Behaviours are challenging to study as the accuracy of the information collected can be compromised by the collection tools used and the way they are applied. This paper contains some suggestions, drawn from the research, about studying hygiene behaviours. These are framed in terms of “lessons learned” with a focus on training field workers, observations, open questions, measuring time and actual practice, demonstrations, sampling, comparing data.
