Ms. Burrows was furthermore engaged in a project that aims at improving patient safety in two wards at QECH with the view to roll out the project in hospitals across Malawi. Her engagement with the Pharmacy Department was enabled through the EU/GIZ “Strenghtening Specialised Medical Care in Malawi” (SSMCM) project.
