These guidelines and training curriculum were developed by FIGO LOGIC to guide health professionals in their efforts to assess quality of care in their own service, and to help health staff conduct reviews of maternal death cases occurring in their health facility.
The FIGO LOGIC (Leadership in Obstetrics and Gynaecology for Impact and Change) Maternal Death Review Guidelines and Maternal Death Review Training Curriculum were published in early September 2013. The practical guidelines aim to support clinicians, health systems and facility administrators, MNCH programme managers, NGOs and policy makers in assessing quality of care in their own settings, and build their capacity to conduct maternal death reviews at facility-level. The training curriculum is designed to accompany these guidelines and support their implementation in practice.
Together, they are key tools to support local stakeholders to move forward with MDSR implementation in their own contexts. The tools were field tested in Cameroon with the support of the Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Cameroon.
