Summary

By providing professional development workshops for nursing/midwifery faculty and practicing nurse/midwife hospital clinicians, we hope to continue improving health care outcomes in Liberia. Faculty share updated skills and knowledge with their student populations for a multiplier effect that will reach several hundred soon-to-be health care professionals. Supervisory nurses and midwives will share their newly acquired knowledge with their front-line staff producing another multiplier effect.

Challenge

Maternal mortality in Liberia is 725 deaths per 100,000 and neonatal mortality is 37 deaths per 1000 births (WHO, 2017). Midwives and nurses in Liberia provide primary care for all ages. Professional development for the renewal of licenses is not mandatory in Liberia, leading to a gap in the provision of quality care. There is a critical shortage of continuing professional development for nurses and midwives and teaching faculty. Well-prepared faculty educate competent nurses & midwives.

Solution

Improving the teaching and testing skills of nursing/midwifery faculty who have not have had the opportunity to obtain a master's degree education or who have not attended a formal continuing professional development (CPD) training will help them become more competent teachers. This project will provide up to date training, education and skill development for both faculty and clinicians. It will ensure continuous professional competency as a way of improving healthcare outcomes in Liberia.

Long-Term Impact

Faculty members from nursing/midwifery schools, attended similar workshops in January 2020 & 2021, sharing updated skills and knowledge with their ongoing student populations for a multiplier effect that reached several hundred soon-to-be health care professionals. Conducting workshops for supervisory nurses and midwives in 2022 provided on-the-ground health care workers & their front-line staff with up-to-date knowledge & expertise producing another multiplier effect.
