The program evaluation

One way to proceed is using a “left-to-right” process by connecting a series of “If, then” statements that help you identify and connect activities and anticipated outcomes. Ask yourself how you can complete the following to describe your program: If we have and , we can (do) ______ and ______, which will result in and The first two blanks list the resources available to conduct your program, the third and fourth blanks describe the activities to be conducted, and the final two blanks list the expected outputs of those activities. Example: “If we have program funding and participating clinics, we can inform our clinic partners of the need to implement clinical practice guidelines and sponsor training for clinic teams on the chronic care model, which will then increase the number of clinic teams who are aware of clinical practice guidelines and who implement the chronic care model. Logic Models Page 4 A Series of “If…Then” Statements If you have access to them, then you can use them to accomplish your planned activities If you accomplish your planned activities to the extent you intended, then your participants will benefit in certain ways If these benefits are achieved, then certain changes in groups or communities are expected to occur If you accomplish your planned activities, then you will hopefully deliver the amount of service that you intended Certain resources are needed to operate your program Resources/ Inputs Activities Output Outcome Impact Your Planned Work Your Intended Results By asking other similar questions, you can determine your short-, intermediate-, and longterm outcomes. If we educate clinic teams and train them in the chronic care model in clinics, then we will see and occur in the short-term. Example: “If we educate clinic teams and train them in the chronic care model in clinics, we will see implementation of the chronic care model resulting in appropriate treatment for patients with high blood pressure.” Continuing with the flow of the logic model, you should next complete: If clinics implement the chronic care model and have an increase in appropriate treatment for high blood pressure (short-term outcomes), then we will see occur (intermediate outcomes). Example: “If clinics use the chronic care model and increase appropriate treatment for patients with high blood pressure, then we will see an increase in the number of patients with high blood pressure under control.” Next, consider what the accomplishment of intermediate outcomes will lead to: If there is an increase in the number of current clinic patients whose high blood pressure is under control, then we expect that to lead to (long-term outcomes). Example: “If there is an increase in the number of current clinic patients whose high blood pressure is under control, then we will see a reduction in heart disease and stroke among these patients.”
