About QUAL-WORKS

QUAL-WORKS offers a series of training workshops on qualitative research. We offer three types of workshops: scheduled workshops, individual mentored sessions, and customized workshops. Scheduled workshops are held twice a year during summer. Mentored sessions provide individual mentoring with a QUAL-WORKS expert on your own research project. Customized workshops can be developed to meet the training needs of your organization. Please see the workshop schedule below with links to fliers for more information on each type of workshop.

Our workshops are suitable for those involved in research or research management. They are valuable for anyone directly involved in conducting qualitative research or those who train research staff, evaluate research contracts, or manage research. Typical participants include public health professionals, university researchers, graduate students, research contractors, government agencies, and non-government organizations.

QUAL-WORKS was developed by Dr. Monique Hennink, Associate Professor of Global Health. She has authored five textbooks on qualitative research and has over 25 years of experience in the design, conduct, implementation, analysis, and publication of qualitative research. She conducts training workshops worldwide in both developed and developing countries. Her research is globally diverse with many projects in resource-poor settings, which provides workshop participants with exposure on how to balance methodological rigor with the practical realities of international field work.

Workshops are held both online and in person at Emory University in the Rollins School of Public Health, 1518 Clifton Road, Atlanta, Georgia, USA.

Course Description

This course aims to provide the necessary training and tools to key healthcare stakeholders to improve WASH in HCF and build the capacity of UNICEF personnel involved in WASH services, healthcare delivery, and health programming.  The approach supposes that implementers from both the health and WASH sectors require a comprehensive introduction to the importance, severity and implications of poor WASH conditions in healthcare facilities globally and in their regions.  The linkages between maternal and newborn health, health system strengthening, universal health coverage, quality of care, infection prevention and control (IPC), antimicrobial resistance (AMR) and standards for WASH in HCF are clearly elucidated and presented within a collaborative learning environment to increase knowledge and understanding of the key issues. In addition, the information regarding sustainable WASH in a healthcare facility is presented in such a way as to encourage participants to apply newly acquired knowledge through case studies and practical exercise.

This 10-week distance-learning course will seek to equip participants with critical information needed to address current and future challenges in WASH in HCF.  To do this, the course will enhance knowledge and skills in WASH in HCF assessments, health system integration, government engagement, advocacy, facility improvements, training, monitoring and learning. The course will align lessons with the eight practical steps outlined by the WHO and UNICEF for WASH in HCF. The course will also highlight the various WASH in HCF tools that are available as well as current systematic approaches to drive improvements in HCF.  Two recurring themes will be highlighted throughout the course: 1) the need for sustainable WASH solutions and 2) the need for WASH as a prerequisite for quality care and effective infection prevention and control. 

After the course, participants should be able to:

  1. Recognize the necessity of cross-sector input, collaboration and leadership in addressing the multi-sector problem of improving WASH in HCF
  2. Define and explain the various elements required for the implementation of WASH in healthcare facilities
  3. Discuss the importance of hardware interventions and (software) behavioral interventions to ensure the sustainability of WASH in HCF solutions
  4. Apply the knowledge gained from webinar sessions, homework and group discussions to solve questions posed in case studies and practical exercises
  5. Apply the knowledge gained from webinar sessions, homework and group discussions to design and prepare a brief workplan that could be used in their current role
