Mumbai, Nov 24 (IANS) To mark the 4th anniversary of the 26/11 terror attacks, Mumbai's Bombay Hospital organised a training programme in anti−terror and trauma care for all medical, nursing and paramedical staff.

Organised in association with the Association of Medical Consultants (AMC), the programme aimed to help create a doctors' protocol for handling such attacks, provide training to paramedical staff, pre−and−post trauma counselling to patients, and to create education and awareness so that the public will be the eyes and ears and act during an emergency before the medical team can arrive.

The programme is a part of the anti−terror forum launched by the Bombay Hospital in 2008 to mark the 26/11 terror attacks.

"As a part of the programme, a panel discussion was organised where members from all strata of society debated the role of the public in disasters, since they are often the first responders in such situations," said M.M. Begani, senior consultant at the hospital.

A symposium at the event also discussed the role of the hospital sector, the media and the NGOs in disaster management.

The interactive session was followed by training in basic life support for all medical, nursing and paramedical staff as well as first responders to the programme.
