Crosspoint Global Health (CGH) trains health workers to be servant leaders through healthcare mission seminars, skill improvement workshops, and service learning programs.
In 2014 our health worker pilot training project in Ankaase began at the Methodist Reading Town Library with 65 participants representing most departments from the Ankaase Hospital. Topics focused on concerns with food security and malnutrition, and gastrointestinal bleeding, plus skill development with injection technique, and surgery. This program was highly successful as evaluated by participants. The next year 100 health workers from Ankaase Hospital and other sister clinics in the region joined for a 2 day program at the Reading Town Library. Department leaders from the hospital joined the Crosspoint Global Health team in presenting clinical reviews in medical, nursing and chaplaincy care. The training expanded again in 2016 to target representatives from all Methodist Health Service personnel in Ghana. Fifty five health workers received certificates for the program on chronic disease management that was presented by Crosspoint Global Health and Methodist Health Service leaders in Kumasi, Ghana. In 2017, the theme was child health and survival for our collaborative training program again at the Freeman Centre in Kumasi, Ghana. Over 70 mid-level providers, like physician assistants, nurses, midwives and pharmacy technicians from Methodist Health facilities around Ghana, received certificates for this 3 day training.
Crosspoint Global Health also collaborates with the Methodist Church Ghana and TMS Global to provide healthcare mission training for interested medical and university students on the field in Ghana. Our pilot program is in 2017. CGH needs support for leadership travel and training expenses. If you would like to financially support this project, please contact us using the contact form below.
