CHWs (49) Training of CHWs

11 June, 2019

(with thanks to Health Informatics Forum: )

Health Informatics Forum e-Seminar: Dr Niall Winters and Dr Judith McCool

In this webinar, recorded on 4 June 2019, HIFA CHW working group member Niall Winters (University of Oxford) discusses the use of mobile technologies can support the training and supervision of CHWs in LMICs, drawing on empirical work in Kenya and Uganda. He also examines on-going research into how the latest advances in artificial intelligence may be leveraged to support exploratory learning by CHWs during their day-to-day work. The work includes 'the ability to recognise naturalistic reactions in virtual reality spaces'.

This is followed by a presentation from Dr Judith McCool, New Zealand, on mHealth as it is evolving in Small Island Developing States (SIDS), the Pacific in particular.
