This project assesses the utility, design, and content of a recently developed Point of Dispensing (POD) Just in Time Training (JITT) Training Manual developed and written by the Principal Investigator. The JITT Training Manual provides instructions for using the JITT Checklist, guidance for delivering JITT training, and helpful reminders. Eleven public health professionals reviewed the JITT Training Manual and provided qualitative feedback through key informant interviews. Participants found the Training Manual useful, offered suggestions for the final design, and approved of the content. Participants felt that additional training on POD operations is beneficial for public health professionals tasked with working as a JITT instructor. The Training Manual should be produced in an easy to reference hard copy format and incorporated into POD training in Maine.
Note: The project includes the use of many acronyms, these acronyms are an integral part of public health emergency preparedness rhetoric and are a known and important vocabulary during a situation where the JITT Training Manual would be used. See: Appendix A - Acronyms
