Managing, preventing and controlling viral haemorrhagic fevers in resource-limited settings. “An essential item for your clinic and hospital shelves.”—Prof Dale Fisher
How it works
Lloyd Kaseke Clinical Advisor, Life Healthcare
At Life Healthcare, we had 252 maternity nurses completing PEP in 2012 and aim to have 300 complete PEP in 2013. We are determined that by the end of 2014, every one of our maternity nurses must have completed the Maternal Care and Newborn Care courses.
Ruth Davidge Founding President, Neonatal Nurses Association of South Africa
The PEP course offers basic, simple to use, self study educational resources primarily in maternal and neonatal care that can be used at any level. It has been used by thousands of health care workers in South Africa and beyond to improve their knowledge and skills. In the last couple of years I have incorporated it into our basic neonatal training course in KZN with good effect.
Vanessa Booysen Provincial Neonatal Nursing Specialist, Free State
I have made the PEP course a compulsory self-study programme that has to be done by all healthcare workers working with mothers and babies in the Free State… Manapo Hospital in QwaQwa is a success story where we successfully reduced the neonatal mortality rate by 66% in only three months.
