Resilience in: Obstetric Skills project

Goal: Maximising impact and sustainability of phase 1, Excellence in: Obstetric Skills

Duration: 1 year

Partner: Kitovu Health Care Complex, Masaka District and Masaka Regional Referral Hospital

Funder: The Tropical Health & Education Trust (THET)

Outcomes

This is a live project and outcomes and final outcomes are being monitored.
Early outcomes are:

  • All maternity unit staff at partner hospitals trained
  • Establishment of Continuing Medical Education (CME) in maternal health at partner hospitals, delivered by Master Trainers
  • 10 new Master Trainers trained and delivering training
  • Referral workshop initiated and action plans have been set to improve communication between centres referring patients

 

Programme

The training during phase 2 was delivered by Ugandan Master Trainers, increasing the local ownership of the program. This was quality assured by UK partners on placements during the training. 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.
