This study sought to develop mentoring and precepting skills of Tanzanian nurses and midwives working in government and faith-based facilities in northern Tanzania. The goal was to develop mentoring and precepting skills in these cadres to improve worker retention and quality of care. We built a comprehensive training program and completed a follow up evaluation of how the materials were used by the funding partner to sustain the program post-development.
