After conducting the workshops our team will keep working with the 64 healthcare professionals who attended, to support them to cascade the training to some 250 people across the country. They will visit as many facilities as they can to help mentor their trainees and will offer remote support and guidance to those they are unable to visit in person. This will help to ensure the sustainability and longevity of the training.
This training has been commissioned by the Ministry of Health and Sanitation (MoHS) so King’s will be working closely with them in both the development and implementation stages. The MoHS will review and validate the training materials developed by our team as well as helping to identify the healthcare professionals who will be attending. We have a history of good collaboration with the National Emergency Medical Service (NEMS) who run the ambulance service in Sierra Leone and the MoHS, through our work in developing the referral coordinators network, and we are looking forward to this opportunity to continue to work alongside them on these health system strengthening projects.
