Project Report | Oct 22, 2018
Educational program report (Jul - Sep 2018)

By Oksana Gozdachenko | Fundraising department specialist

In July, we continued our cooperation with the Canadian hospital SickKids: the hospital delegation visited the National children's hospital Okhmatdyt to conduct a professional assessment of the hospital and give important strategic recommendations for the further development. Before the visit, it was very important to conduct a preliminary assessment of Ohmatdyt’s work with a description of the background in order to help the Canadian team focus on key problem areas. This assessment has taken our team. We placed great emphasis in communication with SickKids on the importance of additional training of doctors and nurses in Okhmatdyt and the participation of Canadian hospital specialists in establishing in Okhmatdyt the correct organization of medical care, including children's oncology.

In August, the department of bone marrow transplantation of Okhmatdyt was in a critical situation: almost all employees of the BMT Unit, as well as all employees of the reference laboratory, quit. As a result, only one experienced doctor remained in the unit with 11 seriously ill children. Our foundation was promptly involved in resolving this crisis situation. We have negotiated and are ready to promptly send new doctors, nurses and laboratory technicians to hospitals in Vilnius, Verona and Minsk. Also, we paid for an urgent visit by a delegation of Italian hematologists-transplantologists, to assess the situation and provide advice to help the remaining employees of the department in treating children (as well as assessing the request for staff education).

We will continue to help the BMT Unit of Okhmatdyt and will organize all the necessary educational activities in order to promptly train the new staff of the department and for the children to continuously receive quality medical assistance.

Also, in September, we paid for four doctors (a neurosurgeon, an endovascular surgeon, an ophthalmologist and a chemotherapist) a trip to Lausanne (Switzerland) for a workshop on intraarterial chemotherapy for children with retinoblastomas. And now we are working on the introduction of this type of treatment in Ukraine. We want, as a result, children do not need to go abroad for treatment and lose time while their parents are looking for money to travel.

All this time we are making contact with doctors, collecting information about their needs, preparing a calendar of events for 2019: doctors and nurses will be able to prepare in advance and apply for the program on a competitive basis.

And we have a new member of our team! Meet Anastasia Semenets who joined us and coordinate work with doctors and working groups from hospitals.

Thank you for your support!
