Paediatric AIDS Treatment for Africa (PATA) sponsors two Expert Patients at our Wednesday and Thursday clinics at Groote Schuur Hospital. The term Expert Patient is not a new one. Since June 2007 PATA has been funding a pilot Expert Patient programme in 20 Southern African clinics. The aim is to facilitate task shifting within clinics to reduce the stress of the clinical team. This idea complements Kidzpositive’s entrepreneurial approach to improving quality of health care delivered in the Public Service.
