“From direct experience of implementing the project, I learned about research methods and sampling strategies, including interviewing list-based sampling, clinic walk-in sampling, snowball sampling, and the informed consent process. The participants agreed to be interviewed to document lessons learned for next clients. I understood about the process of seeking ethics approval from the Ministry of Health and collaboration from all selected referral hospitals and history of the study. I also learned about how to use tablets for data collection and various stories and problems that happened in communities and at hospitals.”
