Delta Hospital Auxiliary has been very progressive in encouraging all our volunteers to attend training programs which will improve and assist their volunteer work. Each year a number of volunteers attend the BC Association of Healthcare Auxiliaries conferences and it in turn encourages both team effort and new ideas.
In addition to assisting our own volunteers, the Auxiliary provides $9,000 for student bursaries to assist those who are entering the healthcare field and $3,000 for the staff of Delta Hospital to upgrade their skills. In 2014, we provided $2,000 for an Air Way training course for emergency room staff.
Education is always a wise investment of money and we recognize the constant need for funding in order to keep up with the many changes within the medical field.
