Treatment for cancer can potentially result in life threatening circumstances; thus, it is essential that all healthcare workers receive education about lifesaving techniques. The Foundation conducted a training course at University Teaching Hospital of Kigali (CHUK) regarding basic and advanced cardiac life support for healthcare workers. The course was conducted by Dr. Tanya Trippett and Paulette Kelly, PNP (Certified Instructor) from Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.
The Eugène Gasana Jr. Foundation, in collaboration with the Sean Hanna Foundation, donated 4 infant and 4 child resuscitation mannequins, 16 provider manuals, educational CDs on pediatric resuscitation, resuscitation bags, knitted caps, and other medical supplies to the Pediatric Department at the University Teaching Hospital of Kigali (CHUK) for these efforts. The mannequins were donated in order to allow ongoing training in both basic and advanced cardiac life support.
