An assessment of the operation of an external quality assessment (EQA) scheme in histopathology in the South Thames (West) region: 1995-1998. (1/6835)

AIMS: To describe the design and organisation of a voluntary regional external quality assessment (EQA) scheme in histopathology, and to record the results obtained over a three year period. METHODS: A protocol is presented in which circulation of EQA slides alternated with teaching sessions. Procedures for the choice of suitable cases, evaluation of submitted diagnoses, and feedback of results to participants are described. The use of teaching sessions, complementary to the slide circulations, and dealing with current diagnostic problems is also outlined. RESULTS: Participation rates in the nine slide circulations varied between 66% and 89%, mean 85%. Overall scores were predictably high but 4% of returns, from 10 pathologists, were unsatisfactory. These low scores were typically isolated or intermittent and none of the participants fulfilled agreed criteria for chronic poor performers. CONCLUSIONS: This scheme has been well supported and overall performances have been satisfactory. The design was sufficiently discriminatory to reveal a few low scores which are analysed in detail. Prompt feedback of results to participants with identification of all "incomplete" and "wrong" diagnoses is essential. Involvement of local histopathologists in designing, running, and monitoring such schemes is important.  (+info)

General practitioners' continuing education: a review of policies, strategies and effectiveness, and their implications for the future. (2/6835)

BACKGROUND: The accreditation and provision of continuing education for general practitioners (GPs) is set to change with new proposals from the General Medical Council, the Government, and the Chief Medical Officer. AIM: To review the theories, policies, strategies, and effectiveness in GP continuing education in the past 10 years. METHOD: A systematic review of the literature by computerized and manual searches of relevant journals and books. RESULTS: Educational theory suggests that continuing education (CE) should be work-based and use the learner's experiences. Audit can play an important role in determining performance and needs assessment, but at present is largely a separate activity. Educational and professional support, such as through mentors or co-tutors, has been successfully piloted but awaits larger scale evaluation. Most accredited educational events are still the postgraduate centre lecture, and GP Tutors have a variable role in CE management and provision. Controlled trials of CE strategies suggest effectiveness is enhanced by personal feedback and work prompts. Qualitative studies have demonstrated that education plays only a small part in influencing doctors' behavior. CONCLUSION: Maintaining good clinical practice is on many stakeholders' agendas. A variety of methods may be effective in CE, and larger scale trials or evaluations are needed.  (+info)

Randomised controlled trial of follow up care in general practice of patients with myocardial infarction and angina: final results of the Southampton heart integrated care project (SHIP). The SHIP Collaborative Group. (3/6835)

OBJECTIVE: To assess the effectiveness of a programme to coordinate and support follow up care in general practice after a hospital diagnosis of myocardial infarction or angina. DESIGN: Randomised controlled trial; stratified random allocation of practices to intervention and control groups. SETTING: All 67 practices in Southampton and south west Hampshire, England. SUBJECTS: 597 adult patients (422 with myocardial infarction and 175 with a new diagnosis of angina) who were recruited during hospital admission or attendance at a chest pain clinic between April 1995 and September 1996. INTERVENTION: Programme to coordinate preventive care led by specialist liaison nurses which sought to improve communication between hospital and general practice and to encourage general practice nurses to provide structured follow up. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Serum total cholesterol concentration, blood pressure, distance walked in 6 minutes, confirmed smoking cessation, and body mass index measured at 1 year follow up. RESULTS: Of 559 surviving patients at 1 year, 502 (90%) were followed up. There was no significant difference between the intervention and control groups in smoking (cotinine validated quit rate 19% v 20%), lipid concentrations (serum total cholesterol 5.80 v 5.93 mmol/l), blood pressure (diastolic pressure 84 v 85 mm Hg), or fitness (distance walked in 6 minutes 443 v 433 m). Body mass index was slightly lower in the intervention group (27.4 v 28.2; P=0.08). CONCLUSIONS: Although the programme was effective in promoting follow up in general practice, it did not improve health outcome. Simply coordinating and supporting existing NHS care is insufficient. Ischaemic heart disease is a chronic condition which requires the same systematic approach to secondary prevention applied in other chronic conditions such as diabetes mellitus.  (+info)

Community-level HIV intervention in 5 cities: final outcome data from the CDC AIDS Community Demonstration Projects. (4/6835)

OBJECTIVES: This study evaluated a theory-based community-level intervention to promote progress toward consistent condom and bleach use among selected populations at increased risk for HIV infection in 5 US cities. METHODS: Role-model stories were distributed, along with condoms and bleach, by community members who encouraged behavior change among injection drug users, their female sex partners, sex workers, non-gay-identified men who have sex with men, high-risk youth, and residents in areas with high sexually transmitted disease rates. Over a 3-year period, cross-sectional interviews (n = 15,205) were conducted in 10 intervention and comparison community pairs. Outcomes were measured on a stage-of-change scale. Observed condom carrying and intervention exposure were also measured. RESULTS: At the community level, movement toward consistent condom use with main (P < .05) and nonmain (P < .05) partners, as well as increased condom carrying (P < .0001), was greater in intervention than in comparison communities. At the individual level, respondents recently exposed to the intervention were more likely to carry condoms and to have higher stage-of-change scores for condom and bleach use. CONCLUSIONS: The intervention led to significant communitywide progress toward consistent HIV risk reduction.  (+info)

The reach and effectiveness of a national mass media-led smoking cessation campaign in The Netherlands. (5/6835)

OBJECTIVES: This study examined the reach, effectiveness, and cost-effectiveness of a mass media-led smoking cessation campaign including television shows, a television clinic, a quit line, local group programs, and a comprehensive publicity campaign. METHODS: A random sample of baseline smokers (n = 1338) was interviewed before and after the campaign and at a 10-month follow-up. A nonpretested control group (n = 508) of baseline smokers was incorporated to control for test effects. RESULTS: Most smokers were aware of the campaign, although active participation rates were low. Dose-response relations between exposure and quitting were found. The follow-up point prevalence abstinence rate attributable to the campaign was estimated to be 4.5% after control for test effects and secular trends. The cost per long-term quitter was about $12. CONCLUSIONS: In spite of a massive rise in tobacco promotion expenditures prior to the campaign and the absence of governmental control over the media, the campaign under study may have increased normal cessation rates substantially.  (+info)

Decline in cigarette consumption following implementation of a comprehensive tobacco prevention and education program--Oregon, 1996-1998. (6/6835)

In November 1996, residents of Oregon approved a ballot measure increasing the cigarette tax by 30 cents (to 68 cents per pack). The measure stipulated that 10% of the additional tax revenue be allocated to the Oregon Health Division (OHD) to develop and implement a tobacco-use prevention program. In 1997, OHD created Oregon's Tobacco Prevention and Education Program (TPEP), a comprehensive, community-based program modeled on the successful tobacco-use prevention programs in California and Massachusetts. To assess the effects of the tax increase and TPEP in Oregon, OHD evaluated data on the number of packs of cigarettes taxed before (1993-1996) and after (1997-1998) the ballot initiative and implementation of the program. Oregon's results also were compared with national data. This report summarizes the results of the analysis, which indicate that consumption of cigarettes in Oregon declined substantially after implementation of the excise tax and TPEP and exceeded the national rate of decline.  (+info)

Follow-up care in general practice of patients with myocardial infarction or angina pectoris: initial results of the SHIP trial. Southampton Heart Integrated Care Project. (7/6835)

OBJECTIVE: We aimed to assess the effectiveness of a nurse-led programme to ensure that follow-up care is provided in general practice after hospital diagnosis of myocardial infarction (MI) or angina pectoris. METHODS: We conducted a randomized controlled trial with stratified random allocation of practices to intervention and control groups within all 67 practices in Southampton and South-West Hampshire, England. The subjects were 422 adult patients with a MI and 175 patients with a new diagnosis of angina recruited during hospital admission or chest pain clinic attendance between April 1995 and September 1996. Intervention involved a programme of secondary preventive care led by specialist liaison nurses in which we sought to improve communication between hospital and general practice and to encourage general practice nurses to provide structured follow-up. The main outcome measures were: extent of general practice follow-up; attendance for cardiac rehabilitation; medication prescribed at hospital discharge; self-reported smoking, diet and exercise; and symptoms of chest pain and shortness of breath. Follow-ups of 90.1 % of subjects at 1 month and 80.6% at 4 months were carried out. RESULTS: Median attendance for nurse follow-up in the 4 months following diagnosis was 3 (IQR 2-5) in intervention practices and 0 (IQR 0-1) in control practices; the median number of visits to a doctor was the same in both groups. At hospital discharge, levels of prescribing of preventive medication were low in both intervention and control groups: aspirin 77 versus 74% (P = 0.32), cholesterol lowering agents 9 versus 10% (P = 0.8). Conversely, 1 month after diagnosis, the vast majority of patients in both groups reported healthy lifestyles: 90 versus 84% reported eating healthy food (P = 0.53); 73 versus 67% taking regular exercise (P = 0.13); 89 versus 92% not smoking (P = 0.77). Take up of cardiac rehabilitation was 37% in the intervention group and 22% in the control group (P = 0.001); the median number of sessions attended was also higher (5 versus 3 out of 6). CONCLUSIONS: The intervention of a liaison nurse is effective in ensuring that general practice nurses follow-up patients after hospital discharge. It does not alter the number of follow-up visits made by the patient to the doctor. Levels of prescribing and reported changes in behaviour at hospital discharge indicate that the main tasks facing practice nurses during follow-up are to help patients to sustain changes in behaviour, to encourage doctors to prescribe appropriate medication and to encourage patients to adhere to medication while returning to an active life. These are very different tasks to those traditionally undertaken by practice nurses in relation to primary prevention, where the emphasis has been on identifying risk and motivating change. Assessment of the effectiveness of practice nurses in undertaking these new tasks requires a longer follow-up.  (+info)

Challenges in securing access to care for children. (8/6835)

Congressional approval of Title XXI of the Social Security Act, which created the State Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP), is a significant public effort to expand health insurance to children. Experience with the Medicaid program suggests that eligibility does not guarantee children's enrollment or their access to needed services. This paper develops an analytic framework and presents potential indicators to evaluate CHIP's performance and its impact on access, defined broadly to include access to health insurance and access to health services. It also presents options for moving beyond minimal monitoring to an evaluation strategy that would help to improve program outcomes. The policy considerations associated with such a strategy are also discussed.  (+info)

The philosophy underlying CPPSRs Program Evaluation Services was captured well by Anne Petersen, Senior Vice President for Programs, W.K. Kellogg Foundation. Program evaluation should be conducted not only to demonstrate that a project worked, but also to improve the way it works. An evaluation approach should be rigorous in its efforts to determine the worth of a program and to guide program implementation and management as well as relevant and useful to program practitioners. Although evaluation is useful to document impact and demonstrate accountability, it should also lead to more effective programs, and a better knowledge of what works.. CPPSR believes that too often program evaluation is only thought of as the final stage of a program that gauges outcomes and establishes accountability. A better perspective sees program evaluation as integral to the evolution of the whole program from planning, to implementation, to final assessment. In this light, program evaluation helps managers ...

Program evaluation combines both theory and practice and is used by organizations to gather information for planning, designing, implementing, and assessing results.. Effective program evaluation should be systemic, use a sound evaluation methodology and use multiple sources of information. Program Evaluation is a process by which previously set targets can be reviewed to get an idea of what has been accomplished. It can also help organizations learn from shortcomings, and figure out how best to move forward in the future. According to the Government of Canada, Evaluating program progress and reporting on results are good management practices. Evaluations give senior managers evidence-based information to improve programming, shape new policies and programs, and ensure value for money. Evaluation studies consider a programs ongoing need, intended outcomes, and whether there are alternative, more cost-effective ways to meet objectives.. For academic articles and resources on Program Evaluation ...
The purpose of this project is to develop a logic model and process evaluation framework for a therapeutic garden program at Banfield Pavilion, a residential long term care facility located in Vancouver, B.C. A six-step process evaluation design developed by Saunders, Evans, and Joshi (2005) is used to develop the evaluation framework. Steps of the framework include (1) describing the program, (2) describing complete and acceptable delivery of the program, (3) developing the potential list of questions, (4) determining methods, (5) considering the programs resources, context, and characteristics, and (6) the final process evaluation plan. The logic model connects program elements to concepts drawn from Ulrichs (1984) stress reduction theory (SRT) and theory of supportive garden design (1999). A central consideration of the evaluation is whether the program should focus more on spontaneous or structured activities and garden interactions. Both the logic model and evaluation framework can be ...
Downloadable! Federal social program evaluation has blossomed over the past quarter century. Despite this growth, there has been little accompanying public debate on research ethics. This essay explores the origins and the implications of this relative silence on ethical matters. It reviews the federal regulations that generally govern research ethics, and recounts the history whereby the evaluation of federal programs was specifically exempted from the purview of those regulations. Through a discussion of a recent evaluation that raised ethical concerns, the essay poses-but does not answer-three questions: (1) Are there good reasons to hold federal social program evaluations to different standards than those that apply to other research?; (2) If so, what ethical standards should be used to assess such evaluations?; and (3) Should a formal mechanism be developed to ensure that federal social program evaluations are conducted ethically? © 2005 by the Association for Public Policy Analysis and
Not every organization is ready to do a program evaluation. Employees might be suspicious of ulterior motives. Perhaps previous evaluations were badly done and no one wants to go through that exercise again! There may be little credibility in evaluations if program staff were not involved in designing and conducting the review. If the focus is on assigning blame for a failing program, you have bigger problems than the evaluation to address. Make sure your team knows that taking a hard look at performance is something that is rewarded. No one who is fearful of being blamed and penalized will take an honest look at their own work.. CCCC has had a good experience with program reviews and there are no special concerns or considerations to be addressed prior to launching this evaluation. CCCC began doing formal program evaluations when we added a new standard for our Certified Members that requires program evaluations to be done. After all, whats good for the goose is good for the gander! If CCCC ...

What sets Kapp and Andersons book apart is an emphasis for nonevaluators on a succinct argument for conducting evaluations and a thorough discussion of applied ethics in evaluation. Agency-Based Program Evaluation would be a good fit for a program evaluation survey course, especially for those in the social work and human service professions (e.g., family therapists). Practitioners of all specialties who are interested in adding program evaluation activities to their skill set will find this a useful introduction to the field, but it shouldnt serve as the sole resource.. ...

This study represents a program evaluation of Swim for Health: a multiagency partnership in two local authorities in the United Kingdom that sought to increase aquatic activity participation among four target groups. A theory-driven, scientific program evaluation model was used to assess if the program achieved its stated aims (Rossi et al 2003). Chronological records were maintained. Participation figures were collected and triangulated with 20 semistructured interviews with program stakeholders. Barriers to program implementation included a lack of prior needs-analysis of service provision and the goals of the program did not always match those of stakeholders. However, Swim for Health increased participation in three of four target groups. Program developments were also limited by availability of staff able to deliver novel activities other than aqua aerobics. Consequently participants were primarily women. Implications for future programs are discussed.
Evaluating creative youth development practice builds on a long history of lived experience and an ever-growing body of knowledge in the youth development sector. The best touchstone for these evaluations is the value of creative inquiry and expression that underpins CYD itself. CYD evaluation strategies should align with the core values of the movement by involving youth in their design and application, honoring creative expression, and using mixed-methodological approaches that capture CYDs holistic outcomes.. In this seventh webinar in the CYD Toolkit Series, Justin Jalea discussed trends and recommendations from his landscape paper, Program Evaluation, published by Americans for the Arts and the CYD National Partnership. He was joined by practitioners: Sasha Metcalf, Famo Musa, and Julie Kendig who are integrating youth participation in program evaluation and using data to boldly and creatively demonstrate impact..

A logic model was developed based on an analysis of the 2012 American School Counselor Association (ASCA) National Model in order to provide direction for program evaluation initiatives. The logic model identified three outcomes (increased student achievement/gap reduction, increased school counseling program resources, and systemic change and school improvement), seven outputs (student change, parent involvement, teacher competence, school policies and processes, competence of the school counselors, improvements in the school counseling program, and administrator support), six major clusters of activities (direct services, indirect services, school counselor personnel evaluation, program management processes, program evaluation processes and program advocacy) and two inputs (foundational elements and program resources). The identification of these logic model components and linkages among these components was used to identify a number of necessary and important evaluation studies of the ASCA ...

A nonprofit should engage in organizational evaluation to ensure that all financial resources and human capital are being used toward fulfilling its mission. Defined, cost-effective procedures must be used for evaluating, both qualitatively and quantitatively, programs and projects in relation to mission. These procedures should address programmatic efficiency and effectiveness, outcomes for program participants, and the relationship of these outcomes to the cost of achieving them. Evaluations should include input from program participants and should monitor the satisfaction of participants. They should be candid and should be used by leadership to strengthen the organizations effectiveness, and, when necessary, be used to make programmatic changes.. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) define program evaluation as the systematic collection of information about the activities, characteristics, and outcomes of programs to make judgments about the program, improve program ...
This paper demonstrates that even under ideal conditions, social experiments in general only uniquely determine the mean impacts of programs but not the median or the distribution of program impacts. The conventional common parameter evaluation model widely used in econometrics is one case where experiments uniquely determine joint the distribution of program impacts. That model assumes that everyone responds to a social program in the same way. Allowing for heterogeneous responses to programs, the data from social experiments are consistent with a wide variety of alternative impact distribution. We discuss why it is interesting to know the distribution of program impacts. We propose and implement a variety of different ways of incorporating prior information to reduce the wide variability intrinsic in experimental data. Robust Bayesian methods and deconvolution methods are developed and applied. We analyze earnings and employment data on adult women from a recent social experiment. In order to ...
The Framework for Program Evaluation in Public Health (Framework) is a practical, nonprescriptive tool designed to summarize and organize essential elements of program evaluation. The document (available from www.cdc.gov/eval/framework.htm) recommends the following six steps for program evaluation: 1) engage stakeholders, 2) describe the program, 3) focus the evaluation design, 4) gather credible evidence, 5) justify conclusions, and 6) ensure use and share lessons learned (8). Each step includes subpoints that describe issues to consider when creating an evaluation plan (8). Another element of the Framework is a set of 30 standards for assessing the quality of evaluation activities, organized into four categories: utility, feasibility, propriety, and accuracy. Adhering to the steps and standards improves how public health practitioners conceive and conduct evaluation efforts. The Framework emphasizes the importance of constructing practical evaluation strategies that involve diverse program ...

Develop a Proposal for a Comprehensive Program Evaluation[HOMELESSNESS]Step 1: Students will identify an agency program (e.g., intervention, prevention) aimed to address an identified client need and describe the current best practice approaches.Students should provide a narrative description of the program and the agency (e.g., theoretical model/framework, agency mission, program goals, target population, community context, need being addressed by the program, length and duration, mode of delivery etc.).Drawing from the scholarly literature in their practice area, students must then present a comprehensive review of the best practice literature associated with the target populations identified need (e.g., best practices for preventing TEEN HOMELESSNESS). In this section, students must attend to the best practices associated with a given problem area (e.g. teen pregnancy, substance use, poor parenting skills), as well as, relevant developmental (adolescence, adulthood, older adulthood) and ...
Study Purpose: The Serious and Violent Offender Reentry Initiative (SVORI) funded agencies to develop programs to improve criminal justice, employment, education, health, and housing outcomes for released prisoners. SVORI was a goal-oriented initiative that specified outcomes that should be achieved by programs that were developed locally. The purpose of the SVORI multi-site evaluation was to determine whether the selected programs accomplished the overall goal of the Reentry Initiative -- increasing public safety by reducing recidivism among the populations served by the program -- and determine the relative costs and benefits of the program. The SVORI multi-site evaluation included an impact evaluation to determine the effectiveness of programming. Specifically, the purpose of the impact evaluation was to determine whether individuals who participated in enhanced reentry programming, as measured by their enrollment in SVORI programs, had improved post-release outcomes than comparable ...

STUDY OBJECTIVE--To examine the difficulties of developing and maintaining outcome evaluation designs in long term, community based health promotion programmes. DESIGN--Semistructured interviews of health promotion managers. SETTING--Wales and two reference health regions in England. PARTICIPANTS--Nine health promotion managers in Wales and 18 in England. MEASUREMENTS AND MAIN RESULTS--Information on selected heart health promotion activity undertaken or coordinated by health authorities from 1985-90 was collected. The Heartbeat Wales coronary heart disease prevention programme was set up in 1985, and a research and evaluation strategy was established to complement the intervention. A substantial increase in the budget occurred over the period. In the reference health regions in England this initiative was noted and rapidly taken up, thus compromising their use as control areas. CONCLUSION--Information on large scale, community based health promotion programmes can disseminate quickly and ...

Professional program evaluators adhere to the Program Evaluation Standards, published by the Joint Committee on Standards in Educational Evaluation. These standards ensure that evaluations of educational programs have four basic attributes: Utility, Feasibility, Propriety, and Accuracy. The Propriety Standards ensure a commitment to respect the confidentiality of participants in evaluations, as well as a complete and fair assessment and impartial reporting. The Accuracy Standards require that the data (both quantitative and qualitative) be appropriately and systematically analyzed and that the data are reliable and valid for the intended use. In addition, evaluators follow the Guiding Principles for Evaluators, adopted by the American Evaluation Association. These principles provide an expectation for ethical behavior by evaluators. The Office of Program Evaluation works to ensure that the evaluations we conduct are balanced and fair.. ...

In recent years, there has been an increased interest within the program evaluation field for introducing systems thinking concepts. However, most of these attempts have been primarily directed towards supporting the practice of evaluation and not towards making theoretical advancements. This article is focused on introducing systems thinking, and specifically perspectives and concepts from the work in critical systems thinking (CST), at a theoretical level in the program evaluation field, towards a reframing of the Fourth Generation Evaluation methodology. The process for carrying out such reframing is introduced, as well as describing the major changes produced in the evaluation methodology by incorporating the CST perspective. A new model is proposed, and how this model may be beneficial for conducting an evaluation is discussed with recommendations made for future developments.. ...
A significant nursing shortage exists in the United States, which is compounded by high turnover rates. Skilled nurse preceptors are needed to train and assimilate nurses, which would improve retention of nurse preceptors, facilitate transition of nurses to the practice environment, and increase the number of preceptors within the organization. A preceptor preparation program in a 300-bed hospital was developed to promote nurse preceptor success while enhancing learning outcomes and creating a supportive work environment. The organizations leaders are interested in the successes of the program and its long-term role in retaining nurse preceptors who completed the preceptor preparation program. Therefore, the purpose of this doctor of nursing practice (DNP) project was to develop a program evaluation model where the institution could assess the retention rate of preceptors and the overall effectiveness of the program. The evaluation framework consisted of the Benners model skill acquisition, from

BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE: The realization of Health Information Systems (HIS) requires rigorous evaluation that addresses technology, human and organization issues. Our review indicates that current evaluation methods evaluate different aspects of HIS and they can be improved upon. A new evaluation framework, human, organization and technology-fit (HOT-fit) was developed after having conducted a critical appraisal of the findings of existing HIS evaluation studies. HOT-fit builds on previous models of IS evaluation--in particular, the IS Success Model and the IT-Organization Fit Model. This paper introduces the new framework for HIS evaluation that incorporates comprehensive dimensions and measures of HIS and provides a technological, human and organizational fit. METHODS: Literature review on HIS and IS evaluation studies and pilot testing of developed framework. The framework was used to evaluate a Fundus Imaging System (FIS) of a primary care organization in the UK. The case study was conducted ...

Many empirical literature in economics, social sciences, and medical treatment studies the causal effects of programs, polices or drug effects. In the economic context, the major focus on program evaluation literature is to measure the impact of a particular treatment on a set of individuals, regions, or countries that exposed to such a treatment. It is of particular importance to policy makers, medical practitioners and others. In order to evaluate the effect of the treatment, Rubin (1974) proposed the interpretation of causal statements as comparisons of the so-called potential outcomes, which is de fined as a pair of outcomes associated to a particular individual given different levels of exposure to the treatment with only one of the outcomes observed by researchers. Models are developed for this pair of potential outcomes one for the treated state, another for the control state. In this thesis, a panel data methodology is proposed under the potential outcomes framework to measure the ...
The project evaluated the Illinois State Board of Education (ISBE) Prevention Initiative (PI) Programs. Goals of the evaluation included assessing program quality as defined by ISBE birth to three standards and exploring the kind of work programs do with families. Programs were selected for inclusion in the study to represent a variety of sizes, locations, and program models used throughout the state, and about 30 out of the 158 grantees across Illinois will participate..

This important issue of New Directions for Evaluation highlights social network analysis (SNA) methodology and its application within program evaluation. The application of SNA is relatively new for mainstream evaluation, and like most other innovations, it has yet to be fully explored in this field. The volume aims to fill the gaps within SNA methodology exploration by first reviewing the foundations and development of network analysis within the social sciences and the field of evaluation. The focus then turns to the methodology. Who holds power in a network, and what measures indicate whether that power is direct or indirect? Which subgroups have formed, and where are they positioned in an organization? How divided is an organization? Who forms the core of a collaboration, and where are the experts in an organization? These are the types of common questions explored in the four case studies of the use of network analysis within an evaluative framework. These cases are diverse in their ...
