Describe which technique you would use to collect data (such as focus group, interview, et cetera), and explain why you selected it.


Recruiting and Sampling

Choose from “ONE” of the following scenarios that describe a health care or public health issue or problem:

Scenario A

The rise in obesity among low-income Latino preschoolers is a public health concern. The childcare environment is considered an influential arena in the early development of lifestyle habits that can potentially lead to childhood obesity. There is a need to explore the role and potential corrective influence of family childcare providers.

Scenario B

Weight loss is a much-desired goal, even in non-morbid patients with Type 2 Diabetes; however, non-morbid patients frequently encounter great difficulty in meeting the therapeutic weight loss goal set by their physicians. Bariatric surgery appears to be a viable alternative to medication for these patients. Before going to the expense of conducting a randomized clinical trial, it is important to investigate the opinion and preferences of non-morbid Type 2 Diabetes patients regarding the value of, and concerns about, bariatric surgery.

Scenario C

The management of diabetes is a central focus in some Native American tribal regions of the U.S. Continuous quality improvement is an important aspect of improving service delivery rates and clinical outcome measures. Because one of the well-recognized factors involved in a well-designed health care delivery system is the sense of ownership (over the diabetes management process), it is important to explore how this sense is understood and expressed in this population.
