Dimension 7: Health worker perception on training and supervision
REC as a learning tool
“REC is very important, every time you assess a child, some diagnoses and treatments will stay in your head. (…) It helps us to learn. If I am consulting a sick child [in a situation without REC], I will remember the signs: ‘I have already taken care of a child like this in REC it advised the following…’. It is a training (…), you’re learning while consulting, and even if REC is no longer in use, you [ex-REC users] would be able to treat children from 0 to 5 years more appropriately [due to this experience]” Birth attendant, female “I’m happy because it trains us (…) right now if I am in a situation without REC, REC will stay in my head. (…)We know [by heart] the different paths you can take when a child has a cough, we know what to do until the end. There are questions we ask that other health workers would not. Not only do we apply IMCI but it stays in our head. With REC we have become used to doing things well from the beginning until the end every time” RN, male
