• Maternal Mortality in Malawi
• PROMPT Australia

• Developing capacity and capability

Delegates will gain an overview of international approaches to QI in maternity services.

After this session, participants will be able to:

1. Understand the complexity of establishing multidisciplinary collaboratives, underpinned with metrics and measurement strategy

2. Understand global perspective on approaches to perinatal quality and safety, with opportunities to take this learning and apply it locally

3. Create capacity and capability to upscale local programmes in order to share learning and minimise variation in outcomes and patient experience
