Dr. Sarie Oosthuizen is the Family Physician and team leader of the District Clinical Specialist Team in Tshwane District Health Services. She has a joint appointment with the University of Pretoria. She has recently completed her Ph.D. dissertation in showing the effectiveness of a quality improvement package (the ‘CLEVER package’) to turn around dysfunctional labour wards in district health facilities. This made the time of delivery/birth much safer for both mothers and babies and lead to a more positive childbirth experience. The next step is to formalize this intervention into a clinical package which can be rolled out to other health districts in the country in order to achieve the same positive effect in other settings.
