The Registrar of Takoradi Technical University, Dr. Moses Maclean Abnory, has urged health personnel at the University Health Centre to ensure their training reflect in the health delivery services for the expected benefit of staff and students of the University.
Dr. Abnory gave the advice when speaking at a workshop organized by the Health Directorate of TTU for all its workers.
While expressing the importance of capacity building for workers especially health workers due to the important role they play in the country and for that matter, on the campus of TTU, Dr. Abnory bemoaned the insignificant impact from such many workshops at the workplace.
He expressed the hope that the Health Directorate organized workshop will not be like the usual ones but participants will pay attention and use the knowledge that would be acquired to improve their systems.
“it is important because the tools and equipment used by the sector continues to change and as staff at the TTU health centre, you have to be abreast with the new trends in the sector” he said.
With the new skills to be acquired at the workshop, Dr. Abnory asked to the staff
to ensure the University Health Centre see improvement in its health delivery before they leave the scene.
“this is the time to aspire to inspire before you expire”, he emphasized.
Director of the University Health Centre, Dr. George Kojo Owusu while opening the training programme said the purpose of the training is because of the dynamic nature of health delivery hence they
have to be abreast with current trends in healthcare. He added that since their work involve other people, there is the need to train to sharpen their human relation skills, work ethics as well as meet legal snd regulatory standards.
On his part, the Pro Vice-Chancellor of TTU, Prof. Victor Kweku Bondzie Micah expressed Management’s appreciation for the work of the health workers but further pleaded with them to work hard to move the centre to an appreciable level.
