Clinical training

Shayal Devi
Thursday, August 21, 2014

THIRTY nurses are taking advantage of a periodic training attachment in specialised and sub-speciality areas.

Fiji Nursing Services director Selina Waqa-Ledua said the Health Ministry was able to secure a working relationship with off-shore counterpart Sahaydri Hospital of India since 2011.

"This was to accommodate approximately 30 nurses per year since 2011 for neurology, orthopaedic, cardiology and intensive care attachments," she said.

"Ongoing and periodic clinical attachments of midwives and paediatric nurses to New Zealand and Australia respectively have been undertaken as well as a primary measure to expose our nurses to specialised nursing."

She said there was still a need for developing nursing education in Fiji.
