“Meeting Africa’s Health Care Needs – the Role of the Christian Nurse”. DATE 8 – 13 November. Venue: DRACC ABUJA, NIGERIA. Main speaker: Dr. Olufoye Oyetunde.
There are a number of SALINE trainings scheduled this year within Africa, one took place in Nigeria this month and four(4) NCF Nigerians attended. Another one is coming in July when we hope Ghana can also attend. Zambia’s SALINE training is scheduled to take place in May.
SALINE Process is a training course developed by IHS Global (formerly International Health Services) specifically for the healthcare setting on how to be a witness in the workplace. The Saline Process provides discipleship, training, and coaching for healthcare workers to skilfully and confidently assess the spiritual condition of a patient. By providing practical tools, Saline training enables participants to personalize an approach to share the love of Jesus according to each patient’s needs. Research data is presented which connects spirituality to positive patient health outcomes.
