Slide 3: 

HFH is one of the biggest Govt. Health Care provided hospital in the twin cities (RWP/ISB), the study is conducted in above mentioned hospital and the data was primary.

Slide 4: 

Observation is a primary method of collecting data by human, mechanical, electrical or electronics means with direct or indirect contact. Observation is the main source of information in the field research. The researcher goes into the field and observes the conditions in their natural state. There are many types of observation, direct or indirect, participant or non-participant, obtrusive or non-obtrusive, structured or non-structured etc.

Slide 5: 

Observation is a technique that involves systematically selecting, watching & recording: * Behaviour * Events * Noting Physical Characteristics

Slide 7: 

Data collection possibilities are wide and varied with any one method of collection not inherently better than any other Each has pros and cons that must be weighed up in view of a rich and complex context

Slide 8: 

All methods of collection require rigorous and systematic design and execution that includes Thorough planning Well considered development Effective piloting Weighed modification Deliberate implementation and execution Appropriate management and analysis

Slide 9: 

PRIMARY: Primary data are those data which are collected fresh and 1st time & thus happens to be original in character. SECONDARY: Secondary data someone else has collected

Slide 10: 

COMMUNICATION METHODS: Interacting with respondents Asking for their opinions, attitudes, motivations, characteristics OBSERVATION METHODS: No interaction with respondents Letting them behave naturally and drawing conclusions from their actions

Slide 12: 

Observation Method Interview Method Through Questionnaires Through Schedules Other Method

Slide 14: 

Observation relies on the researchers’ ability to gather data though their senses - and allows researchers to document actual behaviour rather than responses related to behaviour However, the observed can act differently when surveilled, and observations can be tainted by a researcher’s worldview

Slide 15: 

OBSERVATION CAN RANGE FROM: From structured to unstructured Disguised or Undisguised Natural or Contrived Non-participant to Participant Personal Mechanical

Slide 16: 

The observation process is sometimes treated casually, but is a method that needs to be treated as rigorously as any other The process should include planning, observing, recording, reflecting, and authenticating

Slide 19: 

Methods of collection data depends upon: Nature of problem Time and Money available Mostly, data is collected through use of primary source. one has to collect primary data for which a number of methods are available such as observations, in-depth techniques, experiments and surveys.
