Boosting UG Medical Education in India: 50 New Medical Colleges Approved

In an important development for India’s undergraduate medical education, 50 new medical institutions have been approved this year. These colleges, which are made up of 20 private and 30 public institutions, have a staggering 8,195 MBBS seats available for admission. According to official statistics, the nation now possesses a significant 1,07,658 undergraduate medical seats as a result of this most recent growth.

Opening Up Medical Education to More People

The development of these 50 new medical institutions has improved the state of healthcare in numerous Indian states. Telangana, Rajasthan, Tamil Nadu, Odisha, Nagaland, Maharashtra, Assam, Karnataka, Gujarat, Haryana, Jammu & Kashmir, West Bengal, Uttar Pradesh, and Madhya Pradesh are just a few of the different places where recognised institutions can be found. This extensive dissemination attempts to close the knowledge gap between the need for healthcare professionals and the available resources by providing qualified instruction to aspirant medical students across the nation.

Taking on the Issues

At a time when medical aspirants in India have voiced worries over the derecognition of numerous existing institutions, the number of medical colleges and MBBS seats has recently increased. 38 medical colleges across the nation have had their recognition revoked by the Under-Graduate Medical Education Board of the National Medical Commission (NMC) during the past two and a half months for allegedly not upholding the required standards. Additionally, 102 other medical institutions have received show-cause notifications indicating the need for quick correction and adherence to quality standards.

Safety Monitoring and Compliance

The UG board of the NMC’s inspections revealed a number of shortcomings and shortfalls in the colleges that were denied recognition. During these inspections, a number of flaws were found, including a lack of adherence to established standards, issues with CCTV cameras, biometric attendance methods linked to Aadhaar, and inconsistencies with faculty rolls. To guarantee that students receive high-quality healthcare education, it is essential for schools delivering medical education to uphold strict requirements.

Impact of Government Initiatives

The Indian government has actively increased the number of medical institutions, which has consequently increased the number of accessible MBBS seats, in an effort to address the nation’s physician deficit. As of right now, there are 660 medical colleges, up from 387 in 2014 [3]. This is a tremendous 71% increase. Additionally, the number of MBBS seats has increased by an astonishing 97%, from 51,348 in 2014 to 101,043 now. Particularly noteworthy are the government medical colleges (GMCs), which provide 52,778 seats, and the private medical colleges, which provide 48,265 seats.

Future Opportunities and Benefits

The opening of these 50 new medical colleges increases the ability to educate future physicians while also providing a wide range of opportunities for those who want to pursue a career in medicine. The considerable increase in undergraduate medical seats enables more students to pursue their aspirations of becoming medical professionals, strengthening the nation’s entire healthcare system.

Forgery in Admission in Nursing Colleges Without Entrance Exam

Admission forgery at Uttar Pradesh nursing colleges has recently come to light, raising worries about arbitrary admissions and rule violations. Around 110 students were accepted to these colleges without taking the Joint Entrance Examination, which is required for admission. This article dives into the issue, the current inquiry, and the potential ramifications for the persons involved.

Admission Errors in Private Nursing Schools

Private nursing institutions in Uttar Pradesh have been providing admissions on the spur of the moment, disregarding established procedures and regulations. These colleges admitted around 110 students who did not take the required Joint Entrance Examination. This violation of admission procedures has prompted an investigation to find out what is causing these abnormalities.

Investigation into Admission Fraud

Following the revelation of the admission anomalies, an investigation into the scope of the forgery has been launched. Authorities have demanded updated information on all admitted students from the state’s nursing colleges. Following the identification of the colleges concerned, appropriate action will be taken against them. Furthermore, disciplinary action against officers and employees of the Directorate General of Medical Education (DGME) office who may have been complicit in these false admissions may arise from the investigation.

Uttar Pradesh Nursing Colleges Overview

Uttar Pradesh has over 300 nursing institutes, with roughly 13,000 seats available. There are 24 Government Nursing Colleges among them. Prior to this, private nursing schools only accepted students who had finished their intermediate education. The Department of Medical Education, on the other hand, introduced a centralized system for B.Sc Nursing admissions in the academic year 2022-23. In partnership with KGMU, Atal Bihari Vajpayee Medical University held a combined written entrance examination for admission to B.Sc Nursing in all government and private colleges except SGPGI.

 

Role of Directorate General of Medical Education and Training (DGME)

The DGME is in charge of counselling students and assigning them to colleges depending on their merit. The information about the admitted students is provided to the Atal Bihari Vajpayee Medical University. Nursing schools submitted applications for the yearly exams in May. The admissions falsification was discovered when the Medical University checked the list of examination applications to the counselling records.

Influence on Annual Examinations

The discovery of admission violations has had a substantial impact on the annual examination process. In addition to the counselling procedure, about 1,500 additional applications were received. The yearly examination was postponed due to an unanticipated rise in applications. In response, a joint meeting of high-ranking officials from the Medical Education Department, the DGME, and the Medical University was held. The event triggered a thorough investigation, and the DGME has requested information on new admittance students from all nursing colleges in the state.

Admission without an Entrance Examination

Several private colleges, according to sources, have admitted students who did not even take the Joint Entrance Examination. So far, around 110 similar cases have been identified. Furthermore, around 137 students have accepted admission to colleges other than those chosen during the counselling process. As a result, students who fall under these categories are ineligible to take the yearly examination.

Employees of the DGME Office Could Be Involved

Preliminary investigations have uncovered probable malfeasance by DGME officers and workers. This raises questions about probable cooperation during the admissions process between the DGME office and private colleges. Furthermore, admissions in several universities have occurred after the designated deadline, necessitating a full probe of the department’s conduct. As a result, if proven guilty, officers and employees of the DGME office may suffer sanctions.

Accountability and Consequences

Only students who have passed the Joint Entrance Examination should be considered for admission to nursing schools. Admissions falsification not only jeopardises the educational system’s integrity, but it also raises concerns about the quality of education and the competency of admitted students.

 

The nursing schools participating in the admissions process bear responsibility for these violations. These universities must be held accountable for their activities after circumventing established norms and admitting students without administering the required entrance exam. Authorities should conduct a comprehensive inquiry into each college to ascertain the degree of their involvement and the individuals responsible.

 

If found guilty, the nursing colleges may face serious penalties, including the loss of their accreditation and association with the relevant university. This will not only dissuade rival colleges, but will also ensure that the education system retains its credibility and adheres to the values of justice and transparency.

 

Furthermore, the role of DGME office officers and workers in assisting these false admissions must be properly probed. If any involvement or cooperation is discovered, the responsible persons should face severe disciplinary measures, including firing and legal action. It is critical to maintain public faith in government institutions and to guarantee that individuals charged with the job of regulating admissions adhere to the highest ethical and legal standards.

 

The ramifications of these errors go beyond the admissions process. Students who were admitted without meeting the minimum qualifications are now at a disadvantage. Their credentials may be questioned, and they may experience difficulties in their academic and professional careers. It is critical that appropriate steps be taken to correct this problem and give these children with a fair settlement.

 

To establish the affected students’ eligibility and competency, the authorities might consider performing a re-examination or using an alternate evaluation method. This will aid in recognising students who truly deserve to pursue their nursing degree and distinguishing them from those who obtained admission through deception.

 

To avoid such instances in the future, admission procedures must be strengthened and tougher control methods implemented. Audits and inspections should be undertaken on a regular basis to ensure that nursing colleges follow the specified rules and regulations. Furthermore, awareness campaigns and educational activities should be launched to educate students and their parents about the legitimate admissions processes as well as the risks associated with fraudulent practises.

 

To summarise, admission falsification in Uttar Pradesh nursing institutions is a severe issue that must be tackled quickly and properly. The inquiry into the anomalies should be conducted thoroughly, and those who are responsible should face appropriate repercussions. Maintaining the educational system’s integrity and fairness is critical to ensuring that students obtain a quality education and are not disadvantaged by fraudulent practises.

 

Govt Allopathic Medical College, Banda Receives Recognition from NMC

The Government Allopathic Medical College at Banda has eventually entered recognition from the apex medical body- National Medical Commission( NMC). This news comes as a major relief to medical scholars who have been suffering due to the lack of recognition after taking admission at the medical council since 2017. The advertisement of the recognition was verified by star Secretary of Medical Education Alok Kumar on Sunday. In addition to Banda Medical College, two further medical colleges in the state are anticipated to admit recognition soon. The Indian Medical Association( IMA) expressed its gratitude to Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath for supporting the future of over 300 medical scholars.

Recognition for Banda Medical College and Inspection of Other Colleges

With the recognition from the NMC, the Government Allopathic Medical College at Banda has eventually achieved the recognition it deserves. The NMC has also conducted examinations of Azamgarh and Saharanpur medical colleges, and recognition will be granted to them as well in the near future.

 

Relief for Medical scholars

The recognition of Banda Medical College comes as a major relief to medical scholars who have been facing uncertainty and difficulty due to the lack of recognition. numerous scholars who pursued their MBBS course at Government Allopathic Medical College at Banda, Government Medical College at Azamgarh, and Government Medical College at Saharanpur were unable to gain recognition from the National Medical Commission. This left them stranded, as they were unable to get state medical council registration, which is necessary for rehearsing medicine in the state of Uttar Pradesh.

MA’s Efforts and Concerns

The Indian Medical Association played a pivotal part in supporting the recognition of these medical colleges. In a letter addressed to Chief Minister Yogi Adityanath, the IMA expressed serious concerns about the working of the National Medical Commission. The association blamed the mask permit given by the NMC, which allowed medical colleges to operate solely on the basis of affidavits. This decision has led to the current situation where estimable medical colleges have been unable to gain recognition, causing distress to hundreds of medical scholars.

Need for Better Functioning at the National Medical Commission

The IMA emphasized the need for immediate intervention and better performing at the National Medical Commission. The association stressed the impact of the lack of recognition on medical education and the future of scholars. They prompted the Chief Minister to take action to address the incautious and careless functioning at the NMC, which has resulted in the current dilemma.

Consequences of Lack of Recognition

The lack of recognition from the NMC has had severe consequences for the affected medical graduates. Without recognition, they’re unable to register with the State Medical Faculty( SMF), the representative body of the NMC in Uttar Pradesh. Registration with the SMF is obligatory for medical graduates who wish to exercise medicine in the state or pursue advanced studies. Without enrollment , these graduates may be treated as quacks, and legal action may be taken against them by the Chief Medical Officer of their separate quarter. This situation has caused query and solicitude among the affected scholars, who have been staying for a resolution to their lack of recognition.

Concerns of 2017 Batch MBBS Graduates

The 2017 batch MBBS graduates from these three medical colleges have been facing enterprises regarding the lack of recognition for more than a time now. This situation has created significant challenges for them as they’re unable to gain enrollment from the State Medical Faculty. As a result, they’re unable to exercise medicine or pursue further specialization.

 

The lack of recognition for the 2017 batch graduates has put their career prospects on hold and has caused frustration and query among them. They’ve invested times of hard work, fidelity, and fiscal resources into their medical education, but the detention in recognition has hindered their professional growth.

 

Likewise, the 2018 batch MBBS scholars are also concerned about their future as they’re approaching their examinations and are about to complete their MBBS degree. They’ve witnessed the difficulties faced by the 2017 batch and fear that they might encounter similar challenges.

 

The lack of recognition not only affects the individual graduates but also has wider implications for the healthcare system and society as a whole. These graduates retain precious medical knowledge and chops that could contribute to addressing the deficit of healthcare professionals and perfecting healthcare services. Still, without proper recognition and enrollment , their eventuality remains untapped.

 

The concerned authorities and applicable stakeholders should address this issue instantly and give a resolution for the 2017 batch graduates. It’s essential to ensure that their hard work and qualifications are honored, allowing them to contribute to the healthcare field and fulfill their professional aspirations.

 

Also, measures should be taken to help similar detainments in recognition for future batches, similar as streamlining executive processes and perfecting collaboration between medical colleges and nonsupervisory bodies. This will help maintain the trust and confidence of future medical graduates in the system and ensure the smooth progression of their careers.

 

Overall, the enterprises faced by the 2017 batch MBBS graduates and the apprehensions of the 2018 batch scholars punctuate the need for effective communication, translucency, and timely recognition processes within the medical education system. Resolving these issues won’t only profit the affected individualities but also contribute to the overall development of the healthcare sector.

What are ANM and GNM Courses?

ANM and GNM are two courses in the nursing sector. ANM is an abbreviation for Auxiliary Nursing Midwifery, while GNM is an abbreviation for General Nursing and Midwifery. Individuals who want to become competent nurses and healthcare professionals can take advantage of these courses, which give education and training.

ANM  Programme: ANM Programme is a two-year programme that focuses on providing basic healthcare and nursing services. It equips students to help people, families, and communities with their healthcare requirements. The ANM course focuses on mother and child healthcare, general nursing care, and first aid.

GNM Programme: The GNM programme is a three-year programme that teaches comprehensive knowledge and skills in nursing and midwifery. Anatomy, physiology, microbiology, nutrition, medical-surgical nursing, paediatric nursing, psychiatric nursing, community health nursing, and midwifery are among the topics covered in the course curriculum. GNM graduates are prepared to work in a variety of healthcare settings, including hospitals, clinics, community health centres, and other medical facilities.

Both ANM and GNM programmes are focused on training competent nursing professionals capable of providing high-quality healthcare to patients. These courses teach students important nursing skills, medical procedures, patient care practises, and how to handle medical crises.

Bihar Govt Reduces Fees In Private Medical Colleges

 

The Bihar government has taken a crucial step to relieve the financial load on students seeking medical education in the state. Students and their families will benefit from the government’s decision to charge government fees for 585 places at nine private medical colleges. The goal of this initiative is to make medical education more accessible and inexpensive to aspiring doctors in Bihar. Students admitted to half of the seats at private medical institutions will now pay Rs 40,800 in enrolment fees and Rs 22,000 in annual fees, which is a huge reduction from the former annual fees of Rs 13 lakh. The decision is consistent with the National Medical Commission’s (NMC) regulation and strives to bridge the gap between government and private medical colleges.

Government Intervention: Bringing Medical College Education Fees into Balance

The Bihar government’s move to levy government fees in private medical colleges is a constructive step towards bringing education costs in the state more in line. The government hopes to encourage more people to pursue medical study and contribute to the healthcare sector by lowering the financial load on students. This programme is especially important in a country like India, where the expense of medical school is frequently a considerable barrier for aspiring doctors. The move benefits not just the students, but also the overall enhancement of healthcare services in Bihar.

Order of the State Government: Ensuring Affordable Education

The Bihar State Government has made steps to fix education fees in all government medical colleges in response to the National Medical Commission’s mandate. The purpose of this decree is to standardize prices and make medical school more affordable for students. Furthermore, the government has set costs for open seats in all private medical colleges, ensuring that students who choose private institutions can obtain an education at a reasonable cost. The decision underscores the government’s determination to ensure that financial constraints do not prevent students from achieving their ambitions of becoming doctors.

Students Will Benefit From Reduced Tuition at Private Medical College

The fee cut for 585 seats at nine private medical colleges provides significant relief to students and their families. Students would pay Rs 40,800 as enrolling fees and Rs 22,000 as annual fees under the amended fee structure. This huge drop from the previous yearly costs of Rs 13 lakh makes medical school more affordable for students from a variety of socioeconomic backgrounds. The move not only alleviates the financial strain on students, but also relieves pressure on families who are struggling to finance the hefty expenditures of medical education.

The Directive of the Supreme Court: Ensuring Fair Practises

The State Government of Bihar has adjusted the educational fees in five private medical colleges in accordance with the Supreme Court’s judgment. Bihar’s health government has already set the fees for MBBS courses at these medical institutes from 2021 to 2026. 

 

Radha Devi Jageshwari Memorial Medical College and Hospital, Muzaffarpur

Shri Narayan Medical Institute & Hospital Saharsa

Lord Buddha Koshi Medical College & Hospital Saharsa

Netaji Subhash Medical College & Hospital Bihata

Madhubani Medical College & Hospital Madhubani are the five medical colleges. 

 

The tuition and development expenditures are included in the price structure, which ranges between Rs 7.98 lakh to Rs 15.50 lakh. This order ensures that students are treated fairly in terms of costs, and it prohibits private schools from overcharging students for their education.

Additional Expenses: Other Than Tuition Fees

While the reduced government fees bring great comfort to students, it is important to highlight that students will still incur extra costs in addition to tuition prices. According to the State Government’s decree, students would be responsible for paying dormitory fees, transport costs, mess charges and other associated expenses to the institute separately.

 

Overall, the Bihar government’s decision to charge government fees in private medical colleges is an important step towards making quality medical education more accessible and affordable. It establishes a precedent for other states to follow, ensuring that all deserving students have a level playing field in medical school. This decision will benefit the healthcare system by generating qualified doctors who can successfully serve the population.

 

What It Takes to Be a Physiotherapist – Here’s How to Find One

The field of physical therapy has grown significantly in importance and recognition in the fast-paced world of today. Physical therapists are essential in helping people heal from injuries, control chronic illnesses, and enhance their general quality of life. This in-depth essay explores the several career options available in physical therapy, emphasising the crucial role played by physiotherapists in comprehending the intricacies of the human body and providing efficient treatments.

A Diverse Approach to Human Body Understanding by the Physiotherapist

The field of physical therapy is dedicated to fully comprehending the human body. The brain, neurological system, cells, joints, and bones are just a few of the organs that physiotherapists are extensively trained about. Physiotherapists are able to accurately identify and treat a variety of illnesses and injuries by assessing the health of these essential parts.

The Brain: Unlocking Neuroplasticity’s Power

The functioning of our body is controlled by the wonderful organ known as the brain. Physiotherapists use neuroplasticity to encourage healing and recovery because they are aware of the complex interaction between the brain and the body. Through tailored physical therapy interventions, individuals can regain lost function thanks to the brain’s neuroplasticity, which refers to its capacity to reorganise and adapt.

The Nervous System: Getting It Back in Balance and Working

The nervous system acts as the body’s internal communication network, carrying signals from the brain to various organs. Through specialised procedures, physiotherapists concentrate on bringing the nervous system back into balance and functionality. They can reduce pain, increase mobility, and promote general wellbeing by focusing on the nerve system.

Unleashing the Regeneration Power of Cells

Our bodies are composed of small units called cells. Physical therapists use a variety of techniques to promote healing and tissue repair because they are aware of the potential of cellular regeneration. Physiotherapists harness the power of cellular regeneration through targeted exercises, physical therapy, and cutting-edge technologies to hasten the healing process.

 

Joints: Increasing Flexibility and Mobility

Maintaining flexibility and movement depends on joints. The assessment of joint function and creation of individualised therapy regimens to improve and restore mobility are specialties of physiotherapists. Physiotherapists assist people in regaining their independence and enhance their general quality of life by combining stretching exercises, strengthening methods, and joint mobilisation.

Bones: Increasing the Stability of the Base

A healthy body is built on a foundation of strong bones. Physiotherapists with a focus on bone health use weight-bearing exercises and focused workouts to improve bone density and ward off osteoporosis. Physiotherapists promote bone strength and lower the risk of fractures by using their knowledge to benefit their patients’ long-term health.

Physiotherapists Function: A Holistic Approach to Treatment

Physiotherapists are essential members of the healthcare team because they treat patients holistically, taking into account all elements of their health—physical, psychological, and emotional. They collaborate closely with patients to create individualised treatment regimens that are catered to their unique requirements and objectives. Physiotherapists promote comprehensive healing and optimum recovery by taking the person as a whole.

Evaluation and Diagnosis: Finding the Root Cause

To determine the underlying cause of a patient’s ailment, physiotherapists first undertake a thorough assessment and diagnostic. They acquire crucial data through physical examinations, medical history reviews, and diagnostic tests in order to create an accurate treatment plan.

Planning the Treatment: Personalised Interventions for the Best Results

Physical therapists develop unique treatment regimens for each patient based on the results of the examination. These plans involve a range of interventions, such as manual therapy, modalities, therapeutic activities, and patient education.

Exercises for Therapy: Increasing Strength and Function

Physical therapy’s foundational component is therapeutic exercise. Exercise regimens created by physiotherapists are intended to reestablish physical function in general, including strength and flexibility. Depending on the patient’s health and goals, these exercises could involve stretching, strengthening, balance training, and aerobic workouts. Physiotherapists assist patients in regaining their functional capacities and enhancing their quality of life by progressively advancing the exercises.

 

A Hands-On Approach to Healing with Manual Therapy

With manual treatment procedures, the physiotherapist’s hands manipulate joints, soft tissues, and muscles with dexterity. These methods seek to lessen discomfort while enhancing range of motion and tissue mobility. Joint mobilisation, soft tissue mobilisation, myofascial release, and manual traction are a few examples of manual therapy. Physiotherapists encourage tissue repair and restore ideal movement patterns by utilising precise treatments.

Modalities: Using technology to improve recovery

Physiotherapists frequently use modalities to promote healing and hasten recovery in addition to physical activity and manual therapy. Electrical stimulation, ultrasound, heat or cold therapy, laser therapy, and therapeutic taping are a few examples of these methods. Physiotherapists can help stimulate tissue regeneration, lessen inflammation, and reduce pain by adding these cutting-edge technology into their therapy regimens.

Patient Education: Giving People the Power to Improve Their Long-Term Health

Physical therapy places a high priority on patient education. Physiotherapists enable people by educating them about their conditions, outlining the course of treatment, and providing advice for self-management. This instruction may cover topics such as good body mechanics, ergonomic concepts, at-home workout plans, and injury prevention techniques. Physiotherapists encourage long-term health and wellbeing by giving patients the tools to manage their illness on their own.

Scope of Physiotherapist Career

The demand for high-quality healthcare is always growing, and the field of physical therapy has a lot of work opportunities. In order to serve a variety of patient demographics, physiotherapists can experiment with diverse practise environments and develop distinct specialties. The following are a few prospective careers in physical therapy:

1. Medical facilities and rehab facilities

For physiotherapists, hospitals and rehabilitation facilities offer a diversified and demanding environment. They assist patients who are recovering from operations, injuries, or serious medical conditions in these environments. Physiotherapists work with multidisciplinary teams to create thorough treatment regimens and ease patients’ return to normal activities.

2. Athletics and sports

Physiotherapists are frequently used by sports and athletic teams to enhance performance, avoid injuries, and speed up recovery. These experts collaborate closely with players to improve their total physical conditioning, strength, and flexibility. They might work on developing sport-specific training plans, injury prevention programmes, and on-field evaluation and treatment.

3. Independent Practise

Many physiotherapists start their own private practises where they provide patients who require physical therapy specialised services. The administration of patient care can be done independently and flexibly in private practise. Physiotherapists have the ability to concentrate on certain areas of expertise, refine their therapeutic philosophies, and create enduring connections with their patients.

4. Senior Care

The demand for physiotherapists with a focus on geriatric care is rising as the world’s population ages. These specialists help senior citizens retain their mobility, control chronic diseases, and enhance their general quality of life. Geriatric care-focused physiotherapists provide a variety of services catered to the special requirements of senior citizens.

 

  • Prevention of Falls and Balance Training

The likelihood of falls and associated injuries is one of the main issues facing older persons. In senior care, physiotherapists are essential in fall prevention and balance instruction. In order to enhance balance and lower the risk of falling, they identify an individual’s risk factors, such as muscle weakness, poor balance, and environmental dangers. Physiotherapists enable older persons to keep their independence and confidence in carrying out daily tasks through exercises, gait training, and home modifications.

 

  • Management of Chronic Pain

Older persons frequently have chronic pain, which frequently impairs their mobility and general wellbeing. Physiotherapists that specialise in geriatric care use a variety of strategies to effectively manage chronic pain. To reduce pain and enhance function, they could employ modalities like heat or cold therapy, electrical stimulation, and manual therapy. In addition, they create personalised workout plans to increase muscle strength, improve joint mobility, and lessen the burden of chronic pain on daily living.

 

  • Following Surgery Rehabilitation

Surgery requiring specialised rehabilitation is commonly performed on older patients, such as knee replacements or cardiac treatments. In order to speed healing and regain functional abilities, physiotherapists who specialise in geriatric care offer post-operative rehabilitation. To aid older persons in regaining strength, range of motion, and independence after surgery, they create individualised treatment regimens that include exercises, manual therapy, and assistive equipment. Physiotherapists enable a smooth transition from surgery to regular activities by regularly assessing progress and altering treatment as necessary.

 

  • Management of Age-Related Conditions

The management of age-related conditions that affect older individuals’ health and mobility is a specialty of geriatric physiotherapists. Osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, stroke, Parkinson’s disease, and Alzheimer’s disease are a few examples of these illnesses. Physiotherapists collaborate with medical teams to create thorough treatment plans that cater to the unique requirements of people with various diseases. They seek to minimise functional limits, lessen discomfort, and enhance overall quality of life by combining exercises, mobility aids, and therapy interventions.

 

  • Independent functioning and wellness promotion

An important objective of geriatric care is to encourage functional independence and general wellness. Physiotherapists use scientifically supported techniques to improve the physical health, mobility, and general wellbeing of older persons. To increase independence, they could concentrate on teaching daily living skills (ADLs), such as dressing, grooming, and using the restroom. In order to support ideal health and wellbeing, they also offer advice on right nutrition, lifestyle adjustments, and home security.

 

The treatment of elderly people is a prominent area of concentration in the physical therapy field, which has many career options. Supporting older individuals’ mobility, managing chronic illnesses, and enhancing their general quality of life are all important tasks for physiotherapists with expertise in geriatric care. These specialists give older persons the tools they need to age gracefully and keep their independence through the avoidance of falls, management of chronic pain, post-operative rehabilitation, management of age-related conditions, and wellness promotion. Physiotherapists that specialise in geriatric care make a substantial contribution to both the health of seniors and the state of healthcare as a whole.

Nurse Jobs Demand Growing Across Nation

The need for nurses is expanding across cities, according to the statistics, and Chennai is the second-most popular city for job postings after Bengaluru. According to information from a well-known job portal, the demand for nursing jobs in India increased significantly between April 2022 and April 2023, rising by more than 50%. This sudden increase in demand emphasizes how important nursing personnel are to the healthcare industry. Notably, Chennai has become one of the top cities for finding nursing jobs, closely after Bengaluru. As we commemorate Nurses Day, it is clear that there is a growing need for nurses in tier 2 cities like Pune, Ernakulam, Coimbatore, Kochi, Thiruvananthapuram, and Ahmedabad, which accounts for more than 12% of the overall need.

Nursing Profession in the Spotlight

Due to the emphasis on medical tourism in Tamil Nadu and the post-pandemic focus on boosting healthcare resources and infrastructure, the medical field, especially nursing, has been receiving more attention. As a result of this pattern, investments have persisted, making the healthcare industry a desirable market for prospective nurses. The national perspective about frontline healthcare personnel and their contributions to the wellbeing of the nation has significantly changed as a result of the global health crisis. Additionally, the need for private nursing services has increased among senior citizens, expanding work prospects in this industry. But it’s important to realize that the pandemic has presented a number of difficulties for medical staff.

Enhanced communication and working conditions

The goals of nurses and doctors in India are revealed via a research called “Checking the Pulse of Healthcare Workers” that was done by Indeed India. According to the report, 80% of physicians and 77% of nurses expressed a wish for a better work atmosphere with more communication. In response to this requirement, the healthcare industry is currently experiencing strong expansion, not just in India’s Tier 1 and Tier 2 cities but also globally. These findings are in line with how the healthcare sector is developing and how demand for nursing experts is rising.

Job Postings and Interest from Job Seekers

While there was a small decline of 6% in job seeker interest for nurse jobs during the same time period, overall year-over-year job seeker interest remains high, according to Sashi Kumar, Head of Sales at Indeed India, who commented on the research report. The necessity to continue fostering the growth of the nursing sector is underscored by the rising demand for nurse positions, which attests to the critical role that the nursing industry plays in our society.

 

The demand for nurses and the interest among prospective nursing students have differed significantly over the past two years, creating a talent mismatch for the nursing business. This disparity emphasises the need for steps to close the gap and inspire more people to choose nursing as a career.
