Training of health professional has evidently impacted positively on
the skills and knowledge of health professional. One key area of improving
professional’s knowledge and patient’s outcome has been through continuing
training. The study conducted at Holy Family Hospital, was to assess the
impact of training on the performance of healthcare professionals. Specifically
it sought to assess the different kinds of training the hospital and other
stakeholders organize for the health professionals, to determine whether the
training given improve the knowledge and skills of the professionals. A
survey design was conducted for a target population of about three hundred
and fifty staff (350). About one hundred and fifty (150) of this population was
sampled and interviewed through convenience sampling technique. The study
found that majority of the staff has attended training within the past one year
prior to this research. Moreover, it was no doubt that clinical care was the
main focus on the type of training the facility organized for its staff members.
The study concludes that training of health staff has improved the knowledge
and skills of the staff interviewed and this may be as a result of the mode of
delivery during training which focus on patient centeredness. Further
conclusion can be drawn that the training has resulted in change of ideas and
with this; improvement in clinical care specialty and reduction in maternal
mortality are paramount. In making recommendation for future policy
direction, the study suggested that staff should cooperate with management
and consider in-service training as a package for higher performance. Again
budget allocation for in-service training should be effectively apportioned
irrespective of financial constraints.
