LLI-224 Improving Accessibility of Quality Medical Care While strengthening Institutional Capacity and Cooperation in the Cross-border Region Zarasai-Daugavpils (QUALITY MEDICAL CARE)

The growth of national centralisation of medical services has left remote border areas, such as Zarasai district, detached from national centres of quality medical care. Due to far locations emergency medical care is not sufficient to provide timely aid, with closest ones being from 48 to 148 km away. Although people from Zarasai can receive active treatment or get professional consultations in a qualified medical facility in Vilnius the waiting often takes three to six weeks.
The overall objective of the project is to improve accessibility of quality medical care through strengthening institutional capacity and cooperation between medical institutions in the cross-border region Zarasai-Daugavpils.
As a main project output cross-border cooperation framework between Zarasai Primary Healthcare Centre and Daugavpils Regional Hospital will be created.

In order to ensure accessibility and service quality of emergency medical care an ambulance vehicle for Zarasai Emergency Service unit will be purchased. Seeking to improve quality of urgent medical care services the Daugavpils Regional Hospital will be equipped with thromboelastometry system, portable ventilator, video laryngoscope and video intubation system, thus increasing its capacities as a cross-border qualified medical service provider. For constant improvement of emergency care training manikins will be provided, cross-border disaster simulation and disaster management strategy and operational guidelines prepared.
Finally people from Zarasai district will be able to receive quality medical services in the distance of just 25 km in Daugavpils Regional Hospital which will update its capacities to provide even better medical care.

LLI-224 First aid training for citizens in Zarasai and Daugavpils

16 First aid trainings for citizens held in Zarasai and Daugavpils by project partners.  More than 700 people trained in CBC region Zarasai-Daugvipls.

The training included both: instruction and practical training.

Certain skills are considered essential to the provision of first aid and are taught ubiquitously. Particularly the “ABC”s of first aid, which focus on critical life-saving intervention, must be rendered before treatment of less serious injuries. ABC stands for AirwayBreathing, and Circulation. During the training participants themselves had to  practice chest compressions (and thus providing artificial circulation) and pulse checks, also Heimlich maneuver procedure used to treat upper airway abstractions (or choking) by foreign objects.

All the participants received a free first aid certificate.
