The Prisons Passports project involves a number of paper questionnaires to be entered into a database, and a number of extensive telephone interviews to be entered directly into the database. Prisoners need to be followed up at regular intervals and the follow up needs to be checked for completeness and timeliness. HISDU have developed a complex system to aid entry, randomise participants into intervention and control groups, provide reports and basic analysis.
