Rapid Task Analysis: A Streamlined Approach for Matching Provider Competencies with Local Health Needs
April 26, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am EDT
the United States for International Development (USAID) and Human Resources for Health in 2030 (HRH2030)
10:00 AM – 11:00 AM EDT
To best serve the health needs of communities, managers should align the maternal and child health, family planning, HIV/AIDS, and other primary healthcare competencies of providers with the needs and demands of the populations served. Alignment of competencies and skills ensures that health workers are prepared to work with clients on specific issues or topics of need, such as counseling for informed and voluntary use of family planning or HIV prevention. HRH2030 has simplified an existing task analysis approach to create a “rapid” task analysis method. By applying this method, health facility managers can identify a core set of specific health tasks that health workers must perform on a routine basis to match local health needs and align education, human resources management, and other strategies to address competency gaps.
This webinar will provide an overview of the rapid task analysis method. Presenters will share successes and challenges from HRH2030’s experiences conducting these analyses in Madagascar and Cameroon.
