Srinagar, Jul 17 (KNS):
KASHMIR, Kashmiri American Society of Healthcare, Medical Education and Research, is a nonprofit registered in the kingdom of New York in 2016. It is a member-based corporation of physicians and allied healthcare employees of the Kashmiri foundation in North America. The imaginative and prescient provides a platform for those specialists to the community, educate, mentor, and especially to offer lower back to their local Kashmir inside the healthcare sector.
We had been operational for the beyond three years, with our regulatory and structural duties met inside the Valley as nicely.
Our most ambitious challenge for 2019 is the EMERGENCY MEDICAL SERVICES Project. For this, we’ve tied up with SAVE Heart Kashmir crew alongside our neighborhood companion HELP Foundation. This provider is set to begin to cease in July 2019. We start it as a pilot application in Srinagar with two vital care ambulances staffed by paramedics/EMT personnel. Junior docs may staff the control room or the vital hub to provide acute care en route with triage to the closest available emergency room.
KASHMIR inaugurated this service at SKICC, Srinagar, on July 18, 2019, to be launched by using Atal Dulloo, IAS Financial Commissioner, Health and Medical Education Dept. Dr. Omar Javed Shah, Director SKIMS and different invitees, Principal/ Dean GMC – Dr. Parvaiz Shah, Director Health Services – Dr. Kunzes Dolma and Director General, Youth Services and Sports- Dr. Saleem Ur Rahman.
Emergency Medical Services, EMS, is nonexistent in Kashmir. As of now, there is no strong or best care EMS to be had within the valley. This has a big healthcare effect in Kashmir. There can be a massive postponement in receiving emergency hospital treatment as pre-health center care is missing. As a result, mortality and morbidity go up notably.KASHMIR is desirous of changing the “shipping automobile concept of ambulances” to “lifesaving emergency scientific transportation.” It is eager to have a proof-based EMS driven by technology and skilled personnel. KASHMIR plans to execute an EMS version to supply excellent ambulance service in Kashmir and begin within parts of Srinagar town to enjoy and gauge popular reaction. These offerings could be extended to the whole Srinagar district in distinct stages.
HELP and Save Heart Kashmir are our main ground partners. SAVE HEART is a group of young and passionate physicians who need to make an alternative in healthcare shipping in Kashmir and are recognized for using social media to get cardiac care to remote areas. HELP Foundation is a well reputable corporation with a huge body of labor in the nonprofit sector.
The backbone of the EMRS is a well-educated clinical and paramedical group of workers. They may be BLS (Basic Life Support) and ACLS (Advanced Life Support).
An EMS telephone range will be made to be had for getting admission to most of the people. People want to be knowledgeable about using this number for emergencies, handiest, and not everyday healthcare advice.
KASHMIR is well aware of the economic task of such a healthcare operation. However, nearly non-existent EMS in Kashmir demands that such providers have to be supplied to Kashmir, and it will contain sacrifice on different fronts. Passionate individuals will make contributions with the aid of donating their time, information, and financial contributions. As of now, EMRS could be funded through KASHMIR and KASHMIR well-wishers.
EMS has gotten the attention of Kashmiris in some other places within the world. We have reached our Kashmiri pals and associates around the sector correctly to assist in this undertaking.
Our tasks were performed with the support of our ground associate Help Poor Voluntary Trust Hpvt and numerous operational companions, Al Imdaad and Boukvat. Include Hepatitis C remedy, several hemodialyses tasks, mental health/ deaddiction, and a district sensible vision screening of faculty kids. We conduct annual camps properly -multispecialty, mental fitness, diabetes screening, and others. We also interact in educational endeavors within the United States for our medical fraternity, including CME conferences held in Philadelphia in 2017, Washington DC and Los Angeles in 2018, and upcoming in Chicago for 2019.
