Sergey Antipov, General Director of the Center of Corporate Medicine, made a presentation on Russian industrial medicine at the 32nd International Congress on Occupational Health, held in Dublin.
More than 2.5 thousand people from all over the world — Africa, Asia, Australia, America, Russia, and Europe — took part in the congress. Russia was represented by two speakers – the director of the Research Institute of Occupational Medicine N.F. Izmerova and CCM CEO Sergey Antipov .
"We were invited to perform by the organizers of the congress and this is a great honor, recognition of our company as a world-class expert. My report mainly concerned the provision of medical care at remote sites in Siberia and the Arctic zone. Also, I have pointed out the existing problems of industrial medicine in Russia and the ways to solve them, as we see it in the framework of our company's activities, "said Antipov .
According to Antipov, today there are two main problems: the lack of a clear regulatory and legal framework for medical activities at remote sites and the lack of a system for training qualified personnel to work at remote sites.
"In order to consolidate efforts to solve the problems of remote health care and other urgent problems, last November we created the Association of Remote Health Care, which is the integration of science and business. Also, together with our strategic partner, the Siberian State Medical University, since last fall, we began to train qualified medical personnel in remote health care, "said Antipov .
As a result of participation in the congress, the director of CCM was invited to the presentation of the opening faculty on the study of remote health care problems and the training of specialized personnel at the University of Edinburgh in May.
"In the future, this may develop our cooperation, they want to have Russian partners. Together we can create a joint program, the Scots need some kind of training base, which we have with SSMU . This is our simulation center "Arctic Medical Training ", which since 2015 has been successfully conducting training on international first aid courses at remote sites," said Antipov.
The presentation of the faculty is scheduled for May 25-28. Antipov also noted that today Scotland is considered to be a leading country in the health sector.
