Teaching of Biomedical Waste in India: A Mapping Exercise

Chauhan AS, Chauhan SR, Pati S, Pati S.

"Introduction: At a time of heightened expansion of health care facilities, proper disposal of health care waste is of paramount importance. Bio medical waste management in India has undergone a paradigm shift with strict implementation of Biomedical Waste Management (BMWM) Rules and its amendments. Untrained health care auxiliaries is however a concern. Present study aims to identify the available resource for training of health care auxiliaries.
Methodology: To gain the best possible insight into how BMWM is taught a systematic search strategy was adopted for collecting information. First, a thorough search of the Internet was carried out, using search engines such as Google Scholar, and PubMed.
Results: It identified eight such institutes which cater to their need. But this is insufficient considering the large workforce. In the present study, it was reported that teaching of biomedical waste management in nursing, dental, laboratory and other allied health professions is not given much priority. Besides only theoretical knowledge is imparted rather than applied aspects and hands on skill.
Conclusion: This points to development of a more precise and structured course on bio medical waste management in India.

Key words: Biomedical Waste, Management, Health care auxiliaries
