Transitioning to the second day of the workshop, participants were enriched with insightful presentations and in-depth discussions, expertly facilitated by officials from the National Health Authority (NHA). The agenda included pivotal topics such as Health Benefit Packages (HBP), Standard Treatment Guidelines (STGs), Hospital Quality – Accreditation and Certification, Hospital Empanelment Module, and the Central Grievance Redressal System (CGRMS). Esteemed professors from the National Institute of Health and Family Welfare (NIHFW) in New Delhi delivered highly engaging, thought-provoking, and interactive sessions, covering a spectrum of vital topics including facilitation and training skills, soft skills, communication barriers, and micro-teaching.
This carefully selected cohort from the Northeast states has now transitioned into the second cohort of ‘Master Trainers.’ Their pivotal role involves disseminating enriched knowledge and insights within their regions, serving as beacons in nurturing capacities to navigate the intricacies of the Ayushman Bharat AB PM-JAY scheme.
