Qualitative Research Workshops

We offer a range of training workshops on qualitative research. We offer scheduled training workshops and mentored sessions that provide individual guidance on your own research project. Workshops are held twice per year. We also offer custom workshops to meet the training needs of your organization. Please see the workshop schedule with links to fliers below.

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. The workshops are led by Dr. Monique Hennink, associate professor of Global Health. She has authored four textbooks on qualitative research and has over 20 years of experience in the design, conduct, implementation, analysis, and publication of qualitative research. She conducts 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.

Scheduled workshops are held at Emory University in the Rollins School of Public Health, 1518 Clifton Road, Atlanta, Georgia.

Please note, enrollment is limited. After the deadline, applicants will be accepted on a space-available basis.

Registration Fee: $1,000.00

Course Description

This is a course on the surveillance of foodborne and waterborne diseases designed for public health practitioners and other students interested in the safety of food and water. It provides a broad overview of the major foodborne and waterborne diseases. The course describes how information from surveillance is used to improve public health policy and practice in ways that contribute to the safety of our food and water.

We focus on the microorganisms and chemical agents responsible for food and water transmitted diseases. We study the diseases they cause, the parthenogenesis, the clinical manifestations, reservoirs, modes of transmission, and epidemiology. The transport, survival, and fate of pathogens in the environment, the concept of indicator organisms as surrogates for pathogens, and the removal and inactivation of pathogens and indicators by water and wastewater treatment processes will be analyzed. Examples of the public health impact of quality assurance programs, such as Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points, to control foodborne and waterborne diseases in both industrialized and developing countries will be highlighted.

Please see the course syllabus for additional information.
