From a letter received by Sylvie Lambert:
On behalf of the Planning Committee of the 2008 GANES Educating the Future Nursing and Health Workforce: a Global Challenge Conference, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for submitting an abstract for the conference.
I am pleased to inform you that your abstract, "Canadian and Tanzanian nurses optimizing pain management: Description of a partnered approach", has been chosen as part of the program for the 2008 GANES Educating the Future Nursing and Health Workforce: a Global Challenge Conference.
Sylvie Lambert worked with nurses and other health professionals at TANWAT Hospital in the autumn of 2007 and winter of 2008 to design and present workshops on pain assessment and management. The training focused on basic pain concepts as well as the implementation of techniques based on the latest research from McGill University affiliated teaching hospitals.
McGill Nurses for Highlands Hope will be supporting the visit of two graduate students in Nursing Sciences to TANWAT in September. These students will continue advancing the McGill-Highlands Hope partnered approach to nursing research and education.
