Educational activities in COVID-19

Since the start of the Corona pandemic in January 2020, Baqiyatallah University of Medical Sciences has conducted educational initiatives throughout the province of Tehran related to this subject in accordance with the guidelines set forth by the Ministry of Health and Medical Education. Some of these programs include the following:

  • Online patients’ assistance and respond to inquiries.
  • Development of education and awareness campaigns across Tehran about the various stages of the disease and how it is produced, as well as the distribution of educational materials in a variety of formats, including banners, posters, pamphlets, tracts, and clips.
  • Getting as much involvement and support as possible from key constituencies, such as partners, decision-makers, and sponsors, will enable the community to take charge of its health in the fight against the illness.
  • convening university error and risk committees for COVID-19 disease, root investigation of reported errors, and registration of errors in adverse treatment events.

COVID-19 Prevention

Since the corona pandemic began in January 2020, BMSU has conducted preventive measures in this area in the Tehran district in accordance with the guidelines of the Ministry of Health and Medical Education. Some of these initiatives include the following:

  • setting up and equipping the COVID Molecular Detection Laboratory, which completed around a million and five hundred thousand tests by February 2022. However, increasing the capability of private laboratories for COVID tests and accompanying quantitative and qualitative evaluations required the appropriate coordination and follow-up.
  • Keeping an eye on the health and immunization records of high-risk persons, including the elderly and certain patients.
  • Establishing 15 expansive immunization facilities around the district and administering approximately 5 million doses of the COVID vaccine to qualified individuals who are five years of age and older.
  • collecting data and creating statistics for certain groups, such as unique patients, specialized doctors, and nurses working in special wards, in order to prepare and administer vaccinations.
  • Establish and keep updated on procedures that reduce the danger of COVID in clinics, hospitals, and health facilities. Examples of these procedures include implementing social distances in medical centers and isolating the routes taken by dialysis patients.
  • Patients in COVID-critical situation receive extra care services, such as mental health professionals being present in hospitals to offer emotional and psychological support as well as staff counseling.
