Table 1 Combinations of task measurement variables used to identify tasks that need attention

From: Identifying gaps in the practices of rural health extension workers in Ethiopia: a task analysis study

Task combinations Implications
High criticality + infrequently performed Infrequency may be due to naturally rare occurrence or lack of training or infrastructure (e.g., not done in that setting). Depending on the reason for infrequency, tasks may be considered for development or revision of pre-service education (PSE) curricula or for in-service trainings for working HEWs.
High criticality + not able to perform safely Provide in-service training, mentorship, and supervision for working HEWs and reconsider pre-service education.
High criticality + never trained Tasks within the HEW scope of practice should be considered during development or revision of pre-service education curricula. Adding targeted in-service trainings provides the skills for working HEWs.
High criticality + not learned during pre-service education Tasks need consideration during development or revision for HEW pre-service education curricula.
