SSSL NURSE FORUM
On Saturday, December 5., CNIS held a nursing forum in Vancouver . Earlier this year, nursing workshops based on the Safe Surgery Saves Lives (SSSL) Checklist were held in Ethiopia. The intent of the workshops is to share the “pilot project” experience, and build upon it. An important and strategic component in the building process is learning from the experiences of those already involved in international work, so that human resources (i.e. nurses) can be mobilized appropriately, an effective outcome achieved and patient care in these under-developed areas significantly improved. Forum participants were introduced to the perioperative workshop’s content and process. Thank you to all who participated.
