that will require advances in research, training, and policy to adequately address. Major medical issues in older adults include memory loss, impaired mobility, falls, pain, disability, and frailty, most of which are neglected in medical training and poorly understood by medical providers. Fortunately, many of these conditions are preventable through life-style changes, smoking cessation, a Mediterranean diet, physical and mental exercise, social engagement, and the control of hypertension and other cardiovascular risk factors. This lecture will review what we can expect as we experience the aging process and how we can remain healthy and productive in our later years.
