Field Training Guides for Data Collectors

JHSPH investigators often hire local people to collect data for their research. These individuals are "engaged" in human subjects research as they interact with participants and often are also obtaining informed consent.  Depending upon level of education, language, and web access, online training may not be appropriate as a training mechanism for data collectors. The Field Guides below provide the basic information data collectors require and are intended for in-person training.
