Flying Doctors Nigeria is launching the Pre-Hospital Care Handbook for Africa, a 200 page textbook/workbook designed to guide the new generation of pre-hospital care providers in Nigeria.
The book, the firm’s Business Development Manager (BDM), Mr Oluwatosin Aremu, said in the statement would be different from others by concentrating on problems commonly seen in the pre-hospital environment in the developing world.
The statement said the contributors and editors were health care professionals from all over the developing world who had experience in pre-hospital care.
The event, it said would take place at the Civic Centre on Ozunba Mbadiwe, Victoria Island, Lagos on November 29 at 3:00 pm.
It said: “We believe that the publication of this book should usher in a new dawn in the area of Pre-Hospital Care in Africa and encourage the training of Pre-Hospital Care professionals across the continent. We envisage that the formal training of these Pre-Hospital Care Providers will save millions of lives yearly in Africa as trauma is currently responsible for more deaths globally than HIV, Malaria and TB combined.”
