Chennai, Nov 27 (UNI) 'TACT Academy', India's first simulation-based health care training centre for clinical training, was launched here today.
Speaking on the occasion, TACT Founder and Managing Director Dr N Ramakrishnan said India was on the threshold of a healthcare boom and poised to be the world's healthcare destination.
''It is imperative that our medical professionals are well equipped to deal with the ever-changing field of medicine. It was with this goal to offer a training facility on par with international centres, the TACT Academy was launched,'' he added.
He said the Academy would offer standardised and customised courses designed to suit specific target audiences that include doctors, nurses and paramedical professionals.
TACT also offers a programme for the public ''SAGA'' (Save A Life, Give A Life) which educates about saving a life through first-aid training and giving a life through organ donation, he said.
TACT is now accredited by American Heart Association as their International Training Centre.
''We are proud to collaborate with American Heart Association (AHA) whose mission is to reduce disability and death from cardiovascular disease and stroke,'' he added.
Dr Ramakrishnan said ''our mission is Training Lives to Save Lives. We believe that healthcare professionals should have access to courses that are comprehensive, interactive and evidence-based.'' ''We provide this unique environment where, in addition to clinical acumen, we teach skills like critical thinking, crisis management, team approach and communication and many more,'' he said.
The first centre in Chennai has been well received and more such would be opened across the country in future, he said.
