The Quality of Care Network, through its global Learning Platform, is building a community of health practitioners across all levels of service delivery, to harvest local implementation ideas and share experiences within and across countries. As part of the learning activities, the Network is planning to have a series of webinars on selected topics on quality of care improvement from a country perspective, as well as quality improvement implementation science.
The first webinar series will be on steps to improving quality of care in health facilities.
This first webinar will seek to explore what quality improvement (QI) is and how health care workers can start and establish quality improvement at health facility level. The speaker will highlight the organizational changes that are required, and outline how teams can use problem solving processes and techniques in order to demonstrate and sustain improvement. The presentation will be followed by a Q & A session where participants will have the opportunity to interact further with the speaker.
Presenter: Nigel Livesley, Regional Director for South Asia for the USAID Applying Science to Strengthen Health Systems project implemented by University Research Co. For the past 15 years, Nigel has focused on strengthening the ability of various health systems in Africa and Asia to use quality improvement approaches to deliver better care. He is interested in how health workers can use QI methods to solve problems within they clinics and communities and how governments and other organizations can support the spread of QI methods.
Who should join: Health practitioners and managers. Feel free to circulate this invitation to your colleagues working on quality of care!
The Quality of Care Network brings together countries and implementing partners to deliver the vision that “Every mother and newborn receives quality care throughout the pregnancy, childbirth and postnatal periods”. The Quality of Care Network is led by nine countries (Bangladesh, Côte d’Ivoire, Ethiopia, Ghana, India, Malawi, Nigeria, Tanzania and Uganda), and supports the implementation of national plans for quality improvement. Its Learning Platform brings together health practitioners from the facility level and up, to develop evidence-based, context-specific strategies for improvement of quality of care.
