IPC Roadmap Development and IPC Roadmap Implementation

  • Scope: NAP Countries
  • Focus: NTP
  • Objectives:
    • Describe the hierarchy of IPC controls and their respective importance
    • Describe the components of an IPC roadmap and essential details for inclusion and its use as an implementation tool and measurement tool
    • Share country experience on measuring IPC interventions at different levels
  • Expected Outputs/Outcomes: After attending the webinar, participants will be able to
    • Understand the rationale behind IPC roadmaps and the necessary components for creating a strong and operational roadmap
      • Which of the following are ESSENTIAL components in an IPC roadmap:
        • Data source
        • Responsible parties for collection and analysis
        • Timeline for implementation
        • All of the above
      • Understand the specific, operationalized measurements of IPC interventions and hear experiences from country teams on how they measure IPC interventions at national and sub-national levels.
        • True or false, all countries can measure every IPC intervention through the same set of indicators?
          • False I would say (i.e. need local context)
        • Detailed Outline:
          • Intro/Measuring IPC Implementation/Purpose:
            • To measure progress toward NAP Milestones 2.2.1 and 2.2.3 in the 10 NAP priority countries
            • To discuss the use of IPC roadmaps for institutionalizing data collection and use
            • To document progress toward NAP milestones in a standardized and comparable manner
          • Developing an Implementation Roadmap
            • Core components:
              • New or Existing: is the indicator already in use?
              • Data Source: what data systems are used to collect data for this indicator?
              • Responsible Parties: who (at each level) is responsible for data collection, aggregation, analysis and presentation?
              • Frequency: How frequently is this indicator reported?
              • Timeline: for new indicators, when will the indicator be in use and reported?
            • Levels of Implementation:
              • Most indicators are facility level indicators (with aggregation to various higher levels for reporting purposes)
              • National level indicators could include the following
              • Incidence of TB infection among health care workers
              • National TB infection control guideline scorecard
            • Operationalizing the Roadmap
              • Assess current indicators in the country
              • Which of the universal indicators are currently in place?
              • For new indicators, follow the “essential elements” to define a plan for implementing
              • Define a baseline for new indicators
              • Use the full set of universal indicators to report progress toward NAP milestones in a standardized, comparable manner
            • Country Example: South Africa
            • Country Example: Ukraine (or another country based on suggestions)
            • Questions
            • Conclusion
