She also noted in her speech that the continuation of medical education was important and that conferences like these would not only “produce competent and up-to-date doctors and nurses, but what is more important is that the knowledge gained from these activities should be translated, applied and implemented into evidence-based practise at the point of clinical care to patients”. After the opening speech, Dr Hjh Norlila Dato Paduka Hj Abdul Jalil also officiated the launch of the “National Interhospital Transport Guidelines of critically ill patients” booklet.
