Hey VPNGers! Happy New Year to you!
This article outlines an initiative from a US hospital. Most of us are up on the Blue Towel initiative that was started here in Victoria (VPNG's local Bendigo Bank sells them!). We invite you to share with other Members the different things your department are doing that are contributing to the community 🙂
VPNG's department donate items for a Christmas Hamper, which is then raffled off. Each year the money raised is donated to a different local charity. And someone in the department gets their Christmas lunch taken care of! In 2019 the winner donated the hamper to a local refugee support group who shared the goods with 4 refugee families.
VPNG's department also collect clean items that might have been opened in error, or are at expiry, such as atraumatics and needles, syringes and gloves. These are distributed to local wildlife carers and the local rescue group vet clinic.
Let's brainstorm ideas!

In early 2021, Safer Care Victoria will be conducting a public awareness campaign for breast implant-associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL), a rare form of non-Hodgkin lymphoma.

The goals of the campaign are to:

· inform patients of their risk of BIA-ALCL

· outline pathways for seeking clinical advice.

The campaign may result in people who have breast implants seeking medical advice. The fact sheet attached outlines details of the symptoms and risk of BIA-ALCL as well as offering advice for supporting people who may present for review and treatment.
