This study aims at creating video-based tutorials for developing skills in performing cervical cancer screening using VIA for the Auxillary Nurse Midwives (ANMs), Accredited Social Health Activists (ASHAs) and Primary Health Workers (PHWs). Cervical cancer screening is mainly done by the following three methods: Visual inspection with acetic acid (VIA), Cervical Smear Cytology (PAP) and HPV DNA test. VIA is a low cost, low resource cervical cancer screening method and especially useful for low middle income countries (LMICs) like India.
We propose to develop video-based tutorials, such that the ANMs/ASHAs/PHWs could be trained in performing and interpreting VIA with the use of this tutorial. The ANMs/ASHAs/PHWs have important roles in delivering health in rural/ semi urban areas and they will be trained using this tutorial.
The video-based tutorials will be made according to the 'Spoken Tutorials' methodology, developed at IIT Bombay. Video-based Tutorials has given skills based training to over 2 lakh students in the past four years on IT based topics. The tutorials are made available online free of cost. They are designed to be used without the need of an expert being physically present.

cervical cancer screening and training for ANMs/ASHAs/PHWs To develop video-based tutorials to train ANMs/ASHAs/PHWs in conducting cervical cancer related health education, screening for cervical cancers using VIA, collection of PAP smears and HPV samples.
Other: cervical cancer screening
for 50 ANMs/ASHAs/PHWs/ in conducting cervical cancer related health education , screening for cervical cancers using VIA, collection of PAP smears and HPV samples.
- Improvement in the Post training knowledge about cancer [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
Questionnaire: that will compare pre-training knowledge with post training and assess the improvement in the Post training knowledge about various aspects of cervical cancer viz., causes, various cervical cancer screening techniques, steps required to perform VIA etc.
These will be measured with the help of test scores. Each question in the test will have marks assigned to it based on difficulty level. (Easy 1 mark, Intermediate 2 marks, Hard 3 marks, Very hard 4 marks). The ANMs will be assigned marks depending on the number of correct responses.
The ANMs will have to take the tests before the training, immediately after the training, and three months after the training is complete.
- Satisfaction to the video based tutorials [ Time Frame: 1 year ]
Questionnaire: that will assess the satisfaction level and feed back of the trainees with the course provided.
The satisfaction level with the mode of teaching will be done on a survey based on a likert scale.
- Clinical skills development [ Time Frame: 1 year ]Scores will be assigned and the ability to correctly identify a VIA positive lesion will be assessed.
