It was such an honour to be invited to this mid year conference. Even though I was not the first choice and came in as a replacement for my convenor, it was an opportunity not to be missed. Thank you again PSA!
What made me keen was its location ie in Cebu Island. It was my opportunity to be back in Philippines and this time to explore Cebu. The last time I was here it was just as transit before taking the ferry to Leyte during the Haiyan/Yolanda disaster.
The first day, me and Amjad (the other invited facilitator from India) lead a session in Cebu Vincent Sotto Hospital live demo of simple blocks. It was a bit nerve wrecking for me because the blocks have to work! Haha The whole programme went well. I must say i am impressed of how the AV team handled the programme. Im sure this is not the first time. It is definitely more class than what i have done in Malaysia's workshops before.
We had 6 blocks to do. Each of us did 3. I did a femoral, Ilioinguinal iliohypogastric and axillary. The ilioinguinal was very challenging as I had an obese patient. It was like being on a boat on a rough sea day! Haha The target was challenging and i believe the audience saw it! Haha All in all, i enjoed the workshop a lot and of course the weight was lifted when everything was done!
Thank you again to PSA and the organizers! I enjoyed my time here and hopefully I will be invited again in coming years!
