Data collection strategies
1. Document review
1. KSDPP annual summaries of activities and work plans
Description of school- and community-based program of activities, from year 1994 to 2016
2. Scientific publications
Publications in academic journals, thesis and book chapter directly related to KSDPP (including descriptions of design and general approach of the project, implementation evaluation, outcomes assessment) or related to the antecedent stage of KSDPP (for instance, publications documenting baseline rates of diabetes in Kahnawake), from year 1988 to 2016.
2. Talking circles
1. Intervention staff and Community Advisory Board (CAB) members
Past and current KSDPP intervention staff who develop(ed) and implement(ed) KSDPP health promotion interventions in the schools and the community. Community Advisory Board (CAB) members are past and current members of the committee supervising the administrative and financial operations of KSDPP, reviewing all intervention, research and training activities and ensuring research accountability to the community.
2. Research team members
Past and current community researchers from Kahnawake and researchers from various universities (including Université de Montréal and McGill University) that have contributed to a research project with KSDPP.
3. Community workers
Professionals working in different public sectors of the community (education, healthcare and social services) and providing direct or indirect services to or for the benefit of community members.
4. Community members
Residents of Kahnawake who are not involved in the previous groups and that can be conceived more as potential beneficiaries of the program (children’s relatives including parents and grand-parents).
