Personnel and Training Required

The interviewer must be trained to conduct personal interviews with individuals from the general population. The interviewer must be trained and found to be competent (i.e., tested by an expert) at the completion of personal interviews.* The interviewer should be trained to prompt respondents further if a "don’t know" response is provided.

* There are multiple modes to administer this question (e.g., paper-and-pencil and computer-assisted interviews).

Equipment Needs

While the source protocol was developed to be administered by a telephone interview, there are other methods (computer-assisted telephone instrument). The PhenX Working Group acknowledges that these questions can be administered in a computerized format (i.e. computer-assisted telephone instrument). Computer software is necessary to develop computer-assisted instruments. The interviewer will require a laptop computer or handheld computer to administer a computer-assisted questionnaire.

Requirements

Requirement CategoryRequired
Average time of greater than 15 minutes in an unaffected individualNo
Major equipmentNo
Specialized requirements for biospecimen collectionNo

Mode of Administration

Self-administered

Life Stage:

Infant, Toddler, Child

Specific Instructions:

Note that "DK" means "Don’t Know" and “RF” means “Refused to answer.”

The Expert Review Panel recommends that additional questions be added to this protocol to determine how many children attend the day care facility or preschool. The revised protocol is available here: [link[Revised_Protocol_for_Day_Care-Preschool_Attendance.docx|www.phenxtoolkit.org/toolkit_content/supplemental_info/environmental/additional_info/Revised_Protocol_for_Day_Care-Preschool_Attendance.docx]]

Definition

Questions about the child’s attendance at day care or preschool.

Purpose

Day care attendance influences a child’s health. Environmental contaminants could be present at the child’s day care or preschool. Infectious diseases spread rapidly from one child to another in these facilities. Several studies have concluded that day care attendance, especially at a young age (e.g., < 2 years old), significantly increases the likelihood of a child contracting asthma or wheezing; however, the same child is less likely to have respiratory conditions later (> 6 years old).

Selection Rationale

An important measure of early life exposures, this set of questions was preferred because they included dates of attendance at the day care or preschool and the number of hours per week the child spent at the day care or preschool.
