education operating room nursing

  1. I'm a Belgian (Europe) nurse working in operating room in hospital at Brussels.
    In my freetime I'm going to Africa to work with a surgical team in rural hospitals.
    One of our goals there is to give education to the local nurses working in theatre.
    Therefore I need some Englisch documentation concerning all basic topics for theatre.
    From August 6th to 15 th I'm visiting family in Raleigh (NC).
    I would like to meet some nurse who can give me the documentation I need or someone who can give me some tips to a good medical bookshop.Don't worry I want to pay for it if necesarry.
    So if you think you can help me please contact me.
    More infomation about organisation I'm working for see the website www.azv.be (Englisch version available). Thanks anyway.
