This one-day short course is designed for nurses and nurse researchers seeking a better understanding of how to evaluate services and programs they implement. Led by Mr Timoci O’Connor and Dr Ruth Aston from the Centre for Program Evaluation, the course will provide you with an overview of evaluation and equip you with practical skills in problem definition and situational analysis, evaluation planning and design, and the development of program logic models.
At the end of the workshop you will be able to:
- Define evaluation, and identify the differences between monitoring and evaluation
- Understand different types of evaluation (formative, summative, needs-assessment) and how they align to the program development cycle
- Identify when different types of evaluation are useful, and why
- Understand health evaluation models (RE-AIM, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Program Evaluation cycle)
- Understand how to conduct problem and situational analysis
- Understand program logic modelling, how logic can be used in program design
Workshop facilitators will use scenarios and vignettes to guide group activities, however, if you are currently or planning to design a program or undertake an evaluation, we encourage you to share this at the workshop.
