community health 11

For this Discussion, consider your own community or a community you are familiar with. Referencing this week’s readings, identify the different methods of qualitative data collection that can be used in a community health needs assessment. Consider the importance of understanding your selected community’s health issues in order to determine which qualitative data collection methods are most relevant. Select a qualitative data collection method to use for collecting information on these health issues in your selected community.

By Day 3

Post a description of the qualitative method of data collection you selected. Explain why it would be the best for obtaining the information you need. Also, explain the role of trust between a health educator and the community members, and how that relationship might affect the type of qualitative data that can be collected.
