Dr Jalemba Aluvaala
Jalemba Aluvaala is a post-doctoral researcher with an interest in perinatal-neonatal clinical and health services research. After training in Paediatrics and Epidemiology, he completed a DPhil at the Nuffield Department of Medicine. He developed prognostic models using routine data to predict in-hospital mortality in the neonatal unit.
He leads the neonatal component of the Clinical Information Network (CIN-N) at the KEMRI-Wellcome Trust in Nairobi. The CIN is a collaboration with the Kenyan Ministry of Health, Kenya Paediatric association and county hospitals to support improvement in collection and analysis of hospital inpatient information to support audit, service evaluation, and quality improvement. He also holds a research track post as a Research Fellow/Lecturer in the Department of Paediatrics and Child Health, School of Medicine, University of Nairobi.
First do no harm: practitioners' ability to 'diagnose' system weaknesses and improve safety is a critical initial step in improving care quality.
