WEBINAR SERIES: Point of care quality improvement for maternal and newborn health

This webinar, presented on June 15th and hosted by WHO's Quality of Care Network, was the fourth webinar in a series on capacity building for improving quality of care in health facilities, and discussed developing and testing changes to improve the quality of care.

  • How to develop ideas about what to change to reach your aim
  • How to test these changes using Plan-Do-Study-Act(PDSA) cycles
