Schedule of #ACLS training in #Nepal announced
CCNEPal has always made our training available outside Kathmandu Valley. The next “Road trip” starts in just a few days.
Here is the plan:
April 8th – travel day, from KTM to Biratnagar. by plane.
April 9th and 10th – 2-day session of our critical care course in Biratnagar. I confess I am not certain of the venue, but the contact person is Dipty Subba, of Purbanchal University. She was the contact person for our trip there last year. We expect to have a large batch for this course; for that reason, we would like to invite the nurses who were the “assistants” to help us. Also, this session will be open to both doctors and nurses. If there are docs in Biratnagar who wish to see what the course is about, be advised, I will do what I can to share my materials with you!
April 11th – travel day from Biratnagar to Bharatpur. by bus.
April 12th 7 13th; 14th & 15th; 16th & 17th; 19th & 20th. Four two-day sessions of the course to train 140 MBBS students and firstyear interns at Chitwan Medical College in Bharatpur. Many of the readers may not know that CMC has begun the initial steps to perform cardiac surgery. I will lead these sessions, but CMC has designated specific persons to be my “assistants” for the courses, and the idea is for me to mentor them in doing their own teaching. I have enjoyed my previous trips to CMC and they have some wonderful people!
April 21st – travel day from Bharatpur to Bhairawaha. by bus. I will pass the scene of my bus accident. I wonder if the carcass of the bus will be laying there?
April 22nd, 23rd and 24th – three-day session of the Critical Care Course, for nurses at Universal College of Medical Sciences (UCMS) in Bhairawaha. I was there in 2011 and they were wonderful to me.
April 26th & 27th; 28th & 29th; April 30th/May 1st – At UCMS. three two-day sessions of the course, with a focus on medical officers, MBBS students, and interns. The interns will be finishing their time at UCMS, and this course will help them be ready for possible assignment to smaller health posts.
May 3rd, 4th & 5th – three-day session for UCMS nursing students.
May 6th & 7th – travel from Bhairawaha to Jumla. By shuttle vehicle. Jumla is in Western Nepal.
May 8th, 9th & 10th; then again 11th, 12th and 13th – two threeday sessions in Jumla at Karnali Academy of Health Sciences, for hospital nurses, doctors, medical students – everyone. I will be working with the anesthesia department to help them learn how to teach this course.
May 14th & 15th -travel from Jumla to Butwal. Overland. Then a day off May 16th in Butwal, enjoying one of Nepal’s underappreciated wonders!
May 17th, 18th & 19th – Mayadevi Technical College in Butwal.
May 20th – travel.
May 21st to May 29th – tentative. I have been invited to College of Medical Sciences (CMS) in Bharatpur but we have not worked out the details.
May 30th – Tribhuwan International Airport. When I get on the plane, I will look back on a wonderful year in Nepal and India.
