NMC Bill will provide private medical education to economically-weaker students: Ashwini Kumar Choubey

NMC Bill will provide private medical education to economically-weaker students: Ashwini Kumar Choubey

first_img The National Medical Commission Bill, which became an act recently after receiving the consent of President Ram Nath Kovind, will bring parity in medical education, and will be beneficial for meritorious, but economically-weaker students, Minister of State for Health and Family Welfare, Ashwini Kumar Choubey said recently at CME Excellence Summit and Awards organised by Integrated Health and Wellbeing Council (IHW).“Through this Bill, we are also encouraging the medical colleges which were closing down, they will also progress and will help prevent the fall in the number of medical schools. We have decided on the various aspects of the act after discussing with doctors from hospitals across the country. There were confusions and oppositions to the act but we have explained the provisions to them satisfactorily,” said Choubey.Earlier in the day, Secretary of the Department of Pharmaceuticals, Dr P D Vaghela said the stringent sampling and testing rules in India and the low failures indicate at the good quality of generic medicines and fixing the price ceiling for medicines has been immensely beneficial. “My request to the doctors is to prescribe generic medicines to at least to the poor patients. The generic medicines are like the branded medicines.The drug pricing control order (DPCO) in 2017 has made medicines more affordable and has brought a saving of more than Rs 12,400 crores. Jan Aushadhi stores have generated a saving of Rs 315 crore and Rs 2,000 crore for consumers in the last financial year,” he claimed.“Those doctors who are ignoring CME are doing at their own peril. Though we cannot rule out information bias of pharmaceutical giants in CME, I believe including nurses and other support staff will make it more effective. We may also partner with IHW to develop CME programmes,” he added.The effectiveness of medicines depends not only on its quality, but also on the doctors who are administering it, said Kamal Narayan, CEO, Integrated Health and Wellbeing (IHW) Council. “I believe supply of medicine is going to be important as the supply of basic necessities for healthy life – good air, water and food, are insufficient. Producing good medicine, however, does not guarantee food health, we need to make sure that the doctors have the knowledge to implement the upgradations,” he said.Dr Arun Kumar Gupta, President, Delhi Medical Council highlighted the importance of including knowledge about rules and regulations that is required in day-to day-practice. “We have launched our CME programmes recently, but that is not enough. A doctor needs to deal with 28 laws to run a small clinic and as many as 100 laws to run a hospital. However, nowhere is a doctor taught about this. The doctors know the science of medicines but we need to teach them the art of it – teach empathy for patients. Besides, financial management and good self-care should also be a part of the CME curriculum for the doctors,” Dr Gupta said.CME courses in India are funded by a wide range of organisations like Ministry of Health and Family Welfare (MOHF&W) and the Medical Council of India (MCI), as well as international organisations such as UNICEF. The MCI established a code of ethics stating that members should complete 30 hours of CME every five years in order to re-register as doctors but due to low literacy levels and poor awareness of good medical practice at the community level, there is little pressure from patients to motivate doctors to participate in CME programmes, despite what he referred to as the “dismal quality” of the medical service.

16-year-old STEM school shooting suspect to be tried as adult, judge rules

first_imgKuzma/iStock(DENVER) — A 16-year-old will be tried as an adult for his alleged role in a shooting at a Colorado school that killed one student and injured eight others, a judge has ruled.Alec McKinney, 16, and Devon Erickson, 18, face multiple charges including first-degree murder after allegedly opening fire inside the STEM School Highlands Ranch near Denver on May 7.Kendrick Castillo, an 18-year-old student who tried to confront the shooters, was killed.Judge Jeffrey K. Holmes on Wednesday rejected a request by McKinney’s attorneys to try the teenager as a juvenile.“Based on the totality of the evidence before it, the Court finds that it is has not been proved that the juvenile and the community would be better served by transferring this case to juvenile court,” Holmes wrote in his decision.“The evidence before the court at this stage of the proceedings indicates that McKinney’s actions were not spontaneous, but purposeful and planned,” the judge wrote. “Over many days he contemplated violent action, whether to frighten others or to cause them bodily harm.”The judge noted that McKinney — who was born biologically female but identifies as male — has experienced “serious trauma” in his life, including an abusive father, drug use, depression and thoughts of suicide.District Attorney George Brauchler said in a statement, “I am satisfied and pleased that the court agreed that this mass shooting case should be resolved in adult court.”“It is my intention to move forward without any additional delay towards the jury trial to which the defendant is entitled,” Brauchler said.Kendrick Castillo’s father told The Denver Post he was “elated” with the judge’s decision.Erickson does not have a date set for his arraignment.Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.

Nicola Sturgeon: Scotland will intervene in Article 50 case

Nicola Sturgeon: Scotland will intervene in Article 50 case

first_img“It simply cannot be right that those rights can be removed by the U.K. government on the say-so of a prime minister without parliamentary debate, scrutiny or consent. So legislation should be required at Westminster and the consent of the Scottish parliament should be sought before Article 50 is triggered.”The application will be submitted as soon as the U.K. government lodges its own appeal, Sturgeon said.The first minister insisted Scotland was not attempting to stand in the way of the will of the people of England and Wales, but stressed that “the democratic wishes of the people of Scotland and the national parliament of Scotland cannot be brushed aside as if they do not matter.”The prime minister, Sturgeon said, must live up to her promise to “listen to the will of the people of Scotland.”The U.K. government has said it is disappointed with the court’s decision, and maintained that its existing ministerial powers means it does not need parliamentary approval to trigger exit negotiations. The appeal judgment is expected in January.“The referendum result must be respected and delivered,” David Davis, secretary of state for exiting the European Union said Monday. “There must be no attempts to stay in EU, no attempts to rejoin through backdoor, no second referendum. The people have spoken, we intend to act on that decision.” Nicola Sturgeon confirmed Tuesday that the Scottish government would apply to be heard in the Article 50 legal case, the BBC reported.The British High Court ruled last week that U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May’s government cannot begin negotiations for leaving the European Union without first securing parliamentary approval. Scotland’s lord advocate will lodge a formal application to intervene in the case and will argue that the Scottish parliament’s consent should also be sought before Article 50 is triggered.“The Scottish government is clear that triggering Article 50 will directly affect devolved interests and rights in Scotland,” Sturgeon said at a press briefing at Bute House in Edinburgh. “And triggering Article 50 will inevitably deprive Scottish people and Scottish businesses of rights and freedoms which they currently enjoy.last_img read more
