Logic Models: Theory to practice, Public Health Ontario

March 30, 2016

10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.

​A logic model is a graphical illustration of a program’s resources, activities and expected outcomes. These models help simplify complex relationships and demonstrate the logical flow of program development and intended end results.
Logic models are valuable tools that can be used throughout the lifecycle of a program or an initiative. In public health logic models are used during:

  • Program planning;
  • Program implementation;
  • Evaluation; and
  • Developing a business case for program funding.

Speakers: Samiya Abdi, Gloria Mensah

  • Explain the purpose of logic models and describe the different components of a logic model
