ECU – Sri Lanka Conducts Workshop for Nurses

Edith Cowan University (ECU) – Sri Lanka, one of the country’s most prestigious higher education institutes, offering full Australian degree programmes in Sri Lanka, recently hosted a workshop for the nursing staff of the Sri Jayewardenepura General Hospital. The event was conducted with the intention of helping to promote professional development in the nursing profession, as Sri Lanka’s medical system comes under strain due to the presently emerging crises. Over 50 nursing personnel from the Hospital participated in the programme, which was held on the 29th of June 2022 at the Hospital Auditorium. The Nursing Workshop was conducted as part of ECU’s wider social sustainability and sustainable skills development programmes, and also to support the Institute’s own Nursing Programme.

Commenting on the initiative, Mayumi Perera, Academic Programme Convenor, Nursing at ECU – Sri Lanka said, “Our healthcare sector is facing multiple challenges at this time. Therefore, the role of the nurse has become very challenging and crucial. Thus, professional development should be a key focus area for nurses, particularly for our nurses to be involved in the decision-making and patient care process, hand-in-hand with doctors and other health care professionals. The aim of these educational interventions is to support and inspire people to grow into smart individuals to help uplift the development of Sri Lankan Health Care and Nursing.

As a premier educational institute offering Australian qualifications in Sri Lanka, we believe that we have a moral duty to ensure sustainable skills and professional development and the creation of new opportunities. Thus, we are pleased to have been able to conduct this workshop, and we look forward to many other initiatives in the future.”
