International Day for Persons of Disability 2019 Programme at ICCONS, Shoranur, Kerala
I am happy to announce that we successfully organised a #Clubfoot Parental Awareness and Caregiving Programme at the Palakkad District Co-operative Hospital, #Palakkad, #Kerala on August 31st, 2019. This was done to organise parents into a self support group and to provide parents the necessary group counselling on #Ponseti Method of #Clubfoot treatment. @childortho @dreaswar
#clubfoot guide and interactive session for patents at #Palakkad Cooperative Hospital.
The program includes a lecture by me on Clubfoot for parents and a interaction with our Clubfoot Care Team , Orthosis Check, Doubts about casting, checking recurrence of deformity and general clarification on Clubfoot care. Parents will have an opportunity to interact with other parents exchange their experience about treatment, the issues and build a support community.
Cerebral Palsy is such a difficult disease to handle and treat for the health care professionals.
The treatment process needs to take the parents and family members along so that these children get optimal care. It’s important to reinforce on the parents and lift their morale throughout the course of long and arduous treatment.
I routinely arrange seminars and medical camps and arrange public events in association with groups serving these children to help them and keep caregiver morale high. It’s a fight, a relentless fight against Cerebral Palsy.
It never ceases to amaze and move me that the mother , however humble or rich , illiterate or well educated, they may be cares for the child and stays with child through thick and thin.
I think this retweet and re-poll is a fair question to ask when the #NMC bill has been passed and the Indian Medical Association which is supposedly formed to protect the rights of the practicing doctor (Modern Medicine in India) has asked Doctors all over India to strike work today
Has really the IMA been proactive with regards to NMC ?
Has it really shown a similar protest like the one whcih was witnessed when goons protected by the West Bengal CM beat up a doctor ?
Is indeed the doctor community itself aware of the NMC bill and what it contains ?
Has the striking doctors read the whole bill or is the whole thing just a blind leading the blind / coercion of professional aquaintance ?
I am surprised that in far away land, this poll that I chanced on asks similar questions about their medical association.
You can find the poll below…
The existential crisis, rudderless feeling one gets as one’s not sure what this body is, what’s to do with this and essentially how to map the world with this, or indeed whether to at all….. In the end one plays his/her part and vanishes but world exhumes the dead for post-truth – buries and burns it again. None is spared from this post-truth. Gods, Goddesses, great men and women are all queued up and exhumed for this ritual. What then one ……
