The Nsutaman Polyclinic provides services to the very large Ashanti Region including Nsuta and 31 surrounding villages.The Polyclinic needs nursing volunteers to help at their very many and different services of medical care.
Nursing volunteer duties would be similar to those of their native country. However, their range of experience may be vastly increased and their medical knowledge greatly expanded. Nurse volunteers would be able to experience many aspects of how a rural clinic operates. Specific tasks would depend on the medical qualifications of the volunteer and their previous experience.
Other duties may include administrative work, awareness projects, and other self-led initiatives. In the past, volunteers have had successful work in breast feeding awareness campaigns, prenatal care and malaria prevention efforts.
Nursing volunteers may have the opportunity to travel with the clinic staff on outreach services to the surrounding rural villages.The clinic also does outreach services to local schools and community groups. Nurses that volunteer at the Nsutaman Clinic may be asked to create and give presentations.
This is a great opportunity to share ideas with the local staff (nurses and doctors). What a great way to expand your knowledge not only in the medical field but in so many other aspects in life and at the same time help in a worthwhile endeavour.
Nursing volunteers for this placement must have completed their educational requirements and be registered nurses.
