oa Central African Journal of Medicine - An activity sampling study of primary care staff of two Harare polyclinics

Volume 32, Issue 5
  • ISSN : 0008-9176



As part of an exercise in which clinic operations were examined, an activity sampling study was carried out at the primary care units of two polyclinics. The study found that at the clinic where Medical Assistants were engaged more in consulting patients, the State Registered Nurses and Sister-in-Charge had more time to supervise and administer staff, and screen patients. It is suggested that increasing the delegation of duties to the Medical Assistants can improve clinic operations.
