THE CBC HEALTH SERVICES IN PARTNERSHIP WITH TRAINING INSTITUTIONS LAUNCHES TRAINING PROGRAMS TO IMPROVE THE QUALITY OF REHABILITATION SERVICES TO PERSONS WITH DISABILITIES IN CAMEROON.
FIRST EVER FORMAL COMMUNITY BASED REHABILITATION COURSE IN CAMEROON
The CBC Health Services and a few other organisations have been providing Community Based Rehabilitation (CBR) services in Cameroon but there have been gaps in the provision of these services. This is largely due to the fact that there is no formal CBR Professional Training course in the country.
The CBC Health Services has decided to close the gap in the rehabilitation landscape in Cameroon by starting the first ever Professional Certificate course in Community Based Rehabilitation as informed by the study carried out to thoroughly assess professional rehabilitation education landscape in Cameroon.
This course will give enable trainees acquire the knowledge, skills, attitude to be able to identify, assess and meet the rehabilitation and empowerment needs of persons with disabilities in the areas of health, education, livelihood, social and empowerment.
The course will be delivered by a wide range of professionals including Baptist Training School for Health Personnel (BTSHP) tutors and CBR staff as well as carefully selected and trained leaders of Organisations of Persons with Disabilities.
Our trainings are competency-based which exposes trainees to high-quality hands-on experience in our renowned hospitals and community based rehabilitation organizations all over Cameroon.
The Baptist Training School for Health Personnel Banso has sufficient space to host this program, both in class rooms, practice rooms and in boarding facilities. In addition, it is strategically situated on the compound of a hospital with access to practice settings and also to co-lecturers and practice supervisors. Students will also go for internships in Community Based Rehabilitation organizations all over Cameroon.
