Description:

The Quality Assurance Project investigated how job aids could increase compliance with guidelines for the Integrated Management of Childhood Illness (IMCI) in cooperation with the Zambia Central Board of Health beginning in 1999. One of the first countries to introduce IMCI, Zambia had a large number of IMCI-trained providers, and several IMCI job aids were already in use: a chartbook, recording form, poster, and mother card. The study proceeded in three stages: an initial assessment of job aid usage in 1999, the design and introduction of a new IMCI job aid (called “new outpatient department book” or “NOPD book”) that also served as the patient record, and a second assessment of job aid usage in 2000 after introduction of the NOPD book.
