I am now in Nepal, and I am humbled by the welcome from so many people. I will be here until November 16th, then I go to USA to see my family, returning for January to May, 2015.

What dates are open in June?
for those who absolutely must host a session, I could add another one in KTM Valley June 29 and 30 and July 1st. I need to pace myself. When I go to Terai on “road trip” I like to offer sessions back-to-back, but usually it will be one full session each week.
Yes, yes, yes I hope to get to Pokhara. I wanna go to BTWL too ! these are in planning stages.
Sessions open to all nurses not just those working at a host site?
I hope to conduct the “first-come first-served” sessions at LNC as in the past. These were my favorite and LNC has been wonderful to me. I have not met with them, we haven’t even begun to negotiate this, other than to pledge our mutual respect and admiration.
When we announce these sessions, we always get a flood of nurses to sign up. We will post specific instructions as to how to register, when the dates are set. Please do not contact LNC yet. They have asked that we use some system to prevent a crowd from overwhelming their staff at time of registration.
Content of the sessions
this is a 3-day-in-a-row class. it covers material on how to assess and intervene with a person dying of heart problems, with an emphasis on teamwork. Click here to see the course outline. It’s based on an American Advanced Cardiac Life Support course, adapted to meet the needs of Nepal. For example, in USA they require teaching about AEDs, something not in use in this country. click here for a description of the course in Nepali. or here.
MBBS students and docs
New this year, we are offering some sessions for MBBS students. In USA, this course is always conducted in a mixed group of nurses, doctors, paramedics and respiratory therapists. This course is about teamwork. If there are MBBS students ( or interns or residents) that wish to have this course, ask your senior in-charge to contact me.

there will be updates whenever a new set of dates is added.
