Applying KM Techniques to Promote Learning: The Uganda National Quality Improvement Conference (KM Case Study)
The Ministry of Health of Uganda held its first ever National Quality Improvement (QI) Conference in February 2012. The event, funded by USAID and other donors, brought together stakeholders from over the country and featured work supported by 17 different implementing partners. A key challenge in organizing the conference was to ensure that the design of the event emphasized peer-to-peer learning. The conference organizing committee structured the conference to include plenty of interactive sessions, which opened avenues for participants to learn from each other. Purposefully using interactive formats enriched the event and built capacity among organizing committee members to design similar conferences in the future.
