Note On Research Design For The Study Of Community Participation In Health Care Programmes
Susan B Rifkin
July-September 1986, 11(3):173-183
After describing types of research designs for the study of community participation in health care programmes, this paper examines one methodology, the quantitative methodology, the quantitative methodology, in detail. It presents some of the major attractions and limitations of this approach. The attractions include the need for evaluation of success and failure and of cost effectiveness of programmes. The limitations include the inability of the approach to deal with definitions and interventions that cannot be quantitified and the difficulty of identifying casual relationship between interventions and outcomes. These characteristics are illustrated by a case by a medical school in Asia. Research design, research developments and research outcomes are described and analysed. The paper concludes that an alternative analysis which examines the linkages between participation and health improvements would be more useful as it would allow the political, social and economic dimensions of community participation to be examined.

Experience of measuring height and mid upper arm circumference was frustrating because of low level of agreements of 21.1% and 44.9% respectively. The level of agreement and performance of workers could be enhanced by using colour coded simple instruments such as colored weight charts, leanness boards, tricolor tape and height stick. Nutritional grading by use of growth charts, leanness boards and tricolour tape matched well with actual measurements. Weighing and use of growth chart appeared to be reliable and simple indicator in the hands of primary health care workers in field situations.
