Are you developing a health research project and want to know more about evaluation or do you want to develop your evaluation set?
Connected Health Cities are delivering a workshop on 30th November at the University of Manchester that may be for you.
Evaluations are a core part of implementing an intervention. However, in reality, they are often an after-though, often poorly designed and conducted at the last minute. A well-designed evaluation will provide both funders and individuals with insight into the benefits, barriers and impacts of an intervention. With planned milestones along the route, you create the opportunity to mark and celebrate progress with defined outputs.
This workshop aims to equip participants with the knowledge to design and deliver a pragmatic evaluation of a project and takes you from designing and delivering an evaluation from the start of a project. You will look at the different types of evaluation, including their pros and cons; how to select suitable methods and approaches for evaluating a project; and practical skills and tips using evaluation methods and approaches.
By the end of each workshop, participants will be able to plan and implement monitoring and evaluation procedures in their own projects.
Developed by an experienced team in conjunction with the Connected Health Cities programme at The University of Manchester, the workshop will provide an engaging learning experience that will take you through the nuts and bolts of designing and running an evaluation.
The workshop will be led by Dr Stephanie Steels, CHC Senior Evaluation Specialist.
This event is open to all who wish to develop or enhance their evaluation design and implementation skills. You may be working in healthcare, social care, a third sector organisation or you may be a researcher who has been tasked with implementing an evaluation. No experience of evaluation needed.
The workshop is open to:
- NHS and social care staff
- Technology companies
- Third sector staff
- CHC staff
- Other researchers
If you are already in the middle of your project, you are very welcome, but you you might prefer to come to the Evaluation SOS workshop to work on your specific project.
