The P2P Data Collection System folder contains all of the tools you need to disseminate the form(s) and access the resulting data. To begin, review the P2P Data Collection Systems - RCN Instructions PDF in your P2P Data Collection System Folder. In this document, you will also find instructions for how to proceed if your RCN has already begun using the P2P Data Log from years past. 

To accompany the written instructions in your P2P Data Collection System Folder, we have also created a video tutorial on how to use the system. Additionally, a Word Document outlining all of the items in the form is available for review prior to data entry.
