Title: Competency-based education in Africa: Understanding the basic principles

Join us for AFREhealth Webinar hosted by the Competence Based Education Technical Working Group

For the training of health workers, competence entails the habitual and judicious use of communication, knowledge, technical skills, clinical reasoning, emotions, values, and
reflection in daily practice for the benefit of the individual and the community being served. This has become the bedrock of the training of health workers and is reflected in
the shift in training paradigm from traditional methods. This webinar will discuss the basic principles of Competency-based education from the global and African perspectives.
