Last month, C2C Co-founder, Elizabeth Sheehan, accompanied some of our Board Directors on a trip to visit our clinics in Haiti. The mission of the trip is to interact with C2C’s medical staff and engage in dialogue about perception and communication, patient interaction, and core values. The board team also toured C2C clinics in Camp Coq and Acul Du Nord, as well as the newest clinic in Cap-Haitien.
As an organization, C2C regularly measure and evaluate clinic performance to ensure we achieve our primary goal: to provide the best possible services to patients. The board along with C2C’s Haiti medical team participated in a series of workshops led by Dr. Calvaire, C2C Country Director, and Marie Marthe St. Cyr, C2C Board Director. Dr. Calvaire has extensive experience in medical practice and management. Ms. St. Cyr’s speaks fluent Haitian Kreyol and has a long history of promoting the social and economic empowerment of the Haitian community.
The workshops focused on the role of language and culture and how to effectively communicate with vulnerable people during patient interactions. Dialogue also explored the standard protocol for patient visits to understand how the care-provider can effectively apply C2C core values while educating and treating patients. These interactions give our teams the opportunity to make more effective clinical decisions while building strong long-term relationships with our patients.
