General orientation on APBHP.

Consensus was built and agreement on guidelines
was agreed. The agreement contained program
parameters and numerical cut-off points to be used
as indicators of problems.
 Minimum health data (morbidity/mortality) statistics,
program performances, socio-economic conditions,
situation of available facilities, client behavior, peace
and order conditions, geographic spread of
catchments, etc) were presented and used as
baseline for worksheets (prescribed matrices).
 It required consolidations of all prioritized activities,
physical, financial and other resources to achieve targets
and set goals/objectives.
 The plan was reviewed and approved in a collaborative
workshop meeting.
 During implementation, feedbacks from partner
stakeholders and modification of actions were closely
monitored to carry out the plans.
 Participative monitoring and evaluation of programs/
projects were imparted to among partner stakeholders.
 Sustainability was assured by building political
partnerships in the forms of agreement (e.g
memorandum of agreement, manifesto of support,
barangay resolutions and endorsement of various
developmental organizations).
A major challenge to prepare nursing student for
his/her future role as CHN.
 The key of successful transfer of KSJ to the
student depend on the teacher’s ability to
improve the student understanding of concepts
related to PHC.
 Since the design (APBHP) is more focus in the
management of DOH programs, it is imperative
that student must internalize the concept then
materialize it in actual setting.
