Education of Healthcare Professionals
A major objective of the Eugène Gasana Jr. Foundation is to educate medical personnel about safe healthcare practices regarding pediatric cancer care.The Foundation is dedicated to providing comprehensive education regarding all aspects of cancer care, from diagnosis to treatment.
Our initial efforts were focused on safe delivery of life saving medications and prevention of infection in children with cancer with the belief that a simple two-step process will help to save lives:
Training healthcare professionals on chemotherapy preparation, handling, administration, and destruction
Education on the use of alcohol-based hand cleansers can be readily provided and is a simple, fast and safe solution to prevent the spread of germs by healthcare workers who have direct contact with patients. Alcohol-based solutions will remove and/or suppress microbial growth.
