Clinical instruction is one of the strategy in improving clinical skills among Nurses and Midwives. This helps in improving learning to pre service nurses and midwives once they visit hospitals for practical, on the other hands it helps in improving skills of inservice nurses and midwives particularly who have skills gap that need to be perfected. This enables Nurses and Midwives become competent and therefore able to make rational clinical judgment in the provision of quality care with an effect to improve, maintain and recover health.
To improve skills of nurses and midwives, Ministry of Health, Community Development, Gender, Elderly and Children (MoHCDGEC) through the Division of Nursing and Midwifery Services developed Clinical Instructors program by developing guidelines and training package to facilitate formal clinical instruction. Yet the Ministry in collaboration with partners trained clinical instructors to facilitate clinical teaching in skills laboratories and health facilities.
Clinical Instructors’ supportive follow up guidelines will help in making follow up of trained clinical instructors to ensure standards of clinical teaching. Further, it will provide opportunities in identifying gaps and set mechanisms to bridge them through developing and implementing action plan. The guideline has two main sections, the first section introduces the reader on how to conduct follow up to Clinical Instructors and the second section presents the tools for use in making follow up toClinical Instructors.
