If a pool of RH trainers exists:
- Involve RH trainers in the process of institutionalizing PAC training into the pre-service training system.
- Review the recommended sample training curricula and adapt to your country and/or health system. Incorporate the recommendations related to specific aspects of the sample curricula that need to be expanded or strengthened (e.g., counseling, pain management, post-procedure client monitoring). Include the research findings into the training curriculum. USAID is currently completing a standardized curriculum that you may find useful for your country’s program.
- Develop strategies for preparing or strengthening clinical training sites—for either centralized, whole-site, on-the-job, or individual learning approaches to training. Allow time for sites to consistently and confidently provide PAC services to the upgraded standard (e.g,. 3-6 months before using the site for clinical training).
- Conduct initial or refresher PAC training for trainers, tutors, preceptors, and supervisors who will be involved in on-going RH training and supportive supervision.
