    Health Evaluation Seminar:

    Putting our Minds Together: Research and Knowledge Management Strategy

    Description:

    The BC Ministry of Health’s Research and Knowledge Management Strategy (the Strategy) acknowledges and values the expertise and contributions of the health research community – past and present – and affirms the Ministry’s commitment to use research evidence in health care policy development, implementation and evaluation. It recognizes that research evidence, increasingly and where appropriate, will be developed by and with researchers in partnership with clinicians, policy makers and patients . The Strategy recognizes that internal structures, people and processes are required to make it easier for Ministry staff to base decisions on the latest body of knowledge and to ensure the right policy related research questions are being asked.

    It sets out a plan to address gaps in programs focused on evidence development in the areas of pharmaceutical and public health services, data access and infrastructure to study and integrate evidence into practice. These gaps were previously identified in response to Recommendation 34 of the Ombudsperson’s report Misfire: The 2012 Ministry of Health Employment Terminations and Related Matters. It also further clarifies how the Ministry will approach research and demonstrate a commitment to evidence-informed processes across all programs.

    Essential Skills Series: Program Evaluation

    The Essential Skills Series is a four-day workshop that equips participants to enter and participate in the evaluation field. Graduates will be able to describe core evaluation concepts and techniques, from the planning process to standards through methods for data collection and analysis. Using case studies and other adult learning methods, participants will develop knowledge and skills in planning and conducting evaluations. While evaluation experience is not a prerequisite, participants would benefit from knowledge in a related field such as program planning/management, or social science research.

    Designed by the Canadian Evaluation Society, the Essential Skills Series covers a full range of evaluation topics at an introductory level.

     Topics Covered:

    • Foundations of evaluation
    • Evaluation objectives and roles
    • Program profiling
    • Evaluation questions
    • Evaluation indicators
    • Common research methods
    • Evaluation design
    • Data collection
    • Data management and analysis
    • Synthesizing evidence
    • Communicating evaluation findings
