IMA Podcast: Stop violence against doctors!

The second episode of IMA’s podcast series Wealth Of Health is about the dire need to Stop Violence Against Doctors. It features Dr Ravi Wankhedkar, Past National President, Indian Medical Association, and Dr Jayesh Lele, National Secretary, Indian Medical Association Hospital Board of India, who discuss the terrible menace of violence against doctors, the reasons for the growth of this scourge of the medical space in India, and how it can be controlled and hopefully ended

Voluntary, not-for-profit body Indian Medical Association — the only representative voluntary organization of Doctors of Modern Scientific System of Medicine, and which looks after the interest of doctors as well as the well being of the community at large – had launched its podcast series, Wealth of Health, on the 26th of March on World TB Day.

And now, this forward-thinking and –acting body, which, to our mind, is probably the first representative,  not-for-profit voluntary body that has launched a podcast – has released its second episode of its series. And this, the second episode, is entitled Stop Violence Against Doctors!. It features  two senior and reputed doctors — Dr Ravi Wankhedkar, Past National President, Indian Medical Association, and Dr Jayesh Lele, National Secretary, Indian Medical Association Hospital Board of India, who discuss the terrible menace of violence against doctors, the reasons for the growth of this scourge of the medical space in India, and how it can be controlled and hopefully ended.

LISTEN TO THE EPISODE HERE:

Here are two doctors who are, as with all doctors, are expert medical practitioners first, and then, equally passionate advocates of reform and better thinking and social mores against the ills and evils that beset public health and medical practitioner safety. They are not professional presenters, but their conviction and passion adds a very likeable dimension to their very naturally conversational style.

Good, useful, actionable information, well presented.

Listen in, in the player above. Or listen to the episode on YouTube.

As  IMA National President Dr Sen says, “On behalf of the Indian Medical Association, we urge you to not only listen to, but also share our podcast episodes with doctors and other medical health professionals and members of the society.”

So, Episode 2 of Wealth of Health, the IMA’s Podcast series, is an excellent piece of content that should definitely help spread the word about the need to end the terrible menace of Violence Against Doctors.
