Kenya 2005 November

Leadership programme

The visit was the final element of the three year programme for Kenya. Debbie Lee and Kate Woodhead gathered 16 potential leaders of perioperative practice in Nairobi, in facilities provided kindly by the Aga Khan Hospital, delivered the Leadership Course. Unfortunately we had to deliver the course in a shorter time than usually available, as the referendum in Kenya occurred on the planned first day, and was a declared public holiday. However, the participants all worked very hard, and were much motivated by the learning experience.

Some practical assistance had been requested by Nakuru District Hospital the previous year, and so Lesley Fudge and Molnlycke Award Winner, Sue Byrne went to Nakuru to provide hands on support and assistance to the Theatre and Hospital Teams. This largely took the form of creating a recovery room, providing advice on process management and standards and by assisting the hospital management to prioritise refurbishment plans.

A report has since been sent to the hospital to make recommendations to assist the hospital with priorities for change. It is also hoped that the gifts of instruments and eye protection donated to the operating theatres, will have helped them to provide a less stressed service. Continuing support is being provided to the Theatre Manager.
