Patient Experience, although it has been around for as long as one can imagine, has shaped up as a tangible area of healthcare of late. This has emerged out of the realization that the way the patient experiences and perceives the care given to her is a critical determinant of the quality offered by the healthcare system.
Patient Experience goes beyond processes and protocols. It is centered round that immeasurable element of empathy, which lies at the core of the whole idea of caregiving.

Patient Safety has been around for long, but has gained prominence as a specialized area of healthcare in about the last couple of decades. Patient Safety is the coordination of all functions and inputs needed for ensuring that the patient’s life is made secure to the extent possible.
This is all the more important in cases of medical emergency such as accidents, when more than anything else, Patient Safety has to be made available to ensure that the patient survives. At the core of Patient Safety lies the principle that medical errors of all kinds have to be minimized if the patient has to be safe. What started developing in response to the shocking number of patient deaths caused by medical negligence has since developed into a full-fledged, specialized area of healthcare. The World Health Organization has been organizing several campaigns and research into how Patient Safety can be ensured across the globe.
Given its enormous strength in the field of healthcare continuing professional education; MentorHealth has the right resources in ensuring that healthcare professionals get the best access to enriching their knowledge of Patient Safety. As a result of MentorHealth’s trainings, healthcare professionals are better equipped to handle all aspects relating to Patient Safety.

Although it originated in the west as an alternative form of medication over 200 years back; homeopathic medication has been generally relegated here and is better accepted in the east. The major reservations against homeopathy are its perceived lack of effectiveness and clinical foundations, since it is derived from plants, animals and minerals.
However, homeopathic remedies are regulated by the FDA. Over four million people use homeopathic medication in the US. Americans spend about $ 3 billion annually on homeopathy. Being a complementary system of medicine that is growing at a rapid pace, it calls for some understanding of its functions.

Internal medicine: Internal medicine is described as the medical specialty dealing with the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of adult diseases. It is thus understood from this definition that internal medicine is a vast area that encompasses a huge array of diseases and conditions. Internists, or physicians who specialize in internal medicine, are thus expected to be multi-skilled professionals who deal with patients with undifferentiated or multi-system disease processes. This is all the truer if one considers the fact that they not only deal with patients who are inside hospitals, but also those in ambulatory services. In addition, internists also teach and conduct research in their area of specialization. It is for this reason that training is highly essential for such professionals. We impart training on various aspects of their profession.
Gone are the days of primitive surgery, when it was carried out in unhygienic conditions. Today’s surgeries are scientific, precise and thorough. Our experts impart training on a wide range of surgical specializations. We offer training on:

It is for the patient and the surgeon to decide on whether to go ahead with the surgery. Our experts offer training on the nature of these surgeries and the benefits and pitfalls associated with these, so that taking a decision becomes easier.
Required surgery: This is a kind of surgery that is done to improve the well-being of the patient.

It is in areas like this that we can be of assistance.
Urgent surgery: What if a person has had a myocardial infarction, or to use a layman’s terms, a heart attack? There is no time to debate the pros and cons of a surgery.

It is complex in that it is the only kind of surgery that involves the actual transplant of an organ, while all other such surgeries involve the use of tissues. Our experts help you get advice on the intricacies of transplant surgery.
