During the last years, Uzbekistan has been experiencing a Health Sector Reform targeted at improving the quality and effectiveness of primary health care services. Training GP trainers in Uzbekistan is a key issue in solving a number of tasks determined in the health system reform program.
Since 1998, 56 trainers and 130 SVP GPs have been trained under 10-month program within the framework of Project "Health" implementation activities and with support of the "Know How" GB Fund.
The purpose of the present article is to cover the issue of training effectiveness as being dependent on the level of the training material acquisition control.
Within the last 3 years, analysed were the trainees knowledge and practical skills evaluation results submitted in a form of the baseline, formative, and summative assessment done through MCQ, MEQ, OSCE, and oral log book.
The final score of a trainee determined with regard for the baseline score is a combination of formative assessment scores, final test scores, skills, and examination results. The success index is calculated through dividing the final knowledge (skills) level by the baseline.
The results of the analysis carried out show that the average level of final knowledge gained at the cycles is 0,5-0,8 - theoretical, and 0,6-0,9 - practical. The highest level of final knowledge (0,75) is observed in the individuals with a wide experience in the field, while the lowest indicator (0,6) is observed among beginners. So, the success index is 2 or a little higher, which confirms effectiveness of the cycles arranged.
In conclusion it can be stated that the trainers knowledge control system that we are implementing fosters improvement of the training process. The trainees knowledge assessment should be obligatory and complex. It should be noted that not only direct links are necessary in the process of training. Feedback is also important, for, it enables one to determine the degree to which the training goals have been achieved. It is necessary to study the training effectiveness, as it helps us to reveal drawbacks in the training process arrangement.
