CAN launches new specialized courses for dentists, nurses

KUWAIT: Chairman of the Board of Cancer Aware Nation (CAN), Dr. Khalid Al-Saleh, spoke about the launch of new specialized courses for dentists and nurses during the month of April in cooperation with the Health Ministry. Al-Saleh said the courses aimed at training dentists and nurses on communication skills with patients and their families, particularly cancer patients.

Al-Saleh said 1,450 dentists have been trained on early detection of oral cancer, and 2,635 nurses were also trained. The courses are within the framework of carrying on with CAN’s approach to achieve its goal of promoting cancer awareness, which includes specialized courses for dentists about visual detection of oral tumors.

Al-Saleh said CAN trains nurses on communication skills with cancer patients and their families, in addition to having an integrated program presented by oncologists to the trainees that includes identification of cancer, its stages, and the rate of occurrence in Kuwait and around the world, as well as means of diagnosis, treatment, prevention, early detection and the rate of cure.

Al-Saleh said caring for training nurses is due to their proximity to the patient and his family, as well as doctors. Nurses are the ones who administer prescribed medicines, so they are the pillars of delivering treatment. Dr. Khalid Al-Saleh thanked the Health Ministry for its interest in training its employees to refresh their knowledge and give them the required skills they needed.
