Applications are open for Breakthrough ACTION’s Supporting Provider Behavior Change Workshop. This virtual experiential learning workshop is an exciting opportunity for individuals to learn more about a new suite of tools for designing, implementing, and evaluating provider behavior change initiatives, and directly apply these same tools to their current work with facility-based healthcare providers through a guided process. This workshop is being offered as a free technical assistance opportunity.
By the end of the workshop, participants will have:
- Familiarized themselves with a new suite of tools that support provider behavior change initiatives
- Applied these tools to their work and developed an action plan for ongoing provider behavior change efforts
We invite teams of 3–5 individuals who are currently working together on a provider behavior change initiative with a specific organization (for example, government agency, public or private healthcare facility, local or international NGO) to submit an application to participate as a team in this experiential learning workshop. Teams selected to participate will be notified in April 2022.
This virtual workshop will take place in May/June 2022, with exact dates and format to be determined in collaboration with the selected teams. An essential output from the workshop will be the development of an action plan by each team.
