SMART Survey Manager Training
SMART (Standardized Monitoring and Assessment of Relief and Transitions) is increasingly used by various organizations as the standard survey method for nutrition and mortality surveys. In order to provide key-staff members with the most up-to-date knowledge and understanding of the methodology, the SMART Team delivers regional and national SMART Methodology trainings.
An inter-agency SMART Survey Manager training will be organized by the SMART Team at Action Against Hunger-Canada from July 18-26, 2017 in Entebbe, Uganda with breaks on 22nd and 23rd.The conference facility location will be communicated later. This training is intended for staff or persons involved in nutrition and mortality surveys in their agencies. Persons who will benefit most from this workshop are:
1. Persons from organizations/institutions directly responsible for the planning, supervision and/or data analysis of nutritional surveys.
2. Persons from organizations/institutions with experience in conducting nutritional surveys, but who need to improve their capacity using the SMART Methodology.
3. Persons with a basic understanding of malnutrition and statistical principles.
In this SMART Survey Manager Training, you will gain knowledge in how to define survey objectives, determine sample size & sampling strategy, recruit and train survey teams, supervise field teams, assess data quality, interpret results, and, finally, formulate recommendations and policy measures.
