Usefulness of the Audience Response System in training lay health advisors for chronic disease prevention

Karen Yeary

Abstract


Lay health promoters (LHPs) have been successful in preventing disease. Given the complexity of health interventions, a crucial component that is necessary for LHPs’ success is the training they receive. Engaging methods have the potential to increase LHPs’ learning and efficacy to implement health interventions. The Audience Response System (ARS) has successfully facilitated interactive learning in several settings, but has not been used to train LHPs. This paper describes how the ARS was used in LHP training to implement a complex behavioral intervention, reports the training results, and serves as a model for others who work with LHPs.
