Muscat – Sultan Qaboos Comprehensive Cancer Care and Research Centre (SQCCCRC) has obtained the international licence as an accredited centre to provide ALERT training programme specialised in monitoring and managing serious events that threaten the lives of patients in health institutions.
Twelve employees from the centre obtained the international licence as certified trainers for the ALERT programme after the Training and Academic Development Department organised a training programme, in cooperation with Portsmouth Hospital affiliated with the University Trust – United Kingdom.
