File Type: PDF | File Size: 771.06 KB

This paper reviews literature that summarizes the state of quantitative and qualitative research on different health care provider job aids formats and the impact of these job aids on provider performance. It was found that job aids address some of the causes of the provider noncompliance such as provider forgetfulness, lack of time, and certain organizational barriers. Health planners and managers working in the developing countries have indicated that manual job aids are ideal for preventive health tasks, inexpensive to produce, and often reduce or replace the time and expense needed for conducting off-site training (2000, 24 pages).
