Employing a simplified but reliable version of the discrete choice experiment methodology, the toolkit guides human resources managers through the survey process to rapidly assess health professional students’ and health workers’ motivational preferences to accept a position and continue working in underserved facilities. It allows for rapid data-gathering and analysis, and the results can be used to create evidence-based incentive packages.

The toolkit includes step-by-step instructions, sample formats, and examples that can easily be adapted to a specific country context, including:

  • Survey planning
  • Survey design
  • Survey instrument development using a specialized software program
  • Survey administration
  • Data analysis and interpretation
  • Presentation of results to stakeholders.
