On location: Jamaica and Trinidad
MPS’s Dr Nancy Boodhoo and Dr Brian Charles, consultant to MPS, visited Jamaica and Trinidad in early May to share vital updates on education and risk management
This latest educational visit by Dr Boodhoo and Dr Charles began at the end of April in Kingston, Jamaica, where a presentation was given to both doctors and dentists on risk management. Entitled “The relevance and relation to quality healthcare”, the presentation was then followed by an interactive discussion involving the audience – principal concerns raised were over resources, communication and open disclosure.
Dr Charles then repeated the presentation at Kingston Public Hospital, introducing a hospital emphasis for the benefit of the doctors and medical students at the hospital. It was then over to the dental school of the University of West Indies, where Dr Charles and Dr Boodhoo spoke to fourth year students on negligence and consent. Following some interactive discussion, there was much interest in MPS’s e-learning platform and its access for students.
