Evaluating improvement and implementation for health

by John Øvretveit

callnumbericon RA 399 A1 O97 2014       ED-61761

Language: English  

Publisher: Maidenhead, Berkshire, England : Open University Press/McGraw-Hill Education, 2014

Summary:     "Evaluating Improvement and Implementation for Health describes modern evaluation methods in healthcare and policymaking, and challenges some of the assumptions of the evidence based healthcare movement: Are innovations always an improvement? - Are they always worth it? - Can they be implemented? - More importantly, should they be implemented? These are questions with practical consequences and questions which evaluation can answer - if we choose the right methods. This book will help you do just that - match the right evaluation method to the questions being asked. Pragmatic, even-handed and accessible, Evaluating Improvement and Implementation for Health provides an overview of the many different evaluation perspectives and methods used in the health sector. Suitable for health practitioners, managers, policy advisers, and researchers, its practical and multidisciplinary approach shows how to ensure that evaluation results in action"--Publisher's description.

An extended case study of a health education program working with teenage girls is referred to throughout the book, providing a useful example appropriate to courses in education, health promotion, social work, public policy, or community studies. A "Your Turn" feature in each chapter helps the reader apply the material to their own area of study. The book will be ideal as a primary text for an implementation monitoring course or as a supplemental text in a broader program evaluation course.
