About this Webinar

What are the principles of evaluation and how can your agency use data for effective evaluation? Evaluation is one of the most important skills that public health practitioners can use to meet the needs of the population they serve, to understand what is needed in their particular population, and to demonstrate the effectiveness of programs and services. Governmental and private funders providing resources for public health services are really interested in knowing that programs make a difference and that money is being spent well. Databases of evidence based programs and services, and requirements to use the programs and services, are ways to share ideas, and to show how some programs work better for some populations than others. Learn about this important part of the public health skill set in this webinar.

  • Summarize four basic principles of evaluation
  • Describe three types of evaluation:  formative, process, and outcome
