About The Project
IIHMR Bangalore validated the Mobile Medical Van safety manual, which would play a vital role in the education and training of Mobile Medical Van staff/team members for ensuring the utmost safety of the van, equipment, personnel, and service provisioning. The processes of review and manual revision consisted of the following processes: 1. Review of the current/existing manual 2. Compare with best practices at the national and international level (safety manual features); and 3. Cross consultations with industry experts for input on guidelines. Gaps identified included those of patient safety, staff safety and legal/operational adherence mechanisms. Gaps identified included those of patient safety, staff safety, and legal/operational adherence mechanisms.
