It is possible to use materials that are made here,” Dr. Harvey said.In addition to the use of local alternative material as a structural shield for diagnostic radiological facilities, some of the other topics discussed during the conference dealt with team-building exercises for doctors and nurses working in the Accident and Emergency units, and educating the GPHC female patients on the correct approach and practices in relation to cervical cancer.According to the Department of Public Information, the conference, hosted under the theme “Transforming Health Care: Celebrating 10 years of residency education and research in Guyana”, attracted more than 200 local medical practitioners and overseas associates.last_img read more
