We need ‘azadi’ from doctor-patient disputes on this Independence Day: Dr KK Aggarwal on TEDx Talks

Dr KK Aggarwal, Recipient of Padma Shri

The doctor-patient relationship is facing turbulent times these days. Trust forms the foundation of the doctor-patient relationship and determines the outcome. However, this trust has corroded over the last few years and must be restored urgently, as it is crucial to the survival of this very important relationship.

This is how I began my talk that I gave at TEDxMansarovarPark in Rohtak.

Heart Care Foundation of India invites nominations for the HCFI Excellence Awards 2018
Awards are not negative and motivate us to strive further for excellence
 
New Delhi, 13 August 2018: As part of the 25th MTNL Perfect Health Mela 2018, the Heart Care Foundation of India (HCFI) has invited nominations for the HCFI Excellence Awards to be held during the Mela. Awards are designed to honor the best contributions from individuals and organizations in healthcare. The idea is also to inspire other likeminded entities to participate in a grander scale and make the "Healthcare for all" movement a success.

Awards often have negative connotations. However, they are aimed at recognizing excellence, and are a public acknowledgement of the years of hard work and dedication put in by individuals and organizations. Awards can be bestowed by the government, professional associations, organizations, etc. but for doctors, the awards given by the patient community are the most valuable.
