MAIN GOALS

The relevance of the meeting is underlined even by the fact that, according to the Ministry of Health, our country ranks first in Europe in the prevalence of dental diseases: 92% of Ukrainian teenagers have caries (in Western Europe, 40%), and 100% are older 40 years - periodontitis.
The general tasks currently facing the Ukrainian healthcare system were outlined in his speech by the Deputy Chairman of the Academic Council of the Ministry of Health of Ukraine, the head of the sector of science and innovation of the Office for Coordination of Reform Centers, a corresponding member of the National Academy of Medical Sciences of Ukraine, Professor Alexander Volosovets.

“The first part of the symposium is dedicated to the provision of dental care to the population. In the strategic plan, we are on the verge of determining what such assistance should be, what is the role of the state in it. Therefore, we are looking for ways and frameworks of partnership between the public and private sectors. The issues of training specialists, their internship, postgraduate education were also considered. - explained the director of the Institute of Dentistry NMAPE Alexei Pavlenko. - The second part presents the German Association of Oral Implantologists (DGOI). Our colleagues acquainted with their adopted system of training, licensing, accreditation. Since German dentistry is traditionally considered fundamental, we intend to implement some of their achievements into our practice, if possible. ”

Irina Mazur, professor of dentistry at NMAPE, explained that our own model of education has already been created in Ukraine, which allows graduating good specialists. “They can compete with any foreign colleagues. But time makes its own adjustments. Technology is advancing at a very fast pace. Every two years, the entire array of medical information is updated. It is impossible to catch up with modern universities at such a pace. Especially in Ukraine, in the current situation. This symposium showed that our education model is beautiful. But there is not enough material and technical base. There are not enough simulation rooms where the student, before approaching the patient, practices all the skills. And the level of material and technical base that our colleague from Frankfurt demonstrated in his report is a demonstration of what we need to strive for, ”says Irina Mazur.

Professor Pavlenko noted that in order to translate any intentions into life, initiators are always needed - those people who will work on their implementation, enthrall others. Today, those who seek to introduce new methods into our medicine have already established the Ukrainian Association of Oral Implantologists.

We strive to increase the overall level of Ukrainian dentistry. To do this, we implement training programs for doctors, arrange meetings like the one you are attending today. ”
Vadim Klimentyev, head doctor of the European Clinic.

OPINION OF LISTENERS

During the symposium, the journalist was able to communicate with its participants - those who filled a spacious audience in NMAPE.

We see that state institutions and the private sector must work together for the health of our people, ”says Vasily Rybak.

Bogomolets, Corresponding Member of the National Academy of Medical Sciences of Ukraine, Professor Vladislav Malanchuk noted that the symposium helped all those present to better understand how the healthcare system is organized and functions in developed countries and how specialists are trained. “This fits perfectly into the nationwide process of European integration. I want to draw your attention to the fact that today Ukraine is just starting its way to its own dentistry quality system. So the symposium is extremely useful for the future of our health care. I am grateful to the organizers for the opportunity. I want to wish that the symposium was only the beginning, ”Professor Malanchuk commented on what was happening.

According to the head of the Department of Surgical Dentistry, Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and Dentistry of the Kharkov Medical Academy of Postgraduate Education, Professor Irina Lesova, Ukrainian public health services are currently facing great tasks in organizing high-quality medical care: “The symposium brings clarity to the organization of dentistry and prepares steps to reorganize the industry.
