Two links to cross-posted blogs on the subject of midwifery in Nepal

Many of you know that I also write occasionally for a USA blog named “DailyKOS” – it’s a blog with a million subscribers. It’s focused on electing political candidates from the Democratic Party. But since it’s so big I can reach a larger audience when I post there.

I posted two blogs. The First one was about Chauppadi. It also covered various aspects of women’s health.

The second one was about strategies to help Nepali women by training midwives.

I leave for Terai early tomorrow. I will take the Tourist Bus from Surkhotte just north of Thamel. The route is The Prithvi Highway.

Wish me luck!

About Joe Niemczura, RN, MS

These blogs, and my books, and videos are written on the principle that any person embarking on something similar to what I do will gain more preparation than I first had, by reading them. I have fifteen years of USA nursing faculty background. Add to it fifteen more devoted to adult critical care. In Nepal, I started teaching critical care skills in 2011. I figure out what they need to know in a Nepali practice setting. Then I teach it in a culturally appropriate way so that the boots-on-the-ground people will use it. One theme of my work has been collective culture and how it manifests itself in anger. Because this was a problem I incorporated elements of "situational awareness" training from the beginning, in 2011.
