An instructor at the Faculty of Medicine at Chiang Mai University recently received an award for “Outstanding in Emergency Medicine” for 2015 by the by National Institute of Emergency Medical at Bangkok International Trade and Exhibition Centre (BITEC) after all assessments were surveyed.

Asst. Prof. Dr. Narain Chotirodniramit, Deputy Director of Maharaj Nakorn Chiang Mai Hospital said that in 2015 he had the opportunity to work with the National Institute of Emergency Medicine; the Institute is in charge of emergency medicine focusing on standard development of injured patient’s care or emergency patients needing urgent treatment. He worked with the National Institute of Emergency Medicine for three years and Royal College of Surgeons of Thailand; he has been in charge of three major works consisting of training of Advanced Trauma Life Support: ATLS which is standard curriculum world-wide used to cure injured patients in Emergency Room.

Currently he holds the position of Director of International Curriculum under Commission of Royal College of Surgeons of Thailand in charge of standards for caring for injured patients in an Emergency Room (ER).

He said that care of the injured patient should start from the accident and not just in the ER and that medical teams providing care should receive further training in such treatments. He added that the ATLS course during the early period was not enough to care for injured patient. In 2014, he wrote an international standard curriculum called “Pre-hospital Trauma Life Support: PHTLS” to present to the Commission of Royal College of Surgeons of Thailand, it is a training course for patient care at the site of the accident. Medical teams in charge of caring for injured patients on the road, such as rescue physicians and nurses benefit from this course. Previously, the emergency patient care system in Thailand was adapted from a course used overseas about 10 years ago which had misunderstanding in some subjects. Therefore, he coordinated with the program administrator in America with financial support from the Royal Institution of Surgeons of Thailand and National Institute of Emergency Medical to send six physicians to attend training overseas. Moreover, it was the first time to bring qualified people abroad to teach in Thailand. It was the beginning of official use of the PHTLS course in Thailand at the end of 2015. Additionally, training for physicians, nurses and teams in charge of caring injured patients outside hospital have undergone training and more to come.

He was also appointed as chairman of training assessment for paramedics. Previously, emergency care for injured patients was mainly operated by physicians and nurses who were trained to provide care in hospital and were not familiar with caring for injured patient outside hospital where it was limited with resources. Paramedics graduating with a Bachelor’s Degree will be key to providing care before arriving at the hospital. Presently, he has held position of Chairman of Committees evaluating these training attendees on behalf of National Institute of Emergency Medical. With this commission, the training has become concrete and standardized.

Because of his work in improving Emergency Medical standards Asst. Prof. Dr. Narain Chotirodniramit was awarded Outstanding in Emergency Medical 2015 which he accepted with gratitude on behalf of the Faculty of Medicine at Chiang Mai University.
