Platforms provide health care professionals access to medical and educational learning resources.
Dubai Health Authority (DHA) has launched online medical education platforms, during the ongoing Gitex Technology Week. Platforms provide health care professionals access to medical and educational learning resources.
The first online system is “highly interactive” and is known as DARB, says DHA. It is a digital platform that provides local doctors with academic support. They can contact their instructors and program directors regarding their assignments and raise questions.
Currently, five technologies are available under this program, “which includes more than 60 percent of students under the residency program”.
DHA has said it will introduce additional technology and participatory programs and student schemes “in phases” over two years.
This digital learning management platform will provide comprehensive online support for medical professionals and health care providers. MANAAR stands for Increased Medical and Nutrition Increase and Individual Source and is a “state of the art technology”.
Under the platform, all healthcare providers across the UAE can create an account and benefit from a collaborative learning program. They can access many of the accredited training programs in Dubai.
Dr Wadeia Mohammad Sharief, Director of the Department of Research and Research at DHA, said: “Continuing medical education is important and we at DHA have a desire to provide medical students and staff who are interested in further education through a powerful digital learning platform.”
