Neurosurgical Outcomes at Mulago and Mbarara Hospitals, Implications for Task Shifting

mbarara-OR-2In this research project, we aim to assess the neurosurgical outcomes at Mulago and Mbarara hospitals, and compare the difference in outcomes in the procedures performed by different care providers (Neurosurgeons vs General sugeons vs Medical officers) in Mulago and Mbarara hospitals. We hypothesize that for simple procedures outcomes are the same across providers with different level of training and there is a possibility of task shifting simple neurosurgical procedures.
