This was a one week urology trip to Gizo hospital from 19th – 16th of June 2016. Overseas volunteers on this team consisted of Dr Tim Nicholson, (DAISI chair and urologist from Orange), and his daughter and surgical registrar Dr Jacqueline Nicholson, anaesthetist Dr Ian Carter, and scrub nurse Loveness Mhako.

This was Dr Nicholson’s third trip to Gizo, and the least busy of his trips so far. Although only 13 cases in total were performed during the one week visit, many of which were not purely urological, the less rushed pace allowed allowed extra time for teaching. Unfortunatlely, the urology team from Honiara did not attend for teaching and participation as planned.

Two of the SPC’s were performed by Gizo RMO’s and one by Dr J. Nicholson. Urethral catheterisation with introducer was also taught as well as the technique of guidewire insertion into bladder and IDC over the guidewire.
