JAMMU, Aug 8: A three-day workshop on ‘First Aid and First Medical Responders’ concluded today at University of Kashmir (KU).
KU Vice-Chancellor, Prof Khurshid Iqbal Andrabi, presided over the valedictory function. He called for organizing more such skill development programmes to equip student volunteers with the essentials of First Aid.
The training programme was organized by the varsity’s Department of Law in collaboration with the Indian Red Cross Society, J&K Chapter.
While speaking on the occasion, Prof Andrabi said the University proposes to establish a paramedical institute at its South Campus in Anantnag. “Therefore training programmes of this kind would certainly help us supplement the proposed institute with skilled volunteers and skilled manpower,” he added.
Head of the Law Department, Prof Mohammad Ayub, dwelt at length on the aims and objectives of the training programme. “We held this workshop as part of the University’s social responsibility in order to equip our students with the basics of First Aid,” he said.
During the three-day workshop, the student participants were trained in handling various Cardiac and Respiratory emergencies, injuries, wounds and fractures, head and spine injuries, burns and electric shocks, recovery position, safe handling and transportation of injured.
Dr Mohammad Hussain, senior faculty at the Department of Law, presented the vote of thanks.
