@beatrice and I have been working on a book chapter on CHW training and supervision, and I’m excited to share that it has just been published by Oxford University Press! This is chapter 5 in the book Training for Community Health: Bridging the global healthcare gap. It was lovely working with the colleagues who edited the book, and some of the other chapters look super interesting.
I’d say our chapter’s main contribution is the idea that ongoing face-to-face supervision is no less important a means of training than using digital tools to deliver training material. We made this argument by offering a detailed, human-centered view into what it takes to design systems that support good ongoing supervision. This book chapter also provided a chance to feature the Medic team’s work in partnership with the Ministry of Health in Nepal.
It was extremely challenging to find time to finish this chapter with the covid workload ongoing and I’m honestly kind of amazed that we finished it at all . Big congrats to @Beatrice for leading the way and really making this happen
