Hear from Bongani Chikwapulo, Fellowship graduate from Malawi

We are delighted to share how the Fellowship Programme has benefitted Bongani Chikwapulo, Fellowship graduate from Malawi.

 

What did you find most beneficial?
External evaluation systems, patient safety, and leading for quality and safety modules.

What did you like most about the programme?
It was a privilege to be part of this programme, my knowledge in QI was challenged. I appreciated most of the facilitators. They showed that they have a lot of experience and expertise in QI. In addition, I enjoyed the case study response and publication reviews because they forced me to reflect on what I learned and relate to my experience.  

Have you been able to apply anything you learned to your role?
Yes, I have started applying several things that I have learned in the course. One thing is the process to follow when developing evaluation standards. Since 2021, Malawi has been developing national accreditation for all levels of care, and I have been using the principles leant in the module to lead the adaptation process. The knowledge gained has helped clarify some of the steps during consultations meetings with stakeholders.
