Past week marked the start of a long-awaited project for the “Unite with Ukraine” initiative. A group of six Ukrainian doctors arrived in Brazil for training at the best clinic in Latin America.
Since arriving in São Paulo, we have been thrown into a whirlwind of exciting tasks and challenges. Our focus has been on learning and mastering the techniques of medical content delivery. We aim to grasp as much information as possible, which we can later convey or implement back home in Ukraine. At the same time, we feel a strong sense of responsibility to represent our country honorably, to share our experience honestly, and to convey information correctly to everyone we interact with here, regardless of their level. It’s a true ‘Deep Dive’! We’re grateful for the incredible support, empathy, and respect we receive from the medical professionals at the Albert Einstein Hospital during each meeting. Olesya Vynnyk , the head of medical initiatives for the project, shares these sentiments.
During the first five days of training, the program covered various aspects of pre-hospital patient evacuation. The sessions included safety principles, basics of trauma kinematics, evacuation and casualty management, XABCDE algorithm, evacuation transport basics, aeromedical tasks, refining skills in working with burn patients, drowning, disaster medicine, work in the interventional radiology department, eFAST, and RUSH protocols. In addition, the trainees participated in simulations for triage organization, ambulance deployments with actors, and theoretical and hands-on practice.
The doctors have a whole month of training ahead of them, and they are committed to growing professionally and helping the medical community in Brazil appreciate Ukraine. The doctors are prepared to give their utmost to achieve this goal.
