Follow-up and Adverse Events Management Training

Follow-up and Adverse Events Management Training is a critical component of the MMC courses offered because of its technical support content. The course seeks to capacitate medical doctors, nurses and clinical associates to provide follow-up care to patients and manage all types of adverse events (AEs) and complications that may arise post-operatively.

This training is also useful for practitioners who may be involved in traditional circumcision. It will furthermore be of benefit to nurses who work in facilities and provide follow-up care to MMC clients in their facilities which ordinarily do not provide MMC services. The course entails a theoretical session, which covers routine follow-up, and all types of adverse events management.
