Evaluation of changes of clinical practice of those primary health care workers who completed Essential Training on the Integrated Management of Hypertension and Diabetes in 7 pilot regions.

- To understand how the training was able to influence changes in PHC clinical practice in pilots in order to plan further improvements/adjustments of training’s content and teaching approaches, but also to identify other factors that need to be strengthened at PHC level for better NCDs prevention, early detection, care and support.;

- The evaluation of the project is planned to be carried out using three data collection approaches. Changes in risk assessment and treatment practices and outcomes will be evaluated by collecting information from patient records. Organizational changes in clinics and changes in division of tasks will be assessed performing observations of patient pathways. Focus group interview will be carried out to assess professionals’ opinions on effects of training in changing the practice and related possibilities and challenges.
