The Network for Improving Quality of Care for Maternal, Newborn and Child Health (Quality of Care Network) is organizing a webinar to explore what Quality Improvement (QI) is and how health care workers can carry out QI at health facility level.
The speaker will highlight the underlying organizational and structures that are required, as well 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. This is the first webinar in a series to look into key issues around quality of care improvement from a country perspective.
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 (QI) 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
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.
