Member educational activities


Six member overseas team coordinated by NDA member and ex vice chairman Dr Anil Tuladhar, Consultant Paediatrician along with Dr Janakiraman, Consultant Neonatologist, Dr Subhan Christudas, Senior Paediatric Trainee, Ms Barbara Harrison, Retired Ward Matron Neonatal Unit from Northern Deanery joined by Dr Bernd Reichert, Assistant Professor In Neonatology and Ms Joanne Jenkinson, Senior Neonatal Nurse, Sidra Institute, Doha , Qatar conducted hands on two day NLS course in Dhulikhel.

The response was overwhelming and the course was oversubscribed, hence had to be restricted to 25 candidates each day to provide maximum out of the course. Feedback was excellent for the format and conduct of the course. Most of the participants stated that they had never had such a hands on simulation based neonatal life support course.

The course was sponsored by Health Exchange Nepal (UK) and provided necessary equipments including manikins. The course was run in collaboration with North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Foundation Trust (UK) and ably supported by Dhulikhel Hospital team. Our aim is to run this annually and and slowly reach out to other areas in Nepal.

Ms Harrison also conducted three days hands on training to the nurses with regards to neonatal advanced care prior to the NLS course.
