Health Management, Ethics and Research Module: 13. Writing Your Community Profile Report and Moving on to Small-Scale Research
Study Session 13 Writing Your Community Profile Report and Moving on to Small-Scale Research
In Study Sessions 10 to 12 you have been learning about the principles and guidelines for conducting health research, and the specific example of conducting a community survey using quantitative and qualitative survey techniques in your kebele. In this study session, you will learn how to make use of your community survey data.
First, we show you how to develop your community profile by writing the report of the survey data that you and your volunteers have collected from all the households in your community. Then you will learn how to use your community profile report to identify and implement small-scale research projects to suggest solutions for the health problems in your community. But how do you decide which topics to prioritise for further research and who should participate with you in making this decision? What should your research objectives be and what other sources of information should you consult? This study session will help you to make these choices.
