Nortal Fund: providing new simulation equipment for Ukrainian doctors

November 17 marks World Prematurity Day which aims to raise awareness of preterm birth and the impact it has on families. This year, our office in Ukraine supported Danylo Halytsky Lviv National Medical University to purchase simulation equipment for the training of Ukrainian doctors. The equipment will be used to learn emergency care and resuscitation of newborns and infants.

The war has increased stress levels, causing the risk of premature birth among Ukrainian women. Therefore, the issue of thorough practical training of doctors who will take care of various complex and emergency cases became extremely important. „Improving the quality of medical education is important both in peace- and wartime, and we are glad to have joined the development of the simulation center in Lviv,“ commented Rostyslav Shchepan, Managing Director in Ukraine. 

Starting next year, more than 500 pediatric and family medicine interns, training cycles audience in neonatology, pediatric anesthesiology, obstetrics and gynecology, general practice and family medicine specialties, as well as interns, graduate students, researchers, and medical professionals, will use it annually to learn emergency care and resuscitation of newborns and infants.  

“Thanks to Nortal, our university will receive an infant manikin and special equipment for simulating heart rhythm disturbances, on which future neonatologists will study resuscitation techniques and perform manipulations under various scenarios“, said Maria Kiselyova, neonatologist, pediatrician, Doctor of Medicine, professor, pediatrician, and head of the Department of Pediatrics and Neonatology, Faculty of Postgraduate Education of the Danylo Halytsky LNMU. She added that the prototype of the child contains devices that, depending on the actions of the intern doctor and the observer doctor, will give different signals and show what different manipulations lead to. Therefore, training will take place faster and more efficiently, improving the quality of care in practical situations. 

Nortal Fund was launched at the beginning of March 2022 to provide direct help for our Ukrainain colleagues and their families. Additionally, the Fund supports local projects that benefit the development of Ukraine.
