Saudi National Mental Health Survey - Preparation, Monitoring & Implementation

a PSC Research Project

Investigators:   Beth-Ellen Pennell, Steven Heeringa

This project supports the main production phase of the Saudi National Mental Health Survey (SNMH). The pilot training and field production, conducted May and June 2011, were essential in testing the survey design features, technical systems, staff knowledge and skills, and the overall survey process and its monitoring.

Based on this pilot experience, the Saudi and Michigan project staff have identified a number of adjustments for improving the process and quality of the main field production.

For the Preparation, Monitoring and Implementation portion of the project (this proposal and budget), adjustments include: refine and test the instrument, review design options, improve sample management, add evaluation and verification components, modify daily field reports, and seek consultation on all of above.

For the Technical Training and Support portion of the project, the identified adjustments include: training and support for Saudi staff, consultation on questionnaire changes, Blaise programming support, refresher training for the help desk manager and data manager before field production and better communication during field production, documentation of common data management and help desk support tasks, interviewer training support during first phase of the production, field management support, and field quality control monitoring support.

Funding Period: 02/01/2012 to 01/31/2015

Country of Focus: Saudi Arabia
