  • (1888PressRelease) July 19, 2011 - Staff at the American Hospital Dubai's Fetal and Maternal Medicine Center have completed over 500 hours of accredited training, under an innovative continuous medical education (CME) program which started with a focus on fetal monitoring training. The program is being undertaken with online training company K2 for whom American Hospital Dubai is the first client in the Middle East through the Local Support Office of T2 Experts Health Information Management LLC (T2 LLC) - pioneering comprehensive professional training in the region.

    With the introduction in the UAE in 2010 of new requirements for accredited continuous medical education (CME) for nurses, the American Hospital Dubai responded by introducing K2 Medical Systems (K2) training programs for its nursing staff, in association with Abu Dhabi-based agents for K2 in the MENA region, T2 LLC - the first K2 training programs run in Dubai through a local office.

    T2 LLC also provides other CME Accredited CTG Sessions for clinicians in conjunction with the K2 Training Program, making this a comprehensive teaching package.

    The K2MS Fetal Monitoring Training System is a web based eLearning system that provides comprehensive training in the assessment of fetal status during labour. The importance of training in fetal heart rate monitoring interpretation has long been recognised by leading international professional colleges, however, continual training has traditionally been difficult to implement on an individual basis.

    "The K2MS Teaching Package was chosen to help maintain our exceptional standards, by providing high quality training and support for clinicians, thereby improving core knowledge and updating skills," said Mr Thomas Murray, CEO of the American Hospital Dubai.

    The K2MS Teaching Package enables clinicians to update their skills and core knowledge by providing an online training system that can be accessed anywhere, anytime, to suit the user. The Teaching Package, already used by over 100,000 clinicians worldwide, also contains a regularly updated Simulation Library, thereby allowing continual improvement in competency. Comprehensive reports of user progress are also provided for administrative and compliance management; making this training system an important auditing resource.

    Mr. Thomas Murray, CEO of American Hospital, added: "The quality of our staff is what has set us apart for almost 15 years. We are delighted to have introduced this training innovation in Dubai and the response from clinicians attending the sessions has been extremely positive and enthusiastic. To date, 500 CME hours have been awarded to our fetal nursing staff, most of whom have completed the full K2 program. Staff are continuing to improve their knowledge and the more they use the system the better. The results are clear - pre and post training tests for staff show a significant increase in knowledge."
