Lviv Medical College of Postgraduate Education was the first in Ukraine to introduce a cycle of specialization of nurses in rehabilitation

On December 20, the Lviv Medical Professional College of Postgraduate Education held the graduation of the students of the specialization cycle of medical nurse / medical brother in rehabilitation.

43 trainees – practicing nurses and nurses from various medical institutions of Lviv and the region – completed the training. This is the second release since the beginning of the academic year. Training takes place over two months, after which trainees take an exam and receive a certificate of completion of the specialization cycle.

“Today we have to change very quickly, introduce new things and learn,” says the director of the college, Lesya Vovk. – At the demand of the time, we implemented specialization in rehabilitation for junior medical personnel.

We have moved away from the online education format, because we understand well that medicine and the training of medical workers should take place thanks to practical skills, in particular on mannequins, simulators, in classrooms.

Today, rehabilitation in our country needs more and more specialists, so we decided to introduce such a new course.”

According to Lesya Vovk, introducing this specialization, the college had to study a lot, seek the experience of foreign colleagues, because no one has taught this in Ukraine until now.

“We have prepared a program in which each trainee must acquire practical skills in caring for a patient in a hospital, ostomy patients, with spinal and brain injuries, perform bladder catheterization, measure blood pressure on the lower extremities, if there are no upper extremities, record a cardiogram on amputated limb, care for patients with eye injuries. The program is being improved, supplemented with new directions, and has even attracted the interest of medical institutions from other regions, which would also like to implement it in themselves,” said Lesya Vovk.

Liliya Yakymets, the deputy director of educational work at the post-graduate education department, said that during training there is an exchange of experience between teachers and practicing medical workers who come to the college to improve their practical skills, and teachers draw from them information that needs to be developed in the educational process.
