In the context of resource limitation, outbreaks, and pandemics (COVID-19), it is now crucial to provide countries with innovative approaches to continuously train immunization professionals at all levels of the health system. Indeed, it is largely acknowledged that delivering face-to-face training programs is very costly and time-consuming. The high-stakes environment in the healthcare industry pressure healthcare workers to deliver quality outcomes with little time for preparation.
A useful alternative to such traditional learning is competency-based learning. Competency-based learning is a framework for instructional design that focuses on the desired performance characteristics of specific healthcare positions.
