This subject provides an extension of studies in health program evaluation introduced in Health Program Evaluation 1. It focuses on issues relating to the selection and development of a preferred evaluation approach for a particular health program or policy. While it does so from an applied, practical perspective, key theoretical underpinnings of different evaluation approaches are also examined. Different types of evaluation design (in conjunction with relevant data collection and analysis issues) for different types of health programs and policies will be examined and will include clinical treatment programs, health promotion policies and programs and innovative service delivery programs in primary care. Students will have an opportunity to develop evaluation proposals in response to real world funding and policy settings.
On completion of the subject the student should be able to:
