Program Overview

Recently, an emphasis has been placed on the effects that various training and development initiatives have had on enhancing the capacity of the public health workforce and related organizational effectiveness. In turn, issues related to measuring and assessing the effects of these efforts have become much more salient. Issues surrounding who should serve as evaluators, what behaviors or outcomes should be included in the evaluation process and what impact the organization itself has on the outcomes are increasingly significant. This presentation will explain the key concepts related to evaluating organizational effectiveness in the public health domain. Examples will be provided throughout the presentation to illustrate the issues from a public health perspective. In addition, guidelines will be presented for executing an effective organizational evaluation process.
