The How-To Guide: Adaptation of the Training Resource Package for Family Planning to Improve Pre-Service Education

The “How-To Guide” provides guidance on adaptation of the Training Resource Package (TRP) and other evidence-based tools to design family planning (FP) training for pre-service education, including adolescent and youth sexual and reproductive health (AYSRH) curricula. This guide is meant to be used with illustrative FP and AYSRH training modules for pre-service education (described below). This guide aims to benefit those tasked with developing and designing pre-service education for nurses and midwives in ways that include:

  • Elaborating the process that can be used at country level to adapt the TRP for pre-service education and update FP curricula for nursing and midwifery.
  • Providing standardized, mandatory, basic minimum core curriculum competencies for effective, evidence-based family planning/reproductive health and AYSRH service provision.
  • Providing guidance on competency-based education to optimize learning and prepare nurses and midwives for desired, observable, and measurable performance that they must attain to be deemed competent.
