A literature review of Training Needs Assessment (TRNA) methodology
The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) conducted a literature review to guide its proposal of a methodology for assessing training needs in the European Union (EU) Member States and European Economic Area (EEA) countries.
The scope of the ECDC Training Needs Assessment (TRNA) largely focuses on training needs, and countries’ capacities to train in the domain of communicable disease prevention and control, using a ‘harmonised assessment approach’. The goal is also to provide some insight into the enumeration and characterisation of the epidemiological workforce in the countries. The TRNA is intended to serve as a gap analysis, in order to inform decision making in the area of public health training at ECDC.
