BGS Gleneagles Global Hospital’s Revamped Cancer Centre to Promote Holistic Healing for Cancer Patients and Their Families

The hospital redesigned its oncology department to make the area more therapeutic and uplifting in response to comments from cancer patients and their families.

To make the experience of cancer patients more comfortable while waiting for their consultations, an unwait area with a library shelf with inspirational literature, herbal teas, light music, and modern seats instead of conventional chairs was added.

A short cancer film was screened that highlighted the bravery of cancer patients as well as the familys collective fight against the illness.

BGS Gleneagles Global Hospital observed World Cancer Day with a number of new activities in honour of their cancer patients and as a step toward delivering a comprehensive approach to cancer treatment and rehabilitation.

Inauguration of oncology department by Sri Sri Dr. Prakashnath Swamiji, MD, BGS and SJB Group of Institution and Hospitals

The hospital officially opened its newly renovated oncology department, which was designed with the requirements of cancer patients and their families in mind to provide them with a soothing and more revitalising environment while receiving cancer treatment.A waiting area with motivational literature for patients to read and take home, herbal tea, soulful music, and enhanced seating chairs are all present in the lovely place, which is packed with inspiring tales of cancer fighters. These elements help to lower stress and improve care.

Sri Sri Dr. Prakashnath Swamiji, Managing Director of the BGS & SJB Group of Institutions & Hospitals in Bengaluru, as well as doctors including Dr. Monika Pansari, Dr. Karthik K Prasad, Dr. Rajeev Vijayakumar, Dr. Govind Eriat, Dr. Prerana S Nesargi, Dr. Mathangi J, cancer survivors, members of the privileged community, corporate executives, and hospital personnel attended the departments inauguration.

Speaking during the screening and films premier, Biju Nair, Cluster COO at Bengalurus Gleneagles Global Hospitals, remarked, “The bravery of our cancer patients and their families inspires us every day. Launching this short film is our attempt to recognise their fortitude and to convey the idea that we are all in this together during one of their most difficult phases. The battle against cancer is not only about one person; it affects the whole family. We are making every attempt to make their journey as comfortable as possible.

Commenting on the significant advancements in cancer treatment and research as well as the advantages it offers patients, Dr. Govind Eriat, Consultant Hematology, Hemato-Oncology & Stem Cell Transplantation, added, “Of all cancer subspecialties, the amalgamation of cutting edge molecular advancements and affordable Indian generics, has been most impactful in the realm of haematology, hematological cancers and immunology, as they have translated into bedside care, at an affordable cost.

Stem cell transplantation is now more accessible to deserving patients, like leukemia and myelomas and refractory lymphomas, in addition to Thalassemia and sickel cell disease.

Newer immunotherapy platforms like using genetically modified T cells called CAR-T cells are now a reality, which will help patients whose blood cancer has not responded to standard of care, in the high risk and refractory segment.

The unfavourable side effects that an allogeneic transplant delivers have been minimised by T-cell-based graft management procedures, which are now commonplace. Although the price is prohibitive right now, in a few years it will be affordable for a lot more individuals.

The enterprise of national and international bone marrow registries to help patients without a family donor, had already saved well over 10000 lives, giving their families a second chance.

Mesenchymal stromal cells are being used experimentally to help neuroregeneration, to help patients with spinal cord injuries.”

A vigorous cancer detection and awareness effort is required due to the worrisome rise in cancer incidence. Although there has been progress in raising knowledge of the possibility of getting cancer, there is still a real gulf between what the average person knows about the illness and what can actually be done to screen or diagnose it in himself or his loved ones.

Dr. Karthik K Prasad, Consultant Surgical Oncologist, commented on the initiatives the hospital is taking to raise awareness and the role of each individual to support cancer patients, saying, “BGS Gleneagles global hospital takes this opportunity to make use of social media for closing the care gap in cancer treatment by emphasising on the collective social responsibility of the public towards this. Every individual in the society is encouraged to develop empathy towards cancer patients and help atleast one person close the care gap and reach out to appropriate cancer caregivers. Sharing of an individual person’s effort on the social media would motivate a thousand others to do the same. We the oncology team at BGS Gleneagles global hospital encourage sharing posts on “how I helped a cancer patient” and share it on instagram with the #we closed the care gap.

What if we tell you Cancer need not be the end of life Cancer was never meant to be scary; it is the way we look at it. To view short film, clickhere.

On World Cancer Day, BD India Launches the PortShala Microsite for Healthcare Professionals and Patients

Aligned with its commitment to patient safety, BD (Becton, Dickinson, and Company), launched a microsite https://www.bdportshala.com for healthcare professionals and patients on World Cancer Day. It is also the second anniversary of BD India’s Portshala initiative.

Chemoport

Portshala is a medical education program for healthcare professionals that was conceptualized to create awareness on Chemoports and the lifestyle benefits that they offer to patients. These include painless delivery of chemotherapy drugs through a single port without requiring need for multiple access points thereby eliminating the need to find a suitable vein at each chemo session.

Atul Grover, Managing Director-BD-India/South Asia said, “Our educational outreach program Portshala is specifically built to generate awareness around cancer and the benefits of using advanced vascular access devices during cancer treatment. On the occasion of World Cancer Day, we are pleased to announce the launch of our Portshala microsite for healthcare professionals and patients. The microsite encloses information on advanced vascular access devices like chemoports and how they can enhance the quality of life for patients.At BD, patient care and safety continue to be the bedrock of what we do, and such initiatives that enable improved treatment solutions to reiterate our commitment to Advancing the world of health.

Chemotherapy is one of the common treatment lines for cancer that is aimed at killing cancer cells, preventing it from spreading, and slowing the growth rate. For the intravenous chemo drug delivery process, the drugs need to be given through a Vascular Access Device (VAD) such as IV cannula, PICC line, or a chemoport. A chemoport is an advanced VAD that is surgically placed under the skin for easy and repeated access.

Highlighting the benefits of Chemoports, Dr. Sandeep Nayak, Senior Director- Surgical Oncology, Robotic & Laparoscopic Surgery, Fortis Cancer Institute, and MACS Clinic, Bangalore says, “Cancer patients often go through intravenous treatment to receive chemotherapy, medications, and blood transfusions. Unfortunately, this also results in multiple needle pricks for the patient as most of the time the vein is not easily detected. The process becomes very painful for the patient. The benefit of the chemoport is that it stays in place through the treatment duration. The maintenance of the port is also very simple and the patient does have to do anything about it.”

Oncologists all over the world are recognizing the advantages of using Chemoports rather than traditional cannulas. The ports can stay in place as long as the physician recommends. So, unlike cannulas, one doesn’t need to replace it frequently and thus has lesser visits to the hospital. A study indicates that 92% of the patients had an improved quality of life with chemo ports.

Patients and physicians can seek mutual benefit from chemoports as they are multi-functional and can also be used for delivering fluids and transfusions, collecting blood samples for lab testing, and injecting dye for PET and CT scans.

ART Fertility Hosts ANNO-the 1st International Fertility Conference in India

The conference focused on the increasing need for affordable and effective fertility treatments.

The event was attended by the finest researchers and clinicians from India and abroad.

ART Fertility Clinics today hosted the First World Fertility Conference ANNO 2023 at the Hyatt Regency in Delhi. The conference attracted 200+ doctors from India and over 15 international medical faculty from around the world. The conference was graced by Dr. Human Fatemi, and other eminent IVF experts, including Prof. Pasqualino Loi, Dr. Barbara Lawrenz, Prof. Sara Brucker, Dr. Laura Melado Vidales, and Prof. Luca Gianaroli. The conferences theme was Reproduction in an Individualised Medicine Era.

Leading experts in the field of fertility gather for ANNO 2023, the first international conference by ART Fertility Clinics in India

The conference focused on how ART has made significant strides in patients medical and clinical care over the past two decades. It also underscored the importance of ARTs active involvement in human reproductive research.

Indias IVF market size was estimated at $793.27 Million in 2020 and is expected to reach $3,721.99 Million by 2030 at a CAGR of 16.45%. The market growth can be attributed to the rising prevalence of infertility among couples, growing awareness of assisted reproductive treatments, and supportive government initiatives.

The conference highlighted that the practice of commercial surrogacy or hiring a surrogate mother in India is prohibited in all its forms by any surrogacy clinics, gynaecologists, embryologists, or other medical professionals. This will now facilitate more avenues for research related to more advanced fertility treatments.

Furthermore, Indias 2021 Act permits the option of altruistic surrogacy. Also, Assisted Reproductive Technology (Regulation) Act 2021, passed by the Parliament in December 2021, provides regulations for assisted reproductive technology clinics and banks, prevents misuse, and ensures the safe and ethical practice of ART services.

Speaking at the conference, Prof. Dr. Human Fatemi, Group Medical Director, of ART Fertility Clinics said, “Assisted reproduction technology (ART) has come a long way in recent years, with advancements in areas such as preimplantation genetic testing, in-vitro maturation, time-lapse imaging, artificial intelligence, and gene editing. These developments have not only improved success rates in ART but also enabled individualized medicine, where treatment is tailored to a patients specific medical and genetic needs. The integration of personalised medicine and telemedicine in ART have also ensured better diagnosis, management, and access to care for patients.”

ANNO 2023 provided IVF experts with the perfect platform to exchange scientific ideas on infertility – a global health issue affecting millions of individuals of reproductive age.

This event was unique in that it brought together specialists from around the world to discuss the latest developments in IVF treatments and share their collective knowledge and experience towards the goal of expanding access to effective infertility solutions.

Real Estate Stalwarts Applaud Urban Infra Push in Union Budget 2023

The Union Budget 2023-24 includes a swathe of favourable policies and reforms that promise a considerable boost to urban infrastructure and affordable housing. For example, the outlay of PM Awas Yojana Fund has been increased by 66% to Rs. 79,000 crore in this budget as a significant step towards creation of housing for all.

Budget 2023 an insider

The Finance Minister has also announced 33% hike in capital expenditure to Rs. 10 lakh crore for infrastructure development. Moreover, an Urban Infrastructure Development Fund (UIDF) is also planned to be set up to create urban infrastructure in Tier 2 and Tier 3 cities. The real estate industry leaders in the meanwhile have cheered the budget for its unwavering focus on stirring the demand in both residential and commercial segments.

Mr. Manoj Gaur, President CREDAI NCR and CMD Gaurs Group said, “An increased capital outlay for a third year in a row to INR 10 lakh crore amounting to 3.3% of the GDP, a hike of 66% to over 79,000 crore for PM Awas Yojana and the 9,000-crore Credit Guarantee Scheme for MSMEs will have a positive multiplier effect on economic growth and help realize the PM’s vision for ‘Housing for All.”

The Union Budget 2023 has rightly emphasised on boosting the healthy consumer demand in the realty sector apart from enhancing the ease of doing business. The honourable finance minister has also showcased her keen inclination towards urban infrastructure development in tier-II-III cities with the announcement of the fund of Rs. 10000 crore per annum for this purpose. Such an encouraging move will further drive real estate growth all across the country,” added Mr. Ashish Bhutani, CEO, Bhutani Infrastructure.

Budget 2023 will help drive growth in the Indian realty sector with its emphasis on upgrading infrastructure and boosting demand in the residential segment. The demand for luxury properties has been already growing rapidly and we expect the market to become much more favourable for the HNIs to invest on the back of the increased thrust of the government on boosting the urban infrastructure,” said Mr. Rizwan Sajan, Founder and Chairman, Danube Group.

Mr. Ajay Chaudhary, CMD, Ace Group opined, “We welcome the Union Budget 2023 for its significant announcements enabling the real estate sector to march on the growth trajectory. The announcement like increased income tax rebate limit from Rs. 5 lakh to Rs. 7 lakh in new tax regime will sustain demand creation in both affordable and luxury housing segments. Apart from giving more disposable income in the hands of the consumers, the concerted focus of this budget on encouraging reforms in urban planning will further boost India’s already thriving real estate sector.”

Mr. Sanjay Gupta, CMD, APL Apollo Tubes said, “Considered as the backbone of the country’s infrastructure growth, the steel industry is here to get a considerable boost with the inclusion of infrastructure development into the seven priorities of Budget 2023. We equally welcome the respected Finance Minister’s comprehensive focus on proposing 100 critical transport infrastructures for last and first-mile connectivity with an investment of Rs 75000 crore that promises the demand for steel to stay robust in the market. The annual allocation of Rs. 10000 crore for urban infrastructure development will also lead to demand creation for steel.”

Riding high on the encouraging policies announced in Budget 2023-24, the demand in real estate sector is expected to grow. Above all the rationalisation of income tax would definitely encourage some of the fence-sitters to enter the market and purchase their choicest properties.
