HCS 549 WEEK 2
Program Evaluation Paper Part I Directions:
Choose a health care delivery or educational program, be it existing or one in the proposal stage, in your workplace or community. Examples include a smoking cessation or diabetic education program. You use this program throughout the course to plan a program evaluation. IF YOU CHOOSE A NATIONAL PROGRAM, YOUR Program Evaluation Paper Part I MUST BE ABOUT A LOCAL APPLICATION. For example, the American Diabetes Association (APA) sponsors training programs all across the country. LOCAL people and agencies, e.g. hospitals, host these classes, using information and training aids provided by the APA. DO YOUR PROGRAM EVALUATION OF THE LOCAL PROGRAM, NOT THE NATIONAL APA.
Write a 1,050- to 1,400-word Program Evaluation Paper Part I paper to begin your program evaluation plan.
Describe the program and explain why you selected it.
Identify program goals and objectives, if available. If the program does not have existing goals and objectives, determine what you think they should be and explain why. Include a description of the role of goals and objectives in the evaluation process.
Define the steps and phases of program planning and evaluation in relation to your chosen program. If the steps and phases of program planning were not followed for your program, make recommendations as to how they should have been incorporated and provide your rationale.
Identify stakeholders and analyze their role and inclusion in the evaluation process.
Explain how data related to the program is or will be tracked.
