Tata Trusts and Tata group have tied up with Christian Medical College (CMC), Vellore, and Care Institute of Health Sciences (CIHS), Hyderabad, to assist healthcare professionals augment their skills in Covid-19 management.

This is the fourth such intervention of Tata Trusts to support India in its Covid-19 response.

The Trusts’ intervention follows the Chairman Ratan N Tata’s statement that “urgent emergency resources need to be deployed to cope with the needs of fighting the Covid-19 crisis, which is one of the toughest challenges the human race will face”.

The curated 22-hour online training programmes are meant for specific staff chosen by identified hospitals and are provided free of cost.

Tata Trusts believes that ICU physicians and intensivists, specialised in critical care management, will require support of a wider cohort of doctors, nurses and paramedical staff to treat Covid-19 patients. The intent of the training programmes is to meet this need by acquainting non-ICU professionals with the fundamental principles and practices of critical care.

The training includes essentials of interventions and procedures in ICUs, orientation of critical care skills like airway management and ventilator management, and how to triage a criticality as mild, moderate or severe and refer cases to appropriate facilities.

The programmes will also cover essentials of managing variegated facilities for Covid-19 management, such as isolation centres, quarantine centres, and management of service areas and patients with mild illness.
