Portuguese support allows Cape Verdean nurses to specialize in oncology – Observer

A protocol between the Escola Superior de Enfermagem do Porto, the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation and the Portuguese Institute of Oncology has allowed four nurses from a hospital on the island of Sao Vicente in Cape Verde to specialize in oncology.

It came at the right time for me because we have had patients here in Sao Vicente who have been treated in Praia and in Portugal, and when they come back there is a need for continuity. Although we don’t have chemotherapy on the island, we have an oncology service, more in the sense of palliative care,” explained Lusa Nilza Delgado, a nurse with 17 years of experience at Dr. J. Baptista de Souza Hospital, Mindelo, and one of the new graduates .

The completion of the Postgraduate Course in Oncology Nursing for Portuguese-speaking African Countries (PALOP), including four specialists from this hospital, in accordance with this protocol, was celebrated this Monday with a hybrid implementation, including with the participation of San Vicente. , I PALOP Cancer Care Congress.

Expats to PALOP sent 27 million in May, up 14.2%.

You should also try to shorten your hospital stay due to signs and symptoms. Because sometimes patients arrive, sign up for the oncology service in San Vicente, and then disappear, and no one knows where they are. So the goal is to treat these patients, provide information by speaking and listening, and taking care of them,” the nurse said.

For these Cape Verdean nurses, building support capacity and the psychological and emotional support that cancer patients need to be given were the highlights of this last year of training, completed with the support of Portuguese organizations.

It was not easy because we are professionals, heads of families, and yet, due to the pandemic, we had to go to online classes. It was intense. Half work in shifts and the other half work as usual, and we had to stick to schedules,” said Darlene Gomez, another of the nurses who graduated from graduate school.

“We know that with this training our patients will benefit too. We hope to bring additional value to the hospital and patients, because the nurse is involved in the rehabilitation, recovery and health promotion of patients. We promote their autonomy so that they feel welcome even after treatment,” he stressed.
