Kosovo - Signing ceremony of the “Cooperation Agreement” between General Hospital of Gjilan and General Hospital of Murska Sobota
Following the elaboration of the situation analysis, which produced results that provide recommendations to policy-makers on how to reinforce the management structures as well as to initiate implementation of hospital based quality management systems that will improve service provision, the process of drafting the Strategic Plan 2017-2021 of the General Hospital of Gjilan brought to the fore the need for the staff of the respective hospital to be part of a well-designed continuing professional development plan which will upgrade their knowledge in terms of management and clinical skills and will deliver benefits to the individuals, their profession and the overall public.
Taking into consideration that trainings are an important component of the project KSV/017, especially in enhancing the understanding of the healthcare reform and capacity building for the implementation of specific components of the reform, a delegation from Kosovo comprised of representatives of Ministry of Health, KHUCS, General Hospital of Gjilan and project KSV/017, held official meetings with representatives of General Hospital of Murska Sobota, in order to discuss the modalities between the hospitals and project KSV/017.
Therefore, on July 12, 2017 the General Hospital of Gjilan signed the “Cooperation Agreement” with the General Hospital of Murska Sobota. The cooperation agreement, which will serve as a platform for sharing best practices between the hospitals, focuses on enabling partner hospitals to benefit and grow through exchanging knowledge and offer an incentive to healthcare providers from the Gjilan hospital to expand the horizons of their respective specialties.
