Monitoring and evaluation


The main objective of the RHTU M&E framework is to follow the RHTU, its courses and pilot sites in order to identify what is working well and support those successes, but also identify challenges and deficiencies and endeavour to improve on them.

The RHTU is working with the WHO Collaborative Centre at the University of Technology (UTS) in Sydney to establish an appropriate and responsive M&E framework and risk matrix. The aim is to build a creative, rigorous, qualitative and quantitative framework which addresses both process issues and impact of the activities and outputs of the RHTU.

The RHTU worked closely with the WHO Collaborating Centre for Nursing, Midwifery and Health Development at the University of Technology (WHO CC UTS) in Sydney to establish an appropriate and responsive monitoring and evaluation framework and risk matrix. The aim is to build a creative, rigorous, qualitative and quantitative flexible framework which addresses both process issues and impact of the activities and outputs of the RHTU.

The WHO CC UTS works closely with the RHTU team to develop relevant M&E tools and materials to gather a wide range of qualitative and quantitative information. This process involves developing databases, conducting workshops, focus groups, interviews, course evaluations, ethics approvals, and publications.

Interviews and consultation with RHTU, partners, provincial stakeholders and course participants have been conducted across PNG resulting in input from 300 interviews. These interviews were analysed to identify successes and challenges and reported to the public private partnership. The Knowledge, Attitude and Practice of EOC and EmOC Participants and Observers Report for example showed there is a very positive perception of the course and its impact. Please see reports for further details.
