Hi there. It sounds like Easy Evaluation is a framework that will allow health professionals to conduct robust program evaluations. I, therefore, am curious if it has some weaknesses or limitations?

Your instinct is correct. It is true that Easy Evaluation has been successfully taught to and used by health professionals and has proved suitable in many circumstances. Still, some limitations of Easy Evaluation should also be noted. For example, evaluation approaches using logic models have been critiqued on the grounds they are not always suitable for the evaluation of complex programs. While this criticism is valid in particular circumstances, the approach offered here is entirely suitable for the simpler projects in which health professionals starting out in program evaluation are most likely to be involved. After all, this framework is one way to approach program evaluation, but there are a plethora of alternative approaches to program evaluation.

Could you please give us a clue about how service users apply for the occupational therapy service of SRACP? As we want to evaluate the convenience for applicants to get access to this service.

Hi, I realized that it seems the concept “outcome” is different from the term “output”. Taking the grandparent training project as an example, what is the “outcome’ referable?
