The goal of “Promoting Respectful Maternity Care (RMC) at Birth: Orientation for Facility-Based Workshops” is to orient service providers on the RMC concept along with a set of evidence-based interventions to promote RMC. Objectives of the workshop as indicated in this slide deck are: Outline the current status of maternal and neonatal health in relation to respectful care. Discuss key RMC concepts, terminology, legal and rights-based approaches related to RMC and the RMC Resource Package. Demonstrate knowledge and use of Values Clarification and Attitude Transformation (VCAT) theory and practice. Discuss selected evidence-based strategies that reduce disrespect and abuse. Discuss participants’ role in promoting RMC. Develop action plans to support the implementation of RMC interventions at various levels of health (policy and program; regional, county, or subcounty; facility and community).
