New training program for health inspectors
Dubai, January 2, 2011
Dubai Judicial Institute (DJI) recently launched a new program specially designed to train and qualify governmental inspectors in the Ministry of Health who are responsible for enforcing medical regulations and handling breaches in health law.
A leading center for legal studies and judicial training in Dubai, the DJI said the move is in line with its strategic plan and overall methodology on the development of world-class training programs.
The new program aims to provide the Ministry of Health’s legal officers with scientifically-based legal skills and knowledge, said a DJI statement.
This will ensure the implementation of medical laws in a manner that complements efforts to develop legal and judicial system and build an integrated knowledge-based community as well as reinforce social, economic, health, environmental and cultural development.
It reflects the Institute’s commitment to implementing shared learning methods based on established teaching principles and employing the best training tools and techniques to provide legal practitioners with the high levels of experience and knowledge needed to keep pace with local, regional and international trends and practices.
The initiative is based on proven standards for better understanding and enhancing all the dimensions and laws of the health administration process.
It will cover all the necessary legal, human and vocational aspects by focusing on Federal Law No. 10 of 2008 which covers medical liability, the activities of the higher committee of medical liability and the liability investigation process undergone by professional practitioners and insurance firms.
The program will also analyze Federal Law no. 11 of 2008 on the licensing of domestic fertility centers. It will discuss articles related to government fertility centers, the resolution of motions to terminate the operations of a fertility center, how to obtain licenses, and the improvement of the conditions of such centers.
Commenting on the program, Dr Jamal Al Sumaiti, DJI director general, said the launch of this new program for the Ministry of Health completes the series of successful training programs we have designed for governmental inspectors, Dubai Courts, Military Judiciary, the Ministry of Labor and other major government bodies.
'Our training initiatives advance our vision of investing substantially in human capital and developing vocational qualification and training programs that boost the efficiency and legal knowledge of practitioners within the judicial and justice systems,' he added.-TradeArabia News Service
