Stakeholder Story - Dr Jawahar gets great articles for a talk he has to deliver

By Vasumathi Sriganesh | Founder & CEO

At QMed we marvel at so many things that are unique about us. One aspect is that very often the people who experience the benefits of our work, give us a donation to support our work. 

One such person is Dr Jawahar  – an Orthopedic Surgeon. Some years ago he had attended our workshop. But there is that much a practising surgeon can retain from a workshop and actually apply. The best learning they get is – they know what they can and cannot expect and they know how to communicate their needs, to information specialists like us.

 Recently Dr Jawahar called and requested:

"I have to talk on diagnosing infections in hip Arthroplasty. The target audience is Maharashtra Orthopaedic Association surgeons. Do you think you could help me with some references specially targeting newer infection markers (blood) and protocols for diagnosis?"

 If you read this carefully – he told us all that we needed. The topic. The purpose for his search. The target audience. The topic’s nuances. He further mentioned that there were others talking on other aspects, and he specifically needed only the above.

 Very often people who have not gone through our programs, do not give us such specifics, let alone the reason for their wanting a search done. Every bit matters when one does a literature search. We can learn lots of techniques (QMed indeed teaches plenty of them) – but one needs to know how to apply them for different purposes and contexts.

 It took me very little time to work on this and we sent him around 50 results. In two days he responded – “The references are great” and sent us a donation for the same!

We really appreciate Dr Jawahar – not just for his donation (though we are indeed grateful for it). We think it is great that that he made the effort to ask for professional help, and that he read up a number of very relevant articles in order to cover the best of the latest, in his talk. And of course – we are really happy to have contributed to this. 

Such doctors also give a crucial message to medical students - that it is important to find the best literature to do any professional work in medicine and it is good to get help from information specialists. 

Do listen to this short video clip by the doctor - We have his approval for sharing this video.
