With the support of VIVA Foundation, Sister Laura Tan, Senior Nurse Educator from the National University Health System, has been running the Paediatric Oncology Nursing Course. It is a course which aims to provide registered nurses with specialized knowledge and skills to deliver safe and competent care to children with cancer in the hospitals.
Since 2007, the course has helped to train 68 nurses locally and regionally from Asia, including nurses from Brunei, India, Indonesia, Philippines and Brunei. Through this course, VIVA Foundation hopes that more nurses in Singapore and Asia will be able to deliver the best level of nursing care for children with cancer.
