A NNEX 6.5 S AMPLE K EY I NFORMANT I NTERVIEW G UIDE Interviews with key informants can be used to collect additional information from stakeholders external to the educational institution. If external stakeholder support might be needed to define or implement best buys, it is recommended to involve these stakeholders in the assessment. The following types of individuals are considered to be key informants: Directors and local representatives of the Ministry of Health Directors and local representatives of the Ministry of Higher Education Presidents and representatives of the national professional associations and councils Health service managers, representing both public and private health services Providers of in-service training and continuous professional development programs. Adapting the Interview Guide When reviewing and adapting the sample key informant interview guide, it is recommended to focus the questions on key areas of concern for the academic program(s) to keep the interview as short as possible. This will simplify both its administration and analysis. The adapted interview guide should be pretested prior to its use with a larger group of participants. The interview guide should be adapted to reflect the thematic areas, attributes, and factors being assessed; the program(s) under assessment; the core facilities, infrastructure, materials, equipment, and competencies required for the program(s); and the terminology used by the educational institution. Assessment areas Adapt the interview guide to the thematic areas, attributes, and factors that key stakeholders agreed to assess. If they decided to omit one or more of the nine thematic areas from the assessment, remove those areas from the guide. If they decided to add or remove attributes or factors under a thematic area, revise the questions under that area to reflect the factors for which there is agreement (see Annex 1 for list of thematic areas, attributes, and factors).

Program requirements Adapt the interview guide to the core facilities, infrastructure, materials, equipment, and competencies required for the program(s). Review the sample lists provided in the guide and revise them to reflect the actual resources needed. Align competencies with those expected from the program(s). Terminology Review the interview guide and replace any questionable terms with those typically used in your context.
