Joshi, M., P. Arnow, and S. Paige. 2005. Detailed Report of the Training of Trainers Component of the DTC-TOT Course, Kampala, Uganda, September 2004. Published for the U.S. Agency for International Development by the Rational Pharmaceutical Management Plus Program. Arlington, VA: Management Sciences for Health.
With support from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), the Rational Pharmaceutical Management Plus (RPM Plus) Program of Management Sciences for Health (MSH) developed a Training of Trainers (TOT) course to complement the existing Course on Drug and Therapeutics Committees (DTCs). The rationale for the TOT component is to build local, national, and regional capacities to organize local DTC training programs by enhancing the presentation and facilitation skills of course participants. It is expected that these skills will help maintain course quality and that their propagation, like the course content, will be a basis for sustained contact between generations of facilitators. The added TOT modules also contribute to USAID/RPM Plus’s recent effort to establish a Regional Pharmaceutical Management Technical Resource Collaboration.
This newly developed TOT component was implemented along with a regular DTC course in Kampala, Uganda, in September 2004. The content covered key philosophies and teaching techniques for adult learners. The report documents in detail the process that was used in conducting the different TOT sessions so that the course can be replicated.
