An international multi-asset gold mining company requested Critical Care International complete a gap audit of their medical services to ensure the services available to their employees and subcontractors conformed to international best practice. The review process highlights some discrete areas of medical practice that required modernisation and Critical Care International were requested to develop a training and assurance plan to achieve this.
During a series of deployments an experienced Critical Care International doctor delivered a package of training, mentoring and teaching services focused on the deficiencies previously highlighted. The syllabus was designed in collaboration with the clinic’s doctors and nurses alongside input from client management and other project teams. Topics included a range of emergency presentations and chronic diseases delivered by varying teaching methods, including bedside teaching, lecture-based and practical exercises, as well as project-wide emergency simulations. The programme resulted in significant improvements in standards of care and administration with members of the clinic demonstrating commitment, enthusiasm and increased confidence.
