Mumbai: India is reeling under Coronavirus. During pandemics like coronavirus when it is not possible to step out, Zen Multispecialty, Chembur organized a free CME on Liver diseases as Hepatitis B,C, liver cancer,  viral hepatitis, approach to liver function test, jaundice, Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), Alcoholic liver disease (ALD) and complications of chronic liver. 1,000 family physicians from all over India logged in and attended the interactive and educative sessions, and learned how to manage liver diseases efficiently. CME was under supervision of Dr Meghraj Ingle, head gastroenterology dept, Zen along with Dr Aniruddha Phadke from Lilavati Hospital and Dr Mandot from Bombay Hospital. The attendees were given a certificate of participation and even a medical exam was conducted for them.

 

Liver disease (hepatic disease) is any disease that negatively impacts the normal, healthy performance of the liver. Different types of liver disorders include hepatitis, liver cancer, Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), Alcoholic liver disease (ALD), cirrhosis and liver tumours can be life-threatening and may require timely intervention. Today, the number of people suffering from liver disorders is rising at a rapid rate. Zen Hospital, Chembur, Mumbai took an interesting initiative to educate the physicians and reduce the increasing burden of liver diseases. The hospital is committed to serve the patients and improve their quality of life.

 

Dr Roy Patankar, Director of Zen Multispecialty, highlighted, “The master class in hepatology was lauded and attended by around 1,000 family physicians all over the country. There will be 2 speakers in each session who educated about different liver diseases. The CME will go on for 3 weeks, every Thursday, for half-an-hour followed by a Q&A session. The attendees will be issued a certificate of participation and medical examination will be conducted at the end of the course. Also, complicated case studies will be presented in every session, and links will also be given for the reference. We also intend to conduct CMEs on kidney disease and heart ailments in the near future.”

 

Dr Patankar added, “It is clear that this pandemic has utterly disrupted everything. Now, since the entire country is under lockdown, it will be a good opportunity for people to impart themselves with knowledge by sitting at their homes, and learn everything via just a click, and online learning is here to stay. This is the future of medical education. It is incumbent upon all of us to explore its full potential.”
