Summer 2017 CCNEPal will once again teach in Nepal.
Today we announced a new, scaled-down fundraising campaign to support CCNEPal’s summer 2017 activities. We are trying to raise $4,000 for a three-month trip to teach ACLS in Nepal, especially the areas outside the Kathmandu Valley. go to: https://www.gofundme.com/nepal-mission-for-critical-care to learn more.
This is not our first trip to the rodeo
CCNEPal has a long track record of successful training. We have taught ninety sessions of the 2-day or 3-day course in critical care skills. Since 2011 when we decided to focus only on critical care, we have given 2,885 certificates. We have trained nurses and doctors in Biratnagar, Janakpur, Chitwan, Palpa, Bhairawaha, Pokhara, Dulikhel, Manthali, and of course, in all parts of Kathmandu.
Sustainability is the goal
Our long-term commitment to Nepal has meant that we are developing a core group of people who will become teachers of this set of skills and establish a homegrown ability to pass these skills, and the attitude of critical care, to the next batch of juniors. We use a particular teaching style to empower the participants based on extensive knowledge of South Asian pedagogical style.
The funds raised by this campaign will be used efficiently. We expect to teach 24 sessions and reach about 700 nurses and doctors. That’s roughly six US Dollars per student reached. We have very little overhead. The return on investment per student is tremendous. We are not personally saving any lives – we are teaching the Nepali doctors and nurses to save the lives. We give them the tools. This is a “force multiplier” for CCNEPal’s goals.
