This toolkit provides links and downloads to support evaluation of health care initiatives in BC. The first section provides resources to help create an evaluation framework or plan, and subsequent sections relate to the tools and methods that support evaluation.
There are many linkages between Evaluation, Quality Improvement and Research, a family of disciplines that often draw upon the same methodologies and measurement tools. The focus of this toolkit is on Evaluation. For resources on Quality Improvement, refer to the Quality Improvement Toolkit.
This toolkit is not exhaustive, but offers insights to support evaluative thinking and links to resources that assist in assessing which tools may best serve the needs of a particular evaluation, as well as tools freely available online.
