There are a lot of pediatric nurses in India, but not a lot about what they do and how they do it.
With more than 10,000 such nurses in the country, there is a lot to be learned about the care and safety of children, especially those with chronic illnesses, and how to keep children healthy and well.
To this end, the Child Care Association of India (CCAI) is launching a programme to educate parents about pediatric nurses, to help them better understand their roles and responsibilities, and to share tips and strategies to reduce pediatric infections.
CCAI president Rajesh Chaudhary said in a recent meeting with senior pediatricians that this was an issue that was overlooked in Indian education.
He said the focus needed to be on the patient and on the child, not the nurse.
“The nurses are part of the family, and this is a responsibility of every parent, so let’s make sure they are fully integrated in their families,” he said.
Chaudsary said the CCAI had also developed a checklist of common misconceptions and misconceptions of pediatrics.
“Some of them are misconceptions about what we do, how we work, how to do it, what the patient’s needs are.
This is a big topic, and it’s an issue we need to address,” he added.
The CCAI, the government’s national network for child care and the Indian Nurses Association (INA), which is working with the CCIA to educate and raise awareness of pediatric care, launched the initiative to teach parents about the role of pediatricians in India in a series of webinars that will be held in schools across the country.
The Webinar, which was held in Delhi on Tuesday, was co-ordinated by the CCI, and the first one is scheduled to be held on Thursday.
In the first session, titled ‘The Role of Pediatric Nurses in India’, the CCII and the CCAA members will be sharing their experience in the field of pediatric health and how it relates to the Indian health system.
In the second session, on Thursday, the participants will be discussing the impact of a child’s health on a child, parents, and their families.
“The role of the pediatric nurse is to provide the child with all the supports, whether it is by providing health care, or providing other services.
We are a team, and we work together to achieve the best outcomes for our children,” said Dr Kavita Chaudhi, president of the CCIU, a pediatrician-training organisation based in New Delhi.
It is a role that the Indian Medical Association (IMA), the country’s largest medical association, has recognised as critical for the well-being of children.
IMA president Praveen Swaminathan said that the CCIB’s website, Pediatric Health, should be updated to explain the importance of pediatric staff in children’s health.
“As an organisation, the CCIP has to work on educating the public about pediatric care.
It should not be a hobby.
There is a reason why we are the largest medical professional body in the world.
It is because of our expertise in the health of children,” he told The Hindu.
“We have to work with the parents and educate them about the importance and the role the pediatric nurses play.”
