Evaluating a Public Health Program

“Evaluating a Public Health Program” is the last in a series of trainings dealing with the development and evaluation of public health programs. This training serves as a comprehensive tutorial on the Evaluation of a Public Health Program. The process of Program Evaluation continues the use of pertussis reduction in Lakeshore County as an example program and utilizes the logic model developed in the “Introduction to Logic Models” training.

The primary focus of the course is to explore the six steps and the four standard groups in the Center for Disease Control’s Framework for Program Evaluation. This framework represents all of the activities prescribed by the CDC in Program Evaluation, along with sensible guidance under the standards to aid in good decision-making.

*This course was launched in September 2011. It was reviewed in August 2015 to assess its relevance to the current public health workforce and evaluate its continued listing on the Region 2 PHTC website. The review process was based on a subset of recognized distance-based learning standards. In order to keep the course up-to-date, the reviewer additionally updated the dead links in the course, along with identifying further resources to help learners achieve the objectives of the course.
