Complementing Routine Data with Qualitative Data for Decision Making: Understanding the "Why" Behind Program Data

This training toolkit is meant to assist health professionals in using qualitative research skills to answer questions about their programs.

This training toolkit is meant to assist health professionals in using qualitative research skills to answer questions about their programs. The training, while not a comprehensive qualitative research methods course, covers qualitative research topics to help health care professionals and decision makers understand the best practices for collection, analysis, and use of qualitative data.

This workshop will help individuals know when they need to collect additional data, particularly qualitative data, and how to collect, analyze, and use those data for programmatic improvements.

The facilitator’s guidance and accompanying materials illustrate how best to use and interpret qualitative data to improve health service delivery. Adaptations and further development of select sections of the training materials by an M&E specialist is necessary to tailor the training to local contexts and needs prior to delivery of the workshop content.
