Feedback from the ‘Evidence-Based Health and Wellbeing’ event showed that colleagues would value a CPD session which focused on evaluation. This session will provide an overview of key issues to consider when planning for evaluation, including what type of information we need to collect and who from. The session will provide an introduction to logic models and Program Theory[1]; this approach helps to identify what to evaluate and when. Logic models help ensure evaluation is considered right from the start of a programme or intervention and also helps avoid the collection of unnecessary data.

Using logic models to plan evaluation allows us to:

  • Explore and understand whether intervention activities lead to the expected outcomes.
  • Consider our assumptions around what we already know about the expected outcomes of an intervention and what the gaps are.
  • Focus and prioritise evaluation activities to ensure that the right types of data are being collected from the start of the project.

Outcomes

  • Understanding evaluation and the role of logic models in the first step of the planning process.
  • Understanding how to create a logic model.
  • Understanding how to use a logic model to inform the evaluation planning process, including:
    • Confirming key stakeholders.
    • Identifying the scale and scope of the evaluation.
    • Identifying what data is already available/being collected.
    • Identifying what types of data to collect and when.

Who should attend?

  • Evidence and Intelligence Leads
  • Commissioners
  • Programme Managers
