During September this year, Gondar University Hospital’s Audit Team hosted individuals from Ndola Hospital, Zambia for Clinical Audit Training. 

Clinical Audit began in Gondar Hospital following training and support given by Dr Elaine Carter of the Leicester-Gondar Link and later with the support of the Clinical Audit Support Centre run by Stephen Ashmore and Tracy Ruthven.

Ndola Hospital in Zambia is partnered with Guys & St Thomas Hospital NHS Trust and part of the WHO supported Patient Safety initiative.  Berth and Mbao from Nbola Hospital, received a 5-day “Advanced Clinical Audit” training programme from Addisu Alemu and Dr Sisay Yifru at Gondar Hospital.

The feedback from the training programme was excellent and both participants developed an action plan and plan to share the skills and knowledge their have learned with their employees and colleagues in their own hospital.
This is a fantastic example of how a small intervention from the Leicester-Gondar

Link programme is creating a bigger ever expanding impact across the continent.  Gondar Hospital is very keen encourage more institutions across Africa to develop clinical audit as part of their push to improve patient safety.
