The Philippines PROMPT Project

Most recently, the Philippine Representative Office has engaged in a CSR Program with Project HOPE and PROMPT (PRactical Obstetric Multi-Professional Training) Maternity Foundation, which aims to help reduce maternal mortality in the Philippines. The overall project goal is to reduce maternal mortality by training the labor and delivery units of selected pilot hospitals in managing obstetrics emergencies by using the safety tools and modules developed by the PROMPT team in Bristol, UK.

The PROMPT Train-the-Trainers Program was held last September 23-24, 2015 in Ascott Hotel, Bonifacio Global City, Taguig. Labor and Delivery teams from eight pilot hospitals, consisting of OB Consultants and Residents, OB Training Officers, Anaesthesiologists, and Delivery Room Nurses, attended the event. The participating healthcare professionals came from Philippine General Hospital, Quirino Memorial Medical Center, East Avenue Medical Center, Rizal Medical Center, Vicente Sotto Memorial Medical Center, University of Santo Tomas Hospital, Dr. Jose Reyes Memorial Medical Center, and St. Luke's Medical Center . Some examples of obstetrics emergencies are cases with eclampsia, vaginal breech, postpartum haemorrhage and shoulder dystocia.

The local trainers shall cascade the PROMPT course program to the entire maternity staff of their respective hospitals. The program implementation shall begin, after which, data will be collected and the outcomes will be monitored closely by Project HOPE and PROMPT with the help of the Philippine Obstetrical And Gynecological Society (POGS).

Greening Initiatives

Going green is not easy but small, simple things matter. From arranging for carpooling when the teams go out to minimize carbon footprint to using scratch papers for printing and doing other initiatives to make sure that energy and other resources are conserved.

  • Closely monitor the consumption of office supplies, cleaning materials, etc. Buy these in bulk to save on costs.
  • Go digital – send an electronic invite for meetings or set-up an online system for approvals to minimize the use of paper
  • If possible, print on both sides of the printer and choose the fast or ink save printing mode or setting.
  • Completely power down all equipment and appliances at night by pulling the plug of unused equipment before going out of the office.
  • Turn off the lights in rooms which are not being used. If possible, on a warm, sunny day, pull up a window shade and use natural light.
  • Use LED lamps which consumes less power but gives good lighting
  • Use refillable ink and toner cartridges
  • Drink your coffee, juice or any beverage in a glass or mug, which is washable and reusable.
