The Namibian Interventional Society of Cath Lab Professionals (NISCAP) team kicked off with their first Workshop for 2017, on the 8th of April at Windhoek Country Club.  More than 50 healthcare professionals attended the workshop.

Our special guest were Kerry Moir (Radiographer from South Africa, ISCAP) and Llewellyn Holt from AXIM whom presented in addition to the local team which included Dr Simon Beshir. In addition, Kerry spend the Friday at Roman Catholic cath lab imparting her knowledge as radiographer. Thank you for investing of your personal time!

Boston Scientific, Torque Medical and Axim made the meeting possible through unconditional educational grants.

We wish to specially note David Raath from Boston continued hands on support and guidance. Through his encouragement, we strive towards continually enhancing our education and ultimately treatment received by Namibian cardiology patients. 

George Nel and Joh-Ann Nice from PASCAR continue with excellent organisational support.  

A short history was given of how Roman Catholic Hospital & Windhoek Central Hospital health professionals established the Allieds Association; NISCAP, last year, 2016 with the valued support and guidance from Industry: Boston Scientific, PASCAR and ISCAP. 

In a nutshell, the Society once again brought together Allieds (nurses, radiographers, clinical technologists) from the private and public cath lab to ensure continuous professional development of all professionals dealing with the interventional cardiology patient, share experiences, learned from congresses and workshops, to ultimately be on par with international standards, to improve skills and development. 

This workshop of 8 April 2017 was titled “Advancing together in one accord”, because we are still advancing together by sharing and bringing forward informative sessions.  And you would agree with me that it was a great success!
