Hong Kong International Medical & Health Care Fair 2008

The Hospital took part in the third Hong Kong International Medical & Health Care Fair, which was launched from 14 to 18 August 2008 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre.

The Hong Kong Private Hospitals Association (HKPHA) put up a Virtual Operating Theatre to introduce to visitors pre-operative preparation work, intra-operative procedures in various specialties as well as post-operative care. The series of short videos on pre-operative and post-operative work demonstrated how surgeons and nursing professionals assist patients in the choice of treatment by the provision of psychological support. Member hospitals also displayed various kinds of advanced equipment and instruments in different specialities, such as cardiology, orthopaedics, gastroenterology and ENT.

At the HKPHA booth, the twelve private hospitals made a concerted effort to organize a "Health Care Forum", in which over 40 health talks were delivered on a variety of topics by specialists. The Forum attracted thousands of audience and was a key highlight of the Fair.
