Evaluating Healthy Public Policies: A ten step process, Health Promotion Capacity Building, PHO

February 6, 2015

10:30 a.m.–12:00 p.m.

Public health professionals influence the development of healthy public policies. However, few evaluations of the content, implementation and outcomes of these types of policies are conducted. The purpose of this webinar is to apply the ten steps for conducting an evaluation to evaluate healthy public policies (e.g. school nutrition policies, workplace health policies and/or municipal policies). Participants will be oriented to three types of policy evaluations (content, implementation and outcome), the purpose of evaluability assessments and how to design an evaluation plan specific to evaluating healthy public policies. Case examples will be presented.

Presenters: Allison Meserve and Kim Bergeron

Learning Objectives:

By the end of the webinar, participants will be able to:

  • Understand three types of healthy public policy evaluation
  • Recognize the importance of an evaluability assessment
