first_imgThe Deputy Minister-Designate of the Ministry of Health, Dr. Francis Nah Kateh, has urged laboratory technicians in Liberia to help make a difference in the profession.Speaking on Wednesday at a Lab Week Conference held at the Monrovia City Hall, Dr. Kateh told lab technicians that their roles in building a resilient health system in the country is critical and must involve research.“We want to urge you to use Face Book for learning, focusing particularly your weaknesses and not your successes. Use Face Book  to correct the little things that you forget about and be able to make progress,” he stressed.According to him, efforts by technicians and other health workers would help in supporting the government and its partners in building a resilient health system for Liberia, considering the impact of the deadly Ebola virus in the lives of the people and on the country at large.“You cannot have a clinic, or hospital if we don’t have lab technicians to provide the necessary lab results for treatment. This is one of the reasons that make your area very important.”  He further said that as a clinician, it is important to have the right equipment in order to produce the right diagnoses to treat patients.Dr. Kateh noted that without continued education in such a critical area as health, lab technicians stand to forget some of the basic things that are cardinal to  providing better services  to patients. “A simple information error by a clinician can create untold consequences,” he warned, noting that it is important for lab  technicians always to be on top of their profession.  Dr. Karteh is also Chief Medical Officer at the Jackson F. Doe Hospital in Tappita, Nimba County.Contributing, Dr. Patrick Kpanyen called on the government and its partners to invest in research, particularly in laboratory technicians to get a functional sector to benefit patients.According to him, investing in this field would support a better health system benefitting to the people, adding that the human capacity must be seen as one of the best ways to build the country’s health system.“We need to invest in lab research,  especially in lab diagnostics education,” he suggested. Many of these people have the potential and we need also to help them  graduate from certificate to diploma and beyond, in order to enable them to realize their dreams.”   Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
