Safeprim study materials: Training primary healthcare workers on the SD Biosensor STANDARD G6PD screening test

The Safeprim study evaluated the operational aspects of the SD Biosensor STANDARD™ G6PD screening test performed in real-life settings of two municipalities in the Brazilian Amazon. In order to provide suitable training for health care professionals with different backgrounds at the primary level of care, job aids were created based on materials available within the G6PD Operational Research Community of Practice hosted by PATH. This way, the essential information on test procedure, treatment choice, and pharmacovigilance of hemolysis could be used in the field after a 4-hour training session.

A wall poster (29.7x42 cm), folder (21x29.7 cm), and slide set were used during the trainings, while patient cards (8x20 cm malaria card) containing G6PD and malaria data were provided after screening: a green-colored card for normal G6PD status and red-colored card for G6PD deficient. Such cards could be referenced in future malaria episodes.
