 SBA Training Guidelines
 

 

v     Introduction:

 

With about 77,000 women dying every year during pregnancy and post partum period, maternal mortality in India continues to remain unacceptably high. To effectively reduce Maternal Mortality provision has to be made for providing basic and emergency obstetric care to every pregnant woman.

 

Reducing Maternal Mortality and providing Skilled Attendance at every Birth has been envisioned in Reproductive and Child Health Programme, under the umbrella of National Rural Health Mission (NRHM), which has been launched by the Government of India in April 2005, in order to improve the availability and access to quality reproductive health care services throughout the country.

 

To achieve the above goals, there is a commitment for operationalizing of all CHCs as First Referral Units for comprehensive obstetric care services and at least 50% of all PHCs to 24 X 7 centers to become proficient in providing basic RCH obstetric care services. To achieve this health workers at these facilities should be proficient in timely identification and management of basic complications during pregnancy and child birth i.e. they should be trained as Skilled birth Attendant.

 

A Skilled Birth Attendant (SBA) is defined as an accredited health professional-such as midwife, doctor or nurse-who has been educated and trained to achieve proficiency in the skills needed to manage normal (uncomplicated) pregnancies, childbirth and immediate postnatal period and in the identification, management and referral of complications in women and newborns.

 

GoI also has taken policy initiatives to empower the SNs/LHVs/ANM to make them competent for undertaking certain life saving measures. These measures are as follows:

         Permission to use Uterotonic drugs for prevention of PPH.

         Permission to use drugs in emergency situations prior to referral for stabilizing the patient.

         Permission to perform basic procedures at community level in emergency situations.

 

In view of this SBA training has been launched for SNs/LHVs/ANMs at District level, where intensive hands on training in mid-wifery skills will be provided to these health personnel. States are in process of gearing up their facilities for this training but there is a need to scale up this training to achieve our commitment of skilled attendance and by thus preventing womens dying due to the lack of the same.

 

Under NRHM, there is a commitment to establish Public Private Partnership to involve private providers in the government health programs. With this in view a guideline for accreditating private health facilities for providing SBA Training have been prepared, through which private providers will train health personnel as SBA, whose services can then be utilized at Government Health Facilities for delivering quality obstetric care services.

 

The guidelines have been prepared by FOGSI in collaboration with GoI and WHO-India. It is hoped that this guideline will be useful in accreditating private Health Facilities for conducting SBA Training which in turn will help widening the skill based services at primary and secondary health level. It is expected that these facilities will maintain the quality in training which will enable our health workers in acquiring the desired skills for quality obstetric care services.

 

 

v    Objectives:

These guidelines are developed with following objectives:

1.     Develop a comprehensive, credible and transparent system of accreditation, for organizing SBA training in the private sector.

2.     Accredit private maternity/nursing homes/hospitals including those run by the trusts, public sector undertaking, missionaries etc which will be recognized as centers providing high quality Skilled birth attendant (SBA) training to auxiliary nurse midwives (ANMs)/SNs.

 

v    Accreditation Process:

The term accreditation reflects the systematic assessment of infrastructure (includes manpower, equipments etc) required for conducting SBA Training. In simple terms, we can say that accreditation refers to a voluntary process wherein the requirement of SBA training in participating health facility is accessed against set standards.   

 

      Step 1: Establishing Committee for Accreditation (DAC):

         District Accreditation Committee to be established by the Chairperson of DHS at District Level.

         Committee to have following composition (including 1 women member):

      District CMO Convenor.

      1 FOGSI member Co Convenor.

      District RCH officer /District Program Manager (DPM) - Member Secretary*.

      Representatives from IMA/IAP/NNF.

      Any other Technical/Program Officer from the District Health Office can also be nominated by District CMO.

         In case Chairperson decides to utilize already established District QAC, then he should ensure that private service providers especially members of professional organization like FOGSI/IMA/IAP at the district level are nominated and given due representation.

         Nominated members from the professional organization will have tenure of 3 years.

         DAC will meet quarterly in a year to discuss the accreditation progress other than the site assessment visits. Meeting of the committee shall be called by the convenor and facilitated by co-convenor.

         Member Secretary will be the custodian of the records for the DAC meetings and shall be responsible for putting up files, notes etc. to the convenor /committee and convening the DAC meetings.

         CMO/ Member Secretary of DAC will be primarily responsible for executing the TORs in which FOGSI will facilitate timely accomplishment of the process.

 

 

 

      Step 2: Orientation of DAC members

         One day orientation of DAC members on the TORs of the committee and the process of Accreditation including the tools can be done at District/State level.

         TORs of the Committee are:

1)      Ensure that the accreditation scheme gets necessary publicity, to be taken up by the PHFs and to generate awareness among clients.

2)      Committee will be responsible for the whole process of accreditation which will include inviting letters of interest for accreditation, screening the same, undertaking site assessment, certification, monitoring, reviewing the progress of accreditation and undertake remedial measures. 

3)      Facilitate formalization of MOU between the DHS and PHF.

4)      Committee will have the power to revoke the accreditation of the PHF in case of non-compliance/ unethical practice etc.

5)      To provide budgetary estimates for the accreditation process to be reflected in respective district PIPs.

 

      Step 3: Publicizing the Scheme:

         DAC will take necessary steps for the adequate awareness generation of the scheme among the Private Health Facility.

         Information about the scheme can be communicated through mass media like newspaper, radio, TVs, poster etc.

         Appropriate information about the scheme including the service detail, minimum standards for getting accreditation etc. will be available at websites of national/ state health ministry and professional bodies like FOGSI/IMA/IAP etc.

         DAC will publish adequate number of brochure/forms which include information on the scheme, process, package, self evaluation checklist, liabilities of PHF/ DAC etc.

 

      Step 4: Pre- accreditation procedure

         PHFs who are interested in the scheme will obtain forms including the self evaluation checklist (in accordance with Annexure 1).

         PHFs will submit duly filled self evaluation checklist along with the application fee of Rs 1000/- at the office of District CMO.

         Office of District CMO will issue acknowledgment receipt on receiving the LOI.

         Member Secretary/DPM scrutinizes the application, lists the eligibility of PHFs.

         Quarterly meetings will be called by CMO and during these meetings; plan for the Site Assessment for Accreditation is developed according to the number of application.

         Whole process of accreditation including site assessment, certification and signing of MoU, release of funds has to completed by the DAC within 3 months of submission of LOI by the PHFs.

 

      Step 5: Site Assessment for Accreditation:

         Site Assessment has to be undertaken within 21 days of the Quarterly meeting.

         Site Assessment will be done by at least 2 members of DAC, comprising of 1 member from Government and 1 representative from professional bodies in the DAC.

         During site assessment of the PHFs self evaluation checklist submitted by the PHFs has to be verified. Authenticity especially in terms of manpower, service delivery protocols has to be judged.

         Site assessment team submits it report to District CMO within 7 days of site assessment, giving the detail that whether the accreditation to the PHF for conducting SBA training can be granted or not.

         Adequate funds have to be kept by the DHS, for DAC members to undertake the site assessment visits.
