Short Course - Health Program Evaluation - Scoping the Evaluation

Health Program Evaluation - Scoping the Evaluation
3-day Short Course
Wednesday 28th – Friday 30th November

Presenter: Dr Helen Jordan
Dr Helen Jordan is a senior lecturer at the Centre for Health Policy. Helen has  delivered this popular short course in a number of formats (1, 2 and 3-day courses) across Australia for a wide range of government and non-government departments, agencies, organisations and health services.

This course is designed for those who are involved in the development of evaluation frameworks, guidelines or plans for programs or projects in the public health field.

Program planners and implementers are often faced with the task of having to choose the most appropriate evaluation approach and the criteria by which to judge a program. Planning, negotiation, selecting evaluation questions and indicators, and modelling the program logic are integral components of this task. It is in these areas that this course is concentrated.

Participants do not require any background training or knowledge of evaluation, however, experience or knowledge of health programs would be an advantage. The first two days involve interactive class presentations and hands-on activities. On the third day, participants will work towards developing a program logic and evaluation plan for a program of their selection. Participants will have the opportunity to work on a program that they are involved with in the workplace – in groups or on their own. Participants will receive both group and one-to-one assistance during the 3-day course. The course is fully catered and class materials will be provided on the day.

Places are limited!
