Butterfield Bank (Cayman) Limited recently donated funds to the Cayman HospiceCare, making it possible for two of their nurses, Heather Huizinga and Felicia Burton-McLean, to receive valuable training in Dallas, Texas.
The two attended the Annual Nursing Conference of the American Society for Pain Management Nursing on 23-27 March, said a press release from the bank.
This prestigious conference in the field of pain management, encompasses overviews, courses, lectures from international medical leaders and new developments in the context of pain management, related to terminally ill and other patients where pain is the major clinical feature.
The conference was attended by more than 1,000 delegates. Pain management workshops include key exposure for new products and developments.
Both HospiceCare nurses received the End of Life Nursing Education Consortium certificate, taught by the American Association of Colleges of Nursing and The City of Hope Medical Centre.
Butterfield Bank’s Monique Bush commented, ‘We realise the value of the support the HospiceCare gives to people of all ages in our community. We are proud to have been able to support their nurses through this valuable training.’
Cayman HospiceCare is a non-profit organization which provides specialised nursing care, free of charge, for the terminally ill.
‘With two of our nurses now having the latest in pain management information, we are that much better equipped to serve the needs of our patients and their families. Cayman HospiceCare board and staff acknowledge with gratitude the magnanimous sponsorship provided by Butterfield Bank in support of this venture,’ said Jennifer Grant of Cayman HopsiceCare.
