A unique non-linear chw program framework for quality improvement
Supervision, Partners, Incentives, Choice, Education.
Utilizing the metaphor of Chinese cooking, the framework's goal is to find a balance among several key elements in order to make an ever-better final product. Through facilitated discussions, during which participants evaluate the relative strengths and weaknesses of available inputs and on-site realities, the framework can be used as a brainstorming and reflection exercise, or as an academic exercise to set a quality improvement or research agenda.
The presentation will describe PIH's experience in developing, piloting, and refining 5-SPICE for CHW program development and support.
