Basic Life Support Training
Training on basic life support conducted to teaching staff
KMTC Nairobi Campus has conducted four-day training on basic life support (BLS) to its teaching staff in nursing and clinical medicine.
Basic life support is skills given to health workers to assist in case of emergencies as they wait for more assistance.
It is a requirement that every health worker should be able to give BLS and must have certification on the same.
KMTC, in its efforts to meet this requirement, organized the training between 12th and 16th March, 2018 which saw 22 lecturers from the two departments trained, according to the BLS Coordinator Dr. Wagaki Gicheru.
The Campus also conducted training of trainers to enable the lecturers to transfer skills on BLS to other lecturers.
Making KMTC a training centre on BLS and integrating training of BLS in the curricular to ensure that all graduates are equipped with these skills are two of some of the plans the Campus has on BLS, adds Dr. Gicheru.
The training was facilitated by Captain Elisha Asha from Quality Dialysis Care Kenya, who also donated training equipment.
Deputy Principal (Finance and Administration) Mr. Amos Kipsumbai closed the workshop.
