4 hired interpreters were present to assist with interpretation into Luganda during the course. English language fluency was variable among participants. HBB2 facilitator materials are being left in Uganda for local clinic in-charge to use in teaching more providers in the future. Lunch was provided during the class, and while this allowed participants to stay longer, some participants were very tired after lunch. Two participants left early and did not complete the OSCEs. Knowledge check was not collected, but used as a self-assessment prior to the training. Due to time constraints, each participant completed either OSCE A or OSCE B.

Bring extra bag masks in case there are last minutes additions to the number of course participants.

Bring copies of posters for participants to hang up in their home clinics
The nurse and midwife categories were all nursing students in either certificate, diploma or midwifery programs.  They gain so much confidence and share this with the hospital staff.  11 of the Maternity staff nurses were also taught.
Teaching nursing diploma midwifery students is a wonderful opportunity for them to gain confidence and be exposed to evidenced based research and practice. Also taught ECSB.
Small groups maximize learning:  Lots of time for building trust, providing additional scenarios, and answering questions. 
Training the trainer is being realized. Now there are 2 nursing faculty at Lacor St. Mary's School of Nursing that are  teaching the course without us! This is our 4th year teaching the nursing students and faculty Helping Babies Breathe. I selected other as these are nursing students about to graduate, 32 were nurse midwife students .

Providing the book in advance is very helpful when teaching nursing students in Uganda. Setting up on going practice sessions for students after the training improved their time in providing Golden Minute.
