The following questions provide a guide for field-testing our videos at your home location.
Type of health worker:
Number of participants:
Years in practice or level of training:
Level of interest (high, medium, low):
Content of medical information:
- Do frontline providers find the topic useful?
- Do the videos accurately follow international standards of care? Does the information feel practical?
- Does the information flow well and build understanding?
- Did we gauge the level of knowledge accurately for frontline health workers: not too basic, yet not too advanced?
- Was there any important information missing?
- Are there any other video topics within newborn and childbirth care that would be helpful for training?
Video production values:
- Are images clear (not dimly lit, out of focus, poorly conceived)?
- Are the close-ups helpful?
- Are all necessary steps captured?
- How was the length? Too long, too short?
- How was the pace? Too fast? Too slow?
- Do the images do most of the teaching work?
- Is there anything confusing? Disturbing? Wrong? Not believable? Out of date?
- Are they easy to view and comprehensible on the small screen of a mobile device (if available)?
- Is the narration clear?
- Does the voice-over narration complement, but not distract from the visual information?
- Are illustrations and animation used effectively to add to understanding and help to show anatomy or procedures that would otherwise remain invisible?
- Were the videos filmed in a context that feels authentic to providers in low-resource settings?
- What do they feel about having people from other regions in the world; “that don’t look like themselves,” represented in the videos?
- Can they identify with the providers and patients appearing in the videos?
