Lessons Learned

8/26/2019KENYAPatty Kellypttyklly@gmail.com
I announced expectations at beginning of class.  Students adhered to the "on time, no cell phone, etc: list.

Mixture of those that had taken HBB 1st edition and naïve learners.  It has been hard to find protected time to get many staff to come
 
8/4/2018KENYABonnie Munyalobonniemunyalo@gmail.com
I  learnt that mobile applications can be effectively be used to link up trainers to trainees, organise and plan a training and use the same platform to monitor and support HBB implementations at the peripheral health facilities

It was important to emphasize that this course did not make them midwives.

Community Health Workers, Nurses and other staff were very excited to learn!  It was essential to emphasize that this did not make them a midwife -- that it was only for knowledge and as needed.

1 OBGYN Trainer and 1 RN Trainer; 3 RN providers, 1 theater tech.
Small group of highly motivated and eager learners at Nyanchwa SDA Mission Hospital in Kisii, committed to conducting future trainings for their co-workers at Nyanchwa, and HCWs at distant outpost health centers that refer to them.  Most rewarding was the news that 1 day after the course, they were able to 'save' a C-section baby by immediate drying and PPV due to their training, whereas before they would have carried the unresponsive baby to the maternity ward (2 min walk) before beginning resuscitation :)

The participation of a Kenyan Master Trainer was essential.

The hardest concept for the birth attendants to grasp was using the penguin suction. We ended up getting a bowl of water and having them practice getting water inside the penguin. They wanted to squeeze it in the mouth and nose rather than squeezing before inserting and releasing in the mouth/nose.

Importance of involving local stakeholders (MOH, local NGO, existing in-country HBB trainer) in the course from the beginning. It would have been impossible to have a successful and hopefully sustainable course without these players.

I have learned that if a health care provider is empowered through training it will help reduce the number of neonates dying will be reduced.

I learned that there exists a very big gap in capacity building with the view to empowering the health care providers. Nevertheless, many health care providers are excited and ready to embrace technology in modern healthcare delivery systems.

By use of a smart phone, essential resuscitation data can be collected and conveyed to a central server at real time. NB: in Kenya, nurses are trained as both general nurses and midwives

THis was a return visit; 50% of nurse -midwives were refreshers; 50% were HBB-naive.  We were able to leave teaching supplies and equipment with the NIC at Embu as well as to 3 smaller referral centers ( sub-district hospitals; clinics) as identified by the L&D matron and the NIC.  Course taught primarily by local nurse-midwife with our assistance/support.  Primay language English; 50% of teachers also able to teach in kikuyu

This was intended to be a refresher course; however all participants were new learners.  All nurse-midwives rather than "just" midwives (important distinction in Kenya) also 2 pediatric nurses.  One Clinical Officer who would be be in charge on ongoing training. 
 
5/1/2013KENYAPegeen Eslamipegeeneslami@mac.com
THis was a return visit; all 16 nurse-midwives were refreshers rather than new learners.  We assisted the DPHN in running the training; primarily in English though one of our team and of course the DPHN also used Kikuyu on occasion.  We did not resupply learners; instead left training supplies with DPHN and NIC in addition to several smaller clinics and nursing homes (as identified by DPHN and NIC)

LEARNERS READY TO IMPLEMENT THE NEW CHALLENGING EXPERIENCES ACQUIRED AS FAR AS HELPING THE BABY BREATH IS CONCERNED. IN ADDITION, MORE FREQUENT REFRESHER TRAININGS NEEDED TO ENHANCE THE SKILLS AND KNOWLEDGE ACQUIRED.THANK YOU.

I LEARNT THAT AS AN INSTRUCTOR, THE MORE I TRAINED, THE MORE I GOT MORE CONFIDENT AND SKILLED AND HBB GOT MORE INTERESTING TO DEMONSTRATE IN THE ROLE PLAYS WITH THE  LEARNERS APPRECIATING IT MORE!ALSO OLDER LEARNERS ARE QUITE SLOW IN GETTING IT RIGHT, THIS HAPPENED IN MY PREVIOUS TRAINING AND ONE LEARNER, NEARING 80 YEARS OLD (A VOLUNTEER RETIRED MIDWIFE) COULDN'T PERFORM IN THE OSCE A AND SO HE DIDNT DO OSCE B, BUT WITH FOLLOW UP NOW HE IS THE BEST HBB CHAMPION IN HIS FACILITY IN TERMS OF COMMITTMENT, HE KEEPS PRACTISING WITH OTHER HEALTH CARE WORKERS.

THE PRACTICAL APPROACH OF HBB MAKES IT INTERESTING TO THE LEARNERS AND MYSELF AS AN INSTRUCTOR.THE ILLUSTRATION ON THE ACTION PLAN DURING THE GOLDEN MINUTE (YELLOW SECTION) INDICATES A NEONATE BEING VENTILATED WITHOUT KEEPING IT WARM, THE TOWEL IS JUST SPREAD OUT. THIS IS AN OBSERVATION EVEN THE LEARNERS HAVE QUERIED, I SUGGEST IT'S EDITED INTO A NEWBORN COVERED EVERYWHERE EXCEPT THE CHEST REGION TO HELP THE PERSON RESUSCITATING TO SEE THE CHEST MOVEMENT. THIS IS STILL POSSIBLE WITHIN THE GOLDEN MINUTE BECAUSE I HAVE DONE IT AND ACHIEVED THE GOLDEN MINUTE. THANK YOU.
