Keton consulting team led by the C.E.O Antony Jaccodul and Haroun Ayub conducted CME’s in the Western region with the topics of discussion being an in-depth interpretation of ESfEQA results and Root Cause Analysis process.
This activity attracted the medical laboratory fraternity in the Western region having the CMEs conducted at St. Mary’s Mumias Hospital on the 5th November 2019 from 7:00 a.m to 9:30 a.m, another session at Bungoma County Hospital from 3:00 p.m to 5:00 p.m which had participants from the host lab and guests from Bungoma West Hospital and the last session held at Kakamega County Hospital.
The main theme of the CME’s was Quality is not a myth but an intentional journey to change the status quo.
The presentations touched on the calculations and statistical analysis of the report, how to interpret and read the reported graphs, what to look for in the report when analyzing the report and understanding the report page by page. The CME’s went well with positive and an indulging conversation about maintaining quality and how to troubleshoot for errors during the reporting and performance of a Root Cause Analysis process.
Up to 60 participants attended the training sessions and discussed with the Keton on how to improve quality in their laboratories. Their queries were handled effectively and everyone left knowledgeable and able to understand their EQA reports well.
