Digital Tools to Revolutionize Health Worker Capacity-Building: The Northern Ghana Nutrition Experience
Health workers (HW) are an essential point of care within the health system, yet they often receive little guidance on how to improve their service delivery. Supportive supervision (SS) allows the supervisor and HW to work together to identify shortcomings and improve healthcare delivery quality. In Ghana, current supervision practices for the Ministry of Health rely on unwieldy paper checklists through which data is captured but never used for feedback or management. Under the USAID-funded Resiliency in Northern Ghana (RING) project, JSI is using a mobile tool to streamline nutrition supervision. In this session, you will learn about the successes and challenges of developing and implementing a mobile supportive supervision tool, as well as the potential for digital tools to revolutionize HW capacity-building.
