The mentorship program was conducted in UHMG one- shop- centres all over Uganda, to equip and build capacity of health providers. Two mentorship programs took place in January 29th – 11th February 2017 and 29th May – 02nd June 2017. The post-training mentorship goal was to assess knowledge and skills retention, assess if the health workers apply what they have learned in their routine clinic responsibilities, and assess and reinforce both knowledge and skills of these health workers. In addition, to develop work plans for quality improvement.
The specific objectives of the post-training mentorship were:
- To ensure that the 24 UHMG-supported trainees are able to consistently provide comprehensive emergency obstetric care and newborn care at their facilities;
- To ensure that trainees are able to explain the provision of quality emergency obstetric and newborn care within the framework of sexual and reproductive health and rights while addressing the three delays model.
- To review action plans drawn during the training, so as to determine if they have been achieved, and develop new action plan for further quality improvement.
