[vc_row el_class=”pl-0″][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Keeping in mind our tradition of providing quality medical service training to improve healthcare in Pakistan, Ziauddin University will be hosting its 75th Emergency Obstetrics Neonatal Care (EMNOC) workshop at Dr. Ziauddin Hospital, North Campus. The workshop that be held on the 25th, 26th and 27th of February 2021, aims to educate medical students is numerous skills related to obstetric care. This includes exercises, basic emergency care, as well as all that is needed to ensure a healthy delivery. The facilitators of the workshop include Prof. Rubina Hussain, Dr. Nigar Sadaf, Dr. Shama Chaudhry, Dr. Shazia Sultana, and Dr. Rehana Yasmeen.

The 3 day workshop in the past, has taught the registered students to practice basic life support, neonatal resuscitations, shoulder dystocia, PPH, and cord prolapse on obstetric manikins. Other topics that the trained physicians will touch include obstructed labour, obstetric fistula and complications linked to different stages of labour. Moreover, the purpose of the workshop is to ensure all the registered pupils step out with the basic knowledge needed to handle emergency delivery cases. This step alone can greatly help in decreasing the infant mortality rate in the country as well as help mothers who have just given birth recover faster.

To be a part of this movement towards a healthier nation, get registered for the 76th Emergency Obstetrics Neonatal Care (EMNOC) workshop to be held on the 8th, 9th and 10th of April, 2021.

Randomised, Embedded, Multi-factorial, Adaptive Platform Trial for Community-Acquired Pneumonia

[vc_row el_class=”pl-0″][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Ziauddin University has signed a Research Collaboration Agreement with Monash University, Australia to implement the global “Randomised, Embedded, Multi-factorial, Adaptive Platform Trial for Community-Acquired Pneumonia” (REMAP-CAP) project. REMAP-CAP is a global network of leading experts, institutions and research networks. With over 250 participating world-wide, REMAP-CAP is a truly global trial.

It is an adaptive platform trial in community acquired pneumonia, that was specifically designed to be employed in a pandemic to evaluate multiple interventions simultaneously in critically ill patients. In addition to recruiting patients with community acquired pneumonia who have been admitted to critical care, we are also recruiting patients with COVID-19 to understand optimal treatment strategies.

Ziauddin University is also the coordinating centre for other partner sites in Pakistan, including NICVD, The Indus Hospital, South City Hospital. The sites are increasing as the project progresses. The project is funded by Monash University.

Dr Madiha Hashmi’s efforts for bringing these global collaborations to Ziauddin University are highly laudable and continuous support from University Leadership is greatly appreciated.

New global health research to reduce the impacts of COVID-19 across low and middle income countries

[vc_row el_class=”pl-0″][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Ziauddin University has become part of University of Oxford led project: “African critical care registry network for pandemic surveillance, clinical management and research” by NIHR, in partnership with UK Research and Innovation (UKRI):

https://www.nihr.ac.uk/news/new-global-health-research-to-reduce-the-impacts-of-covid-19-across-low-and-middle-income-countries/25907

“Partners: University of Oxford (UK) African Coalition for Epidemic Research, Response and Training (ALERRT; international), Aga Khan University (Kenya), Debre Berhan University (Ethiopia), Doctors with Africa (CUAMM; Ethiopia, Sierra Leone and South Sudan), D’OR Institute for Research and Education (IDOR; Brazil), Intermediate Hospital (Namibia), International Forum for Acute Care Trialists (InFACT; international), International Severe Acute Respiratory and Emerging Infection Consortium (ISARIC; international), Mahidol Oxford Tropical Medicine Research Unit (MORU; Thailand), Makerere University College of Health Sciences (Uganda), Monash University (Australia), Muhimbili University of Health & Allied Sciences (Tanzania), NICS-MORU (Sri Lanka), University of British Columbia (Canada), University College London (UK), University of Edinburgh (UK), World Health Organization (international) Ziauddin University (Pakistan)

Bringing together the expertise of researchers and clinicians based across low- and middle-income countries and partners from established critical care and pandemic networks internationally, this project aims to address the knowledge gaps that exist in the natural history and clinical course of COVID-19 related critical illness in Africa. Knowledge gaps and underlying operational gaps will be identified by implementing a setting-adapted registry for service evaluation and pandemic research in seven countries across Africa. Leveraging the registry data, and led by healthcare stakeholders, the researchers will identify priorities for improving processes of care for the sickest patients. Once established, the same registry platform will support trials to identify strategies for optimal supportive care and interventions in the management of critically ill patients.

“Without data we cannot engage in research, and without research we have no voice.” Prof Madiha Hashmi, co-investigator, Ziauddin University, Pakistan”
