Setting Core Competencies of Health Workers Towards Quality Primary Care: Proceedings of a National Consultative Workshop
The National Academy of Science and Technology (NAST), in cooperation with the Philippine Primary Care Studies (PPCS), organized the Stakeholders’ Meeting on Training Objectives for Primary Care in the Philippines on February 1, 2018, at Hotel Jen, Pasay City. The stakeholder’s meeting arrived at a consensus on the objectives of primary care workshops, training the existing cadre of doctors, nurses, midwives, and BHWs in the country. Competencies built upon these training objectives will strengthen the capacity of health care workers to render patient-centered primary care services. The expected output was not intended to replace the objectives of existing professional training curricula. Instead, the consensus obtained through this meeting works to establish the framework from which future primary care training workshops can be built upon.
