To enhance maternal, newborn, and child primary care services at facilities, the TSU has deployed Nurse Mentors (NMs), who
provide on-site mentoring and supportive supervision to staff nurses, ANMs, and pharmacists. NMs focus on improving service
provider clinical competencies, infection prevention, inventory control, the referral system, coordination between facilities
and front line workers, and documentation. NMs strengthen staff nurse and ANM’s birth attendance skills through teaching,
case reviews, case studies, demonstrations, and modelling bedside patient care in mini skill labs that the TSU established
in one CHC of each block of the HPDs.
