CCNEPal is back from holiday in India. It was nice but it’s even nicer to see all my friends and to start talking about advancing critical care in Nepal again.
The main thing that CCNEPal does is to teach the 3-day class in critical care skills. We have conducted fifty sessions of this course since 2011. In 2014, 708 people took the training. (If you don’t believe me, go to the FB page for CCNEPal. there is an album of pics with every single person, in one group shot after another.)
There always needs to be willingness to consider other approaches, and while I was away I had this idea, of creating a series of short YouTube videos to cover some of the concepts, in Nepali language. There will be those who say “My English is just fine, I don’t need to hear it in Nepali” but these videos would be directed to every member of the team. You can be a fine nurse even if your English is not the best. You should not be prevented from learning the concepts just because of language problem. An ecg is the same whether the person looking at it speaks English, Nepali or Chinese!
What I envision is, a series of videos, each one five minutes in length, posted on my YouTube channel.
What CCNEPal needs is a person who is familiar with the concepts, who is comfortable on camera, and who doesn’t mind being seen on camera.
CCNEPal will provide the teaching materials to use during each. Please note: this is a volunteer project. CCNEPal is not able to pay the person who does it.
