Education & Training

 

We believe in keeping our healthcare professionals abreast of the latest developments by funding their training at courses, conferences, seminars and workshops either locally or overseas. These types of training have allowed our healthcare professionals to gain new knowledge, which can be shared and applied to improve the delivery of care to patients. These trainings may not receive financial support from the Ministry of Health but we see their value and have accordingly apportioned funds from the Fund for this purpose.

 

Empowering Minds, Changing Lives

 

Examples of staff and patients who have benefited through training:


  • We sponsored a nurse clinician through the NCIS Cancer Fund for a Master's degree in Advanced Nursing to learn more above palliative care, on how to improve the quality of life for cancer patients.
  • Dosimetrists are specialists who operate the sophisticated radiation equipment used for radiotherapy. They are required to have a good knowledge of mathematics and physics to be able to calculate the exact dose of radiation each patient needs. The Fund also sponsors our dosimetrists for their certification examinations by the Medical Dosimetrist Certification Board. This ensures that our dosimetrists are fully qualified to deliver a high level of care to our patients.
  • Our staff comprising of clinicians, nurses, physicists, radiation therapists and allied health professionals gain knowledge at regular conferences and meetings like those organised by the American Society of Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology. Subsidies from us help offset the cost of attending such meetings for our staff to continually upgrade their knowledge and skills, which translates to better care for our patients.
