Requested from PCHRD by J. Mora at 02:14 PM on Nov 01, 2020.
Purpose: Research Study
Date of Coverage: 11/01/2015 - 11/01/2020

Mora 02:14 PM, Nov 01, 2020


I would like to request for tools, questionnaires or instruments used to check the level of stigma towards HCWs here in our country. I'm studying this in relation to COVID-19. I have talked to other countries about this and was provided with their questionnaire, but I would like to adapt a tool already used in the Philippines to be more valid, reliable and appropriate.

Keep safe.

Thank you!
