St. John’s Medical Training Camp 2019

St. John’s Medical Training Camp was held recently at the Ananda Sasthralaya, Kotte. The medical camp was organised in association with St. John’s Ambulance and the Sri Jayewardenapura Municipal Council Fire Service Department for selected students from Grades six to 10 in Kotte region schools. The camp trained students on disaster management, fire service, patient management, handling and the usage of medical equipment, such as stethoscopes and blood pressure monitors.

D.H.D. Jayamini from the Colombo National Hospital, Accident Service Unit, ICU 1 and D.A.D. Priyangani from the Accident Service Theatre of the Colombo National Hospital trained the students. The motive of the camp was to give knowledge to students on handling, usage and identifying medical equipment, to face disaster management situations and to build up dreams and ambitions to work in the medical sector.
