A friend of mine in Nepal is doing a BN nursing project on burn care in that country. For me, burn care is an indelible memory of bedside nursing on my trips there. I wrote about it in my first book and it will be part of my second book. For my money, it is the most difficult specialty there is.
I was searching for something else entirely when I came upon an interesting link. It was an article in Jenonline (emergency nursing journal) about a nursing project from the University of Alberta.
here is the link in all it’s glory. The authors describe their teaching approach in improving burn care at Kathmandu Model Hospital (or at least, I think that’s where the host site was…)
I was not previously aware of ReSurge International, which provides reconstructive surgery after burn injury. They are based in California. They have a schedule of teaching in Nepal.
here is a YouTube Video that describes what they do.
