"Time Churao" campaign: "Steal" time out of your busy schedule

Almost everybody today complains of lack of time..."There is so much to do and too little time to do". Everybody seems to be busier than ever. Well, being a doctor is not an easy job, it's also a busy job. Being a doctor also means multifaceted responsibilities. A doctor not only has to treat his patients, he is also a teacher, researcher, manager, communicator, community leader.
Health education is an important component of the duties and responsibilities of a doctor. It has a direct link to patient satisfaction. However, in a busy practice, doctors often lack the time to educate their patients and families about different health-related issues. Juggling both practice and home often leaves doctors with no time left for community health activities. 
Here is what I do.
Whenever I am invited to a function and the chief guest is running late, I ask the organizers for the mike and start 'zero hour'.

National President IMA & HCFI

IMA delegation visits and congratulates the newly elected President of India
The Association is hopeful of some positive changes in the healthcare scenario in the country under the President's leadership

New Delhi, 22 July 2017: An IMA delegation led by its National President, Dr K K Aggarwal, visited the newly elected 14th President of India, Shri Ram Nath Kovind. The visit was aimed towards not only congratulating the President but also to take a step ahead in working together for the betterment of the medical profession. IMA has since long been actively fighting to restore the nobility and dignity of the medical profession and recently concluded the Dilli Chalo movement to voice the concerns of the fraternity at large.
Both India's healthcare sector and the medical fraternity have many challenges to address. Not only is there a dearth of adequate doctors but the existing ones also face issues such as violence at the hands of the public. All this requires urgent consideration and by meeting the President, the IMA hoped to make a head start to address them.
