Comprehensive Cleft Care Workshop (CCCW)

Our first South African Comprehensive Cleft Care Workshop (CCCW) offers a unique opportunity to emerging and intermediate providers to gain knowledge and develop competency. Sessions are geared towards cleft care specialties, with an emphasis on an integrated team approach.

Our approach to cleft care is based on evidence and experience that the best cleft care is provided by an integrated team of specialists that includes surgery, dentistry, orthodontics, pediatrics, speech pathology, psychology, nursing, and anesthesiology.

Capetown attendees will be immersed in 2 days of interactive didactic and applied training, with hands-on simulation sessions and Grand Masters round table discussions. Expert faculty conduct detailed case reviews and provide one-on-one feedback to attendees.

23. Safety Information

There are a few different ways to get around Cape Town, depending on your budget and needs. If you’re travelling on a tight budget, the best option is to use the bus system. Bus tickets are relatively cheap, and you can use them to get around the city quite easily.

 

  • Avoid carrying large sums of cash, don’t carry cameras in plain sight and do not leave belongings unattended.
  • Heed the advice of your hosts, Cape Town Tourism Visitor Centre staff, or locals on where to go after dusk. Avoid walking in deserted and dark places at night. Park in a secure, well-lit area with street guards.
  • Never allow strangers to assist you in any way at ATMs or cash points.
  • Street children and beggars may approach you for a handout. If you wish to help, consider giving food, donating to a registered charity or contact Cape Town Tourism for advice.
  • Keep copies of all valuable documents in a safe place.
  • When exploring Table Mountain National Park, take a map, comfortable walking shoes, a few friends and a charged mobile phone.
  • When hiking, be prepared for weather that can change rapidly, even in summer. Bring along enough water and sunblock, as well as something warm to wear. Start heading back well before dark and don’t venture away from the demarcated paths. Tell a friend or your host where you are going and when you expect to be back.
  • Load the Table Mountain National Park emergency number +27(0)861 106 417 into your mobile phone before departing on a hike. Cape Town Tourism and Protection and Emergency Services run a Visitor Support Programme to assist you, should you be involved in any incident during your stay.

 

Please visit the Cape Town Tourist Centre for more information and tips during your stay.
