Training Mission: What should I know and why?
SAMU Training aims to impact our operations in projects with components of HIV and/or TB, by creating professional training programmes and products emphasising the evidence-based approach to care and management.
The rapid advancement of technology and access to the internet has seen new methods of knowledge transfer, from published articles, open-source e-learning, YouTube video tutorials to live streaming of conferences. Although technology has opened access to, and decreased the cost of knowledge acquisition, it has also opened the floodgates of raw data and information, with added concerns of reliability and mis-information.
The challenge is to harness the benefits of this new world ie. cost, speed and accessibility and yet also, while also providing an experience which adds synthesis and meaning to the learner.
All training activities will be informed by current field realities but will maintain a forward outlook for new challenges on the horizon.
