An excellent example of international health care cooperation is evident in Panama City this week, where Hadassah Panama is hosting a seminar in trauma medicine at Hospital Santo Tomas. Hadassah Hospital in Jerusalem has sent over experts in the field to provide a focused curriculum for Panamanian doctors and nurses. In addition, those clinicians will spend time in the emergency room and wards, working side by side with local doctors and nurse to compare protocols and real-time delivery of care.
This is the fourth year this program has been run. Clinicians from hospitals throughout the country have found value in these sessions. Over 700 doctors and nurses attended the first session in 2007, a rate that has persisted each year.
