On Wednesday, August 15, 2018, we spent the day in Rongai going from hospital to hospital talking to doctors telling them about Ubrica Global Journal System . The System is created to host many publications for peer reviewed works by professionals.
The Clinical Proceedings from Hospitals of Kenya publishes the clinical works emerging from hospitals in Kenya. This journal accepts submissions from proceedings of grand rounds and similar clinical-pathology meetings, taking place in teaching hospitals in Kenya, case reports, anecdotes, original research works, monographs, theses on clinical subjects.
We met in Tumaini at 8:00am and had visited seven hospitals namely; Beacon of Hope, The Karen Hospital, Agha Khan Hospital, Hope Care Medical Centre, Mariakani Hospital, Garlands Medical Centre and Nairobi Women’s Hospital.
Most of the doctors had not heard of the Ubrica Global Journal or Ubrica so we started each meeting with a brief explanation of what our company was all about. We also told them of the importance of posting these journals which would help improve healthcare by providing a platform for various doctors to talk about their different experiences and how they deal with various issues.
The response from the doctors was very positive, they liked the idea and were willing to participate. Doctor Musa Atuti from Nairobi Women’s Hospital invited us to join them for their weekly meeting and get to talk to the other doctors in the hospital about the Ubrica Global Journal. We got the doctors contact information to follow up and some agreed to pass by our office to talk more about it and meet Dr Macharia Waruingi.
One of the doctors was concerned with the lack of internet access for some doctors and we told him we would help publish the journals and reports on behalf of the doctors. Another challenge we faced was the lack of detailed written material containing information about our site.
In overall the fieldwork was successful and we learned a lot on how to make the eventful fieldwork better.
