Some selected doctors and nurses from the 37 Military Hospital have benefitted from Multi-Professional Obstetric Simulation Training (MOSET) – thanks to a United Kingdom based foundation, Trio Bridge Foundation (TBF).

As part of the training held in Accra recently, the beneficiaries were taken through specialised areas such as Improvement of Fetal and Maternal Health and Outcomes (IFMHO), Managing Pre-Eclampsia and Reducing Maternal Death.

They were also trained on how to manage Maternal Collapse and Maternal Sepsis promptly, and major Obstertric Haemorrhage.

A statement issued by the Public Relations outfit of the hospital said the training formed part of a visit by a seven-member delegation from the foundation to the facility.

It said the team would also pay a visit to the Methodist Faith Hospital at Ankaase in the Ashanti Region before paying a courtesy call on the Bishop of the Methodist Church.

Meanwhile, the leader of the delegation, Mr George Noi-Lartey who is also a co-founder of TBF explaining the rationale for the visit said the foundation was founded a year ago to assist in the training of trainers in specialised fields of medical endeavour.

He said the sole aim of the foundation was to train trainers to impart whatever they have learnt to other colleague professionals in their respective fields to ensure the sustainability of the profession.

Mr Noi-Lartey, an Information Technology Consultant based in the UK said apart from that, it was also to bridge the gap of the knowledge and practices of the developing world.

“The world has now become a global village therefore the need for professionals to bridge the gap to enhance an effective and efficient output by professionals,” he emphasised.

He stated that they also train people in different areas but their focus for this training was on the reduction of maternal mortality and to improve upon it which has been tried and been successful in Zimbabwe.
