Innovative data tools: a suite for managing peer outreach to key affected populations in Viet Nam
Jacka, David; Boisen, Neil; Van Hai, Nguyen; Trinh, Nguyen Kieu; Nga, Nguyen Thien; Neukom, Josselyn ( 2012-07-01 )

The paper tools used to monitor outreach work in all major cities in Viet Nam had substantial writing requirements for each contact with difficulty maintaining confidentiality.This paper describes the development of a Unique Identifier Code (UIC), a field data collection notebook (databook) and a computer data entry system in Viet Nam. The databook can document 40 individual clients and has space for commodity distribution, group contacts and needles/syringe collection for each month.Field implementation trials of the UIC and databook have been undertaken by more than 160 peer outreach workers to document their work with people who inject drugs (PWID) and sex workers (SW). Following an expanded trial in Hai Phong province, there have been requests for national circulation of the databook to be used by peer educators documenting outreach to PWID, SW and men who have sex with men. The standardized UIC and databook, in a variety of locally adapted formats, have now been introduced in more than 40 of the 63 provinces in Viet Nam.This development in Viet Nam is, to our knowledge, the first example of the combination of a confidential UIC and an innovative, simple pocket-sized paper instrument with associated customized data-entry software for documenting outreach.

Innovative health education project in Al-Qassim region, Saudi Arabia
Abdel Gadir, Muzamil H. ( 1995 )

A pilot project was conducted with the aim of training and human resources development in health education, enhancing health education research, and establishing a health promotion and education centre in Al-Qassim region, Saudi Arabia. Health education programmes of three months for males [n = 14] and two to three weeks for females [n = 253] were offered. The work activities of such trained personnel were monitored and evaluated. It was concluded that through these programmes the targeted population could be trained to a satisfactory extent. Second, they would probably be able to convey basic health education concepts to the population at large, especially primary health care centre visitors

Innovative learning approaches in an established medical school: the experience at JUST in Jordan
Beni Hani, I.; Al Saudi, K.; Al Kafagel, A. ( 2003 )

The Faculty of Medicine at Jordan University of Science and Technology was established in 1986. Innovative changes were introduced to the traditional subject-based, hospital-oriented curriculum in 1999, the objectives of which were to integrate student learning, emphasize student-centred learning, develop training in a community setting, and introduce elective learning packages. To evaluate the integrated learning in the new curriculum, we assessed the validity and reliability of students' scores. The scores for the integrated 'modules' were compared with those in general subjects studied in the traditional way. Our study showed that results of tests taken on the new 'modules' are both valid and reliable measures of students' performance

Innovative Methods of Male Circumcision for HIV Prevention-Getting the Right Evidence
Hargreave, Timothy; Farley, Tim; Samuelson, Julia; Ridzon, Renee ( 2016-06-01 )

World Health Organization recommends that countries with hyperendemic and generalized HIV epidemics implement voluntary medical male circumcision programs for HIV prevention. Innovative methods of male circumcision including devices have the potential to simplify the procedure, reduce time and cost, increase client acceptability, enhance safety, and expand the numbers of providers who may perform circumcision. We describe work led by World Health Organization and supported by global partners to define a pathway for the evaluation of efficacy and safety of male circumcision devices, to set priority criteria, and to establish a process to guide the use of devices in publicly funded voluntary medical male circumcision programs for HIV prevention. A device classification scheme, an expert Technical Advisory Group on Innovations in Male Circumcision, and a formal prequalification program have also guided considerations on safe use of devices. A rigorous approach was deemed appropriate given the intervention is for use among healthy men for public health purposes. The pathway and processes led to coordinated research, better standardization in research outcomes, and guidance that informed the research, introduction and implementation phases. The lessons learnt from this case study can inform evaluation and use of future public health innovations.

Innovative schools for health personnel : report on ten schools belonging to the Network of Community-Oriented Educational Institutions for Health Sciences / R. Richards & R. Fülöp in collaboration with J. Bannerman ... [et al.]
Richards, R; Fülöp, Tam'as; Bannerman, J; Greenholm, G; Guilbert, Jean-Jacques; Wunderlich, M; Network of Community-Oriented Educational Institutions for Health Sciences ( 1987 )

Reports the findings and observations of a study focused on ten medical schools that have undertaken community-oriented and problem-based education. The study, which included schools located in Australia, Cameroon, Canada, Israel, Mexico, Nepal, the Netherlands, the Philippines, and the United States of America, was designed to uncover differences in the ways these schools have evolved while also establishing standards for measuring and comparing the extent of their success in meeting stated objectives. Apart from recording the results of a major cross-institutional review of educational changes, the book also succeeds in identifying a number of fundamental questions, component methods for achieving objectives, and potential areas of impact where the success of these methods can be effectively measured

Innovative tracks at established institutions for the education of health personnel : an experimental approach to change relevant to health needs / Martin Kantrowitz ... [et al.]
Kantrowitz, Martin; Kaufman, Arthur; Mennin, Stewart; Fülöp, Tam'as; Guilbert, Jean-Jacques; Network of Community-Oriented Educational Institutions for Health Sciences; World Health Organization ( 1987 )

Provides a highly practical and instructive guide for educators seeking to reform programmes and methods of teaching at established medical schools. Focused on practical problems, the book describes an approach to change involving the establishment of an innovative curricular track as a curriculum distinct from, but running parallel with, the already existing curriculum. To facilitate understanding of how the strategy works in real situations, the book draws upon ideas, experiences, and discussions presented during a conference attended by educators at eight institutions that have used the track approach as an agent of change, some for as long as 15 years. Though the institutions, located in China, Mexico, the Philippines, Thailand, and the United States of America, represent widely divergent needs and circumstances, all have used the track approach to reform medical education in the direction of greater relevance to health needs or by using problem-based learning in the educational process. The core text of the book sets out detailed case studies for each of the eight institutions. Presented in a spirit of frank self-analysis, these studies document the range of different problems, constraints, successes, mistakes and surprises that characterized the evolution of innovative track programmes in real situations. The reliance on first-hand experiences, whether at the Shanghai Second Medical University or Harvard Medical School, further helps account for the sense of excitement and innovation present throughout the book
