e-Learning Anaesthesia helps clinicians in Tanzania

Anaesthesia residents at the Kilimanjaro Christian Medical Centre (KCMC) in Tanzania are benefitting from using e-Learning Anaesthesia (e-LA) thanks to eIntegrity and the Radboud University Medical Center in Holland.

Radboud University has used e-LA to support specialty training in Holland for many years. The University has also made this resource available to the KCMC, which is located in one of the poorest parts of the world. The Dutch anaesthetists have been providing both funding and mentoring for their African counterparts. This has significantly strengthened KCMC's learning resources and tools.

Ansbert Sweetbert Ndebea, from the KCMC, said: “The programme is helping us to improve our skills and provide better patient care...The content is good and there are lots of videos and animations too. The material is continually updated and the assessments help us to prepare for exams. It’s great that we have access to a top-quality resource that is used internationally.”
