Practical Approach to Care Kit (PACK)

We have just concluded such ‘re-contextualisation’, we called it localisation, of an integrated, comprehensive, evidence based guide for use by all cadres of clinicians in Primary Health Care in Nigeria. The guide is called PACK (Practical Approach to Care Kit) originally developed by the knowledge Translation Unit of the Lung Institute, University of Cape Town in collaboration with BMJ. We convened a multidisciplinary team that worked over six months to contextualise/localise it for Nigeria. We are starting the Master Trainers training phase of the Pilot of PACK Nigeria Adult guide in three states in Nigeria from February 7th, 2017 in Abuja.
