June 6-9th 2022 saw the Nazarene Health Ministries (NHM) reach out to the officers-in-charge of their 9 rural health centre facilities and bring them to home base for some long overdue investment in their professional medical knowledge.
Per the words of Dr mark Crouch:
What a privilege to take part in teaching and training for the Officers-in-Charge at NHM’s Rural Health Services clinics. Coming from Madang, Southern Highlands, Morobe, Jiwaka Provinces – as well as NCD – it was the first time NHM collected these impressive people together to create fellowship and impart some practical tools for improving the care they provide at our rural health sites.
Included in the week’s activities were updates on record keeping and reporting, refreshers on TB and HIV care, a maternity skills workshop, and training in the proper maintenance and use of solar power.
Pleased to be a part of this and many thanks to our workers and our Rural Health Services director – Gabriel Mahisu (DGN, MPH) – for making this happen!
Nazarene Health Ministries operates the Nazarene General Hospital in Kudjip in Jiwaka province as well 8 health centres scattered throughout the mainland of Papua New Guinea.
In a bid to continue to connect doctors and the entire cadre of health professionals serving in the rural areas of Papua New Guinea the society will on the first Thursday of each month host a virtual medical education seminar open to any medical professional.
As all health workers know medicine is an ever evolving art and we are students for the entirety of our professional lives.
Commencing this afternoon the PNG Society for Rural and Remote Health will be hosting monthly virtual CMEs open to its members and any interested health workers.
Apologies on the incorrect date which should be 7th July 2022. Our very own former society president, Dr David Mills will kick off the monthly seminar. Please find zoom links as follows: Meeting ID: 884 6136 8026 Passcode: 261340
