Medtronic Foundation USA made a $15,000 grant towards the WSPCCA’s second objective of training and development. Part of this grant was used to sponsor 10 of its paediatric cardio-thoracic nurses to go to this year’s annual SA Cardiac Congress. Another nurse received sponsorship from the Paediatric Cardiac Society of SA.
As Part of the WSPCCA’s ongoing efforts to promote the continual training and development of its nursing staff, this is seen as a critical item in their agendas—to get up to speed with all the latest and most innovative methods of medical care in the world. Huge thanks go to Mike Howe-Ely, country manager for Medtronic in SA for making this happen!
