Enhancing Training During Public Health Emergencies: An Inclusive Just-in-Time Training Approach


This white paper profiles the conceptual constructs of Inclusive JITT (Just-in-Time Training) and its potential application in the Public Health Investigation and Point of Dispensing settings. By the use of case studies, the paper describes the Inclusive JITT approach and how it effectively merges the following educational principles in public health emergency operations, which include: learning dimensions (i.e., knowing, doing, feeling);  learning styles (i.e., visual, auditory, experiential); and cultural context (i.e., individual, group, organization). This paper is a prelude to the Advanced Practice Centers release of Inclusive JITT toolkits for the training of surge responders which will occur in September 2010.

5 Stars of 5 - Extremely Useful
I-JITT white paper
By Martha Salyers

As a regional Public Health preparedness practitioner, I engage in a lot of trainings as instructor or participant, including just-in-time training.  Finally, in this white paper, I have found a cogent, rigorous, well-presented examination of what just-in-time training is and what it should be.

This white paper brings together adult learning principles and the training we must do for a well-prepared response cadre in a clear, practical format with useful examples.  It gives an excellent introduction to and framework for the Multnomah APC's inclusive JITT tools -- also found in the APC Toolkit.

 Highly recommended.
