Electronic medical record
This is essential in producing a reliable and permanent data for the hospital ( Allan, S. 2011).
Paradise international Hotel, New York.
The seminar should last for one week. It should run for 5 days. Each day 6 hours. This means that the attendants will have to dedicate 30 hours for the training.
I would like to suggest that all the participants in this conference should be provided with adequate refreshments. I suggest that they should be served cold drink with 0% alcohol content. There should be all brands of juice, beverages, sodasif this is done; attendants’ diverse tastes and preferences will be accommodated.
Costs of attendance:
I would like to suggest that attendance should be open to all the medical stakeholders in this hospital: senior management, junior officers, doctors, nurses, trainees, subordinates and the general public. In order to conform to the international standards, I suggest that it will be reasonable to charge the attendants based on the role they will be playing. The charges should be levied as follows:
- Key note speakers: US $. 20
- Presenters: US $. 15
- Participants: US $. 10
I suggest that this seminar should be attended by reputable presenters who are renown authorities in the various areas they will be granted an opportunity to give a presentation (Canfild, J.L. and J. Swtzer, 2005). They should be trained professionals with a wealth of experience on public speaking and the use of the Microsoft Power Point, an essential tool that will be used throughout the seminar. I therefore recommend the following experts:
- Dr. J.M. Kennah, PhD Speaking skills
- Ms. Mary Nahodha Role of non verbal communication in medicine
I suggested slightly higher costs for the seminar because the money will be used in purchasing various materials required during the seminar sessions. I therefore that the following materials should be provided during the seminar:
- Power points
- Flash Disks
- Diverse menu
- Seminar bags
- Stationary- booklet and a pen
- Seminar program bulletin
- Room keys
- List and citations of the facilitators and
- Evaluation forms
Evaluation of the presenters
I think the success of this seminar will not be attained if no proper evaluation is conducted on the entire session. More importantly, the presenters should be rigorously evaluated based on their conducts observed within and out of the seminar halls ( Wilberg, P. Heidegger, 1996).
I therefore suggest that this should be done through the installation of the Closed Circuit Televisions (CCTvs). Besides, the attendees should be interviewed through the use of well designed evaluation forms or oral interviews. Through this, the organizers and the management will, have a clear picture of whatever happened.
I think this is the most important bit that if not done, may negatively affect the success of such other inductions if future. Hence, it is paramount to assert that the whole exercise should be judged. Time should be created to offer both the formative and summative evaluation to clearly gauge the success of the process (Heidegger, M. 2001).
Apart from the use of the CCTvs, interviews and the use of questionnaires, this team should go a mile to carry out a direct observation on the attendees’ contentment on the choice of the venue, accommodation, food, duration and the general organization of the seminar.
After doing all these and ascertaining the successes of this seminar, I would suggest that the next session be conducted in the same place after 90 days. This will undoubtedly refresh these employees.
