Episode 130 hosts Cameron Glover, CEO of Interplast Australia.
Interplast is a charity that provides life-saving and changing surgery across 17 countries in the Asia Pacific region. Their teams of volunteer plastic surgeons, anaesthetists, nurses and allied health professionals also train and upskill the local medical services to provide longer term and improved care.
In partnership with local organisations including hospitals, universities and local NGOs, Interplast's mission is to ‘repair bodies and rebuild lives’ by providing surgical services for those who could not otherwise afford or access them. They also strengthen the capacity of the local medical systems through training and mentoring programs.
Cameron shares his journey throughout this transformative organisation, from the surgeries on offer and the biggest challenges for his teams working in developing countries, to their community education programs such as burns prevention and management.
With international travel now on hold, we also hear how COVID-19 has affected Interplast's mission and how telehealth has helped facilitate operations and training.
