Willemstad – As of June 2018, WGK Academy will officially start with additional training on wound care and administration of medication.
On March 29, 2018, the foundation signed an agreement with Breederode Hogeschool to jointly set up WGK Academy. Breederode Hogeschool specializes in education in care and welfare and has extensive experience in the Caribbean islands. These two organizations have worked closely together to realize this institute. The foundation also keeps a warm heart to Gino Goeloe of Wit Gele Kruis Aruba for his hospitality and cooperation. The lessons provided at WGK Academy are aimed at the further training of staff and also to third parties.
Stichting WGK is the only ISO-certified home care organization in Curaçao and regards it as an important task to guarantee quality to its clients. In 2008 the foundation achieved the first ISO certification and in April 2018 the foundation met the new ISO 2015 standard again. Audits are carried out twice a year to check whether the quality system of the organization is functioning properly.
