Do you need to demonstrate the impact of projects in your organisation? Do you want to improve the design and implementation of your programmes? Are you tasked with carrying out an evaluation, but don’t know where to start?

This one day, hands-on workshop, run by the NIHR CLAHRC North Thames Academy, addresses these challenges. It is aimed at staff from NHS trusts, CCGs and local authorities, who have limited experience of conducting service evaluations.

After attending this workshop, you will have the skills and knowledge to undertake your own evaluation of a local programme or service.

 The course covers:

  • Different types of evaluation, including their pros and cons
  • How to select suitable methods and approaches for evaluating a local programme or service
  • Practical skills and tips in using evaluation methods and approaches
  • Ways of sharing your evaluation findings to make an impact

Who is this workshop suitable for?
Staff from NHS trusts, local authorities and clinical commissioning groups who need to evaluate local programmes or services as part of their work.


What preparation is needed?
Participants should attend the course with an evaluation in mind that they may need to carry out. No previous knowledge of evaluation is required, experience of study design and statistics.

The workshop is organised as part of the work of the NIHR CLAHRC North Thames. CLAHRCs are partnerships between universities, health and other organisations which have come together to conduct ground breaking research that will have a direct impact on the health of patients and the public.
