SACBC ART Nurses workshop
The past week the SACBC AIDS Office conducted a small workshop for some of the SACBC ART project’s nurses (2 from each site).
The workshop focussed on the core standards for health establishments prescribed by the DOH. As a result of the training the nurses produced Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) in line with the DOH guidelines and legal framework of South Africa. The nurses all successfully completed a Basic Life Support for Health professionals course form the American Heart Association – in line with safety protocols for Health professionals.
The nurses worked very hard to produce the SOPs and to study and complete the BLS course, but they were very thankful for the opportunities afforded them.
The BLS trainers were Mrs Karen Venter and Mrs Thea Britz
