As a result of the project the team has developed a range of design research tools which can be used to support projects using creative methods for:
a) collecting data on home cleaning and hygiene related to WASH (Water Sanitation and Hygiene) and/or Antimicrobial Resistance (AMR);
b) for co-designing cleaning interventions with professionals and communities to reduce the spread of infections in the home and other built environments. These can be freely downloaded (they are in PDF format) and be modified by researchers to suit their research needs.
These tools are an outcome of interdisciplinary research that combines design research with microbiology analysis. Therefore these tools reflect this in their design by integrating microbiological elements in the data visualisation and data gathering process.
