Teaching is the principal function of Open Heart International in Myanmar. We provide numerous lectures and hands on work shops. At the same time, we are there in cardiac theatres, the cath lab, and wards. Importantly, we work along side the Myanmar health practitioners, and provide them with quality assurance. Teaching them smarter methods to adopt, and help rescue arising complications. All this is done in a respectful and Australian manner.

Clinical Educator, Emma Smith, on the right with the Australian Ambassador, teaches everything with a critical thinking focus. In any clinical situation, Emma wants her students to ask themselves ‘Why?’ and ‘What are we going to do about it?’
