Caring Meds: International Projects
Project #1 – Fountainhead Christian University – School of Nursing of Nursing Program
Fountainhead Christian University has been approved by the government of Ghana to establish a nursing program on their campus. They have TWO major infrastructure needs that will make this program a REALITY:
The program needs the necessary healthcare equipment and supplies to facilitate training for its nursing students. We have partnered with several organizations in the United States that will assist Caring Meds with securing those resources. In addition, we estimate that we will need to ship a 40-foot cargo container of equipment and supplies. The cost for phase 1 will be $50,000.
Fountainhead Christian University has an existing building that must be outfitted for healthcare educational services as well as a medical clinic. The clinic will serve to train healthcare professionals as well as provide medical care to the residents of Tema, Ghana. The estimated cost of the construction project is $500,000 dollars. The facility will serve to provide multiple medical and dental services. In addition, it will have the capability to provide minor outpatient surgical services. In addition, there will be spaces to provide telemedicine services.
Project #2 – School of Nursing Telemedicine Program
To provide the most up -to -date healthcare educational services Caring Meds will facilitate the development of a telemedicine program at the university. The Program will allow volunteer faculty in the United States to offer clinical rotations to nursing students. In addition, it will allow Caring Meds to establish virtual clinics to provide care to residents. For example, a hypertension clinic can be provided using telemedicine technology to evaluate patients with high blood pressure and track their control of blood pressures.
Project #3 – School of Nursing Distance Learning Program
Caring Meds will facilitate partnerships between academic institutions in the United States and Fountainhead University. The Partnership will involve US institutions sponsoring distance learning nursing classes at the university. These classes will supplement the classes offered on site at Fountainhead University.
