Thursday was the last day of The Excellence in Obstetric Skills course. We spent the past three days observing the training being delivered by the RCOG and Ugandan faculty. We have both learnt lots about emergency obstetric care from the course. Nisha has successfully delivered her first (pretend!) breech baby and done a neonatal resuscitation and Amy has been a mother with a prolapsed umbilical cord and learnt how to resolve an inverted uterus.
We have been making lots of field notes and starting to collect data from the course. We have also conducted a focus group with the course delegates to find out their experiences.
Mind you it has been raining lots here too but it’s much warmer and the views are amazin
