The Network for Improving Quality of Care for Maternal, Newborn and Child Health (Quality of Care Network), is organizing a webinar on ‘Point of care quality improvement for maternal and newborn health – Step 3: Developing and testing changes’.
The last two webinars have described the identification of problems, setting up teams for improvement, and measurement. This webinar will focus on developing and testing changes to improve the quality of care.

The speakers will present the steps that quality improvement teams can take to identify some changes that they think will lead to quality improvement in their facility, review those change ideas and test them for adoption or adaptation to their settings. The speakers will share recent examples of quality improvement processes.

The webinar will introduce participants to:

· How to develop ideas about what to change to reach your aim

· How to test these changes using Plan-Do-Study-Act(PDSA) cycles

The presentations will be followed by a Q & A session.
