Growing with Sino-France Emergency Medicine Training
Mei Xue, Doctor of Medicine, is Deputy Director of the Emergency Department of Beijing Chaoyang Hospital affiliated to Capital Medical University. Engaged in emergency treatment for 18 years, he has rich experience in clinical critical diseases rescue and teaching. Funded by the public medical programme of Total corporate social responsibility, Mei Xue went to France from 2004 to 2005 for further study at the Universite Pierre et Marie Curie (Pierre and Marie Curie University) and the Emergency Department of Pitié-Salpretière Hospital as well as the Paris SAMU (emergency centre). Back in China, he became a teacher at the Sino-France Emergency Medicine Training Centre in 2009 and conducted training for Chinese emergency doctors.
Sino-France Emergency Medicine Training Centre in Beijing
As a part of Total’s fulfilment of corporate social responsibility, Sino-France Emergency Medicine Training Centre is jointly built by the Beijing Municipal Commission of Health and Family Planning, the French Embassy in China, the Total Group, the Paris Public Hospital Group and Beijing Anzhen Hospital, aiming at improving the management of the Beijing emergency system and business of emergency personnel, and further perfecting the emergency medical service system. Total (China) acts as the main contributor of this project, and takes charge of inviting French experts to give lessons in China.
“The emergency departments in China usually lack a unified and normative rescue flow. But the pre-hospital emergency treatment system (SAMU) is relatively mature, especially its emergency system and emergency process. Sino-France Training Centre, aimed at our shortcomings, has provided a normative training course for the doctors at the frontline of emergency treatment in Beijing.” Mei Xue said.
Simulation Training: the Latest Teaching Method for Doctors
Simulation training is still at the initial stage in China. Advanced medical simulation training is a new type of medical teaching method. Sponsored by Total Group, the training centre has purchased advanced SimMan 3G of the latest generation, and invited advanced emergency medicine simulation experts from France to attend the teacher training. “This simulation system is able to simulate the physiological status of normal people and the realistic scenes of rescuing , which is quite useful in cultivating practical experience for young doctors the future. They will grow steady with future practice.”
“The leader plays a crucial role in rescuing patients at emergency sites, simulation training fosters a leaders who are responsible for leading the team to cure patients efficiently and promptly, seizing every minute and second to save lives. I think this training is of great significance.” introduced Mei Xue.
Cultivate Local Experts and Impart Knowledge & Methods
At the initial stage, Mei Xue and more than 30 Chinese doctors from the emergency department had been sent to study and work in France for one year. Since 2008 when the training centre was founded, 66 famous experts in the Chinese and French emergency treatment fields have been invited to give lessons for over 2,500 class hours and have trained more than 7,500 medical personnel.
In 2009, Mei Xue became a Chinese teacher at the China-French training centre. At present, five batches of Chinese simulation teachers have been trained in the training centre, and they have provided simulation training many times in the training centre and been spoken highly of by the students.
