CES Nova Scotia Monthly Online Journal Club
February 23, 2022, 12:05 – 12:55 p.m Atlantic Time
CES-Nova Scotia is pleased to collaborate with other Atlantic CES Chapters to host an online Journal Club for CES members and guests, on the fourth Wednesday of every month.
On February 23, we will examine an article from the Spring 2021 edition of the Canadian Journal of Program Evaluation, entitled: Creating Effectiveness Principles for Principles-Focused Developmental Evaluations in Health-Care Initiatives: Lessons Learned from Three Cases in British Colombia.
Article abstract: Principles-focused developmental evaluation is an emergent method of evaluation that is increasingly achieving relevance in initiatives seeking to transform health-care delivery within complex-adaptive systems. Creating meaningful effectiveness principles is considered a crucial first step in setting up such evaluations. In this article, we describe four practical steps that we applied in defining effectiveness principles to align with Patton’s GUIDE criteria. To illustrate our approach, this article features three principles-focused developmental evaluations implemented in British Columbia, highlighting lessons learned through the process of creating effectiveness principles.
We welcome you to read the article in advance and reflect on the three approaches described for deriving evaluable effectiveness principles, as the basis for Principles-Focussed Evaluation.
We look forward to seeing you!
