Refresher course for nurses underway

INJAN, May 19: Nurses of Seva Kendra Arunachal East (SKAE) are participating in a fortnight-long refresher course which got underway at Krick and Bourry Memorial Hospital (KBMH) here in Changlang district on 15 May.
SKAE is the social service wing of the Miao diocese. The nurses are serving at 17 primary health centres in 160 interior villages of the state.
On the first day of training, gynaecologist Dr Rose Tom and KBMH chief nurse Sr Elizabeth explained to the nurses the procedures of providing proper antenatal care to expectant mothers.
