JASLOK HOSPITAL & RESEARCH CENTRE TAKES ANOTHER STEP AHEAD IN GIVING LIFE TIME OF CARE.

Mumbai, 30th OCTOBER 2017: Jaslok Hospital And Research Centre announces its initiative of spreading awareness towards early detection of breast cancer amongst women. On the occasion of national breast cancer awareness month, Jaslok Hospital provided self examination training to the women employees of the BMC (D-ward) in Mumbai. The training session was conducted at D ward BMC office, Nana Chowk, Mumbai to the entire women workforce of BMC on 30th October 2017.

Breast cancer projection for India during time periods 2020 suggests the number to go as high as 17, 97,900 says a report by NCBI (National Center for Biotechnology Information). Also the recent statistics show that women suffering from breast cancer are mainly below the age of 50 years, hence Jaslok Hospital took this as an immediate action to educate clusters of women and have started with BMC. The training session helped the women employees to self examine and identify abnormality. Breast self-examination (BSE) is a technique that was taught to all women in order to examine his/her breast tissue for any physical or visual changes. The methodology used was ‘LOOK, LURVE & LEARN’. It was showcased during the activation by the doctors of Jaslok that that the genuine rise in the incidence of breast cancer over younger generation is because of the non predominant behavior of the young population in India.

Dr Reetu Jain, Medical Oncologist, Jaslok Hospital and Research Centre, who along with the team of nurses trained the BMC women said ,” Conducting this breast cancer awareness training session with the women employees of BMC was good, they were very open minded and receptive  to the training session. There was a lot of eagerness to learn and my message to all the women is that cancer is just a word one shouldn’t get scared of it, since there is a lot of treatment and precaution available for it. Jaslok Hospital has taken an initiative for this National breast Cancer month to solve the wider issues men’s as well as women’s are facing. Being the provider of knowledge, I feel obliged to be a part of such awareness program”

Ms Jyotsna Devesh Mehta, Chairperson, Ward committee ‘C’ and ‘D’ wards BMC said, ” I would like to thank Jaslok Hospital and Research Centre for the training  session conducted for our women employees and request them to continue organising such training programmes in the future for the betterment of the masses. ”

Dr Tarang Gianchandani, CEO, of Jaslok Hospital and Research Centre said,” Jaslok Hospital and Research Centre aims to spread awareness on such dreaded diseases. With the big step taken in favor of the women employees of BMC D ward the huge anxiety amongst women about breast screening will vanish by educating the masses and performing self examinations. A breast self examination helps in regular assessment of the breasts which is an important way to find breast cancer at the early stage. As thought leader in the space of Healthcare, Jaslok Hospital urges everyone to be a part of this changing scenario it is striving for.
