"Program Development & Evaluation" is the first in a series of trainings dealing with the development and evaluation of public health programs. This training will walk you through the basic steps of program development, including identifying the problem, planning, implementing and evaluating the program. The latter part of the training explores both formative and summative evaluation, and why these components are so critical to the process.
As a result of this activity the learner will enhance their knowledge and competence in the steps of program development and evaluation.
- Recognize how evaluation fits within the program development process.
- List three reasons why public health program evaluations are important.
- Explain the difference between formative and summative program evaluations.
- Describe at least five aspects of a public health program that can be measured.
- Identify at least two factors external to a public health program that may affect its evaluation.
The logic model from this course has been used and adapted by the Association for Nursing Professional Development for Leadership in Nursing Professional Development: An Organizational & System Focus, 2nd edition, the first leadership text designed specifically for nursing professional development.
