Guidelines for Conducting Post-Training Supportive Supervision Visits to PPFP/PPIUCD Facilities

Post-training supportive supervision (SS) visits to the facilities are essential to help providers and facilities to initiate and scale up PPFP/PPIUCD services at their health centers/hospitals, translate updated competencies into action in providing services to clients and ensure the quality of PPFP/PPIUCD services as per standards (checklists).

The purpose of the guidelines for supportive supervision is an effort to maximize the outcome of the SS visits by:

  • Listing major steps of implementing supportive supervision visits for PPFP/PPIUCD services.
  • Reminding the key tools that can be used for effective supportive supervision.

These guidelines have been compiled in order to help Program and Clinical staff in planning and implementing supportive supervision. These guidelines will also help India Country Office (ICO) team to provide uniform standardized guidance and support to state teams. (excerpt)
