WILLIAM LIGHT IN INDIA
A new joint course the Wound Management Resource Program.
The William Light Institute and the Hyderabad based Apollo Medskills have launched a new joint course the Wound Management Resource Program.
William Light Institute CEO Greg Black said, ‘ In India, a high incidence of traffic accidents and life style diseases particularly diabetes means that wound care has become a major health challenge for the country. The William Light Institute has designed a practical, hands- on course that utilises world’s best practice and will be delivered in India with Apollo Medskills. The Wound Management Resource Program has industry endorsements from the Australian College of Nursing, Australian Primary Health Care Nurses Association and the European Wound Management Association. The initial target audience for the course are degree level nurses, with emergency services workers, podiatrists, GP’s and armed forces medical officers to be considered in the future’
‘Initial response to the launch has been excellent and we are planning a roll-out across India over the next 12 months’ he said.
Since 2016 William Light has been working with Apollo Medskills the training arm of the Apollo Hospitals Group which is the biggest private health organisation in Asia. Apollo Medskills has 24 learning centres across India with over 100000 students in its courses. The Indian Government has invested in Apollo Medskills in recognition of the quality of its educational offerings.’
‘Having a local partner is critical to success in India and Apollo Medskills size, reach and commitment to quality is a great fit for us. I am also very positive about the future as we are already in discussions with Apollo about an exciting range of new courses.’
‘I would also like to thank Austrade’s Hyderabad office and particularly Sangeetha Krishnamoorthy Business Development Manager who has provided great support and guidance to this program’ said Mr Black.
