The clinicians on placements have also undertaken outreach visits to referring centres to provide mentorship and improve the referral process.
The endline assessment of this programme will demonstrate final impact. The ROS project will be evaluated and lessons learned which will feed in to future initiatives with our partners. These will focus on embedding the skill and knowledge sharing within existing local structures to ensure sustainability which is locally directed and driven.
