A follow-up online training for RaDSS was held on June 4, 2021, via Zoom.
The training was headed by Mr Richard Edades (JAPOHR/DA-BAI IT staff) with the help of Dr Patricia Lacanilao (JAPOHR Bulacan field veterinarian) and supervised by Dr Nobuo Saito (JAPOHR JCIA expert). The participants for the training were all from the Animal Health Sectors of Bulacan and were attended by representatives from the Provincial Veterinary Office and the Municipal Agriculture Office of Pulilan and Guiguinto.
We performed actual hands-on training following the instructions by Richard. On the spot recommendations and suggestions were shared for proper modification. After completing the training, the participants got used to understand the actual process flow of the system and got pieces of knowledge of case responses. They got used to analyze and plan for more advanced methods to handle case management.
A sample case simulation was performed (pictures below)
RaDSS (Rabies data share system) is an internet-based data sharing system developed by DA-BAI, Oita University and JAPOHR project members. The aim of RaDSS is to immediately share the information of laboratory-confirmed rabies animal to rabies workers around the case. RaDSS can lead to timely actions.
JAPOHR project aims to implement Rabies data share system in September 2021 in Bulacan. For that purpose, we conducted RaDSS user trainings to 3 offices (PVO Bulacan, MAO Pulilan and MAO Guigiunto) in Bulacan.
The training was successfully done and we will do one more online training next week. All participants were excited to use RaDSS.
Although we were close only at the time of the photo, we did strict implementations to prevent COVID 19 infections during the meeting (face mask, face shield, social distance, air ventilation etc) following our meeting and training guidelines.
