Should community care be incorporated into Nigeria health care practice?

Posted by Flourish Itulua-Abumere on June 18, 2013 at 6:50 AM

Community care is care delivered to you anywhere you are instead of been cared for in the traditional hospital setting. So you can treated at home or in the nursing home. Can this work in Nigeria? Should it be encouraged in our health care sytem? Will this be cost effective? what will be the weakness and strengths?

It's pointless. Nothing works in Nigeria. No matter, it's incorporation.

It should be incorporated but I don't think its cost effective for a place like Nigeria. The government will need money to employ more qualified staffs, provide training, provide comfortable transportation, and give the worker security. All this will cost money. Besides let them take care of General Hospitals around the nation first.

Community care is good. Lets use the opportunity to care for those sick people begging in the streets of Lagos. It will keep Nigeria cities clean from disease and impurity.

Yes. Its far cost effective and old people can actually stop dodging there medications as the nurses will be right there looking at them.

Yes it should for the sake of convenience and comfort.

Normally, since I wish Nigeria progress, I will say yes. But since Nigerians can't do anything without corruption, I will say no. Let them save the money for other things like eradicating poverty that is if they can

Community care worked perfectly in the United Kingdom under the Margaret Thatcher administration and till date its still working. people even give birth at home conveniently in the UK and that is part of the advantages. it will also reduce hospital overcrowding if encouraged in Nigeria.

Nooooooo they should not do any community care. Some people will not get the care needed especially the poor in non-accessible areas.

Community care should be encouraged in Nigeria but I don't see it happening soon. Too much disorganization. Secondly those who will be kept to monitor the carers or nurses will then be exposed to corruption. Am scared of it happening in Nigeria. But lets use the next 10 years to prepare for it.
