Assessing Impact of Modular Induction Training (MIT) on Knowledge regarding Service Delivery Packages among Community Health Officers (CHOs) in a State of North India: By using Pre and Post-Test Model of Learning
Abstract: Introduction: According to World Health Organization (WHO), Universal Health Coverage (UHC) is to enable all people and communities to use promotive, preventive, curative, rehabilitative and palliative health care services they need, of sufficient quality to be effective, while also ensuring that the use of these services does not expose the user to financial hardship. It incorporates equity in access, quality and financial risk protection. In order to facilitate UHC, Indian government has launched an ambitious health care scheme called "Ayushman Bharat." Material and methods: A total of 370CHOs (divided into twelve batches) attended the training and were enrolled for the study. In order to assess the knowledge, a questionnaire containing total of 35 questions was given to the trainees at the beginning and at the end of the training. Mean and Standard Deviation (SD) was calculated for quantitative data and proportions (percentage) for categorical data. Paired-t-test was used to assess the effect of training based on pre test and post test score. Results: A total of 370 candidates participated in the study. The mean score was 21.5 and 29.9 in pre-and post-test respectively. Mean pre and post test score showed improvement from 21.5 to 29.9. The improvement in the overall mean score was found to be statistically significant (p value=.000). Conclusion: The overall performance was improved after getting the training. Mean pre and post test score showed improvement from 12.5 to 29.9. The improvement in the overall mean score was found to be statistically significant which was a result of the MIT imparted to the study participants in the RHFWTC Kangra at Chheb.
