“Assessing Knowledge of and Attitudes Towards Emergency Obstetric Care Services Among Healthcare Providers at Two District Hospitals in Uganda”

Join Sarah Chuzi and Allie Goodwin (class of 2014) as they present on their research funded by FSM’s International Health Fellowship on Thursday, May 15th from 12-1pm


Sarah Chuzi and Allie Goodwin spent six weeks in Kumi and Kayunga, Uganda, conducting research on the knowledge and attitudes of labor and delivery staff toward WHO's seven markers of emergency obstetric care. They also investigated providers' attitudes toward analgesia during labor and childbirth, as well as when caring for HIV positive mothers. In addition to presenting preliminary data analysis, they will also discuss their experiences conducting qualitative research at their rural Ugandan sites and collaborating with an international IRB.
