Public Health Discussion Case Assignment
For this discussion, you will analyze a case study in public health from the textbook, Master of Public Health Competencies: A Case Study Approach.
Please review the following case study from this text: Chapter 11: Evaluating a Multi-Site Campus-Based Sexual Assault Prevention Intervention
This case study was based on real public health initiatives; therefore, your engagement in this discussion will help you hone workforce-related skills for public health practice.
For your initial post, please address all of the following questions:
Appraisal of Evaluation Methodologies Formative Evaluation: What would need to be measured before implementation to ensure this public health effort is feasible, appropriate, or acceptable?
How would you gather this information?
Summative Evaluation: Why would it be important to address summative evaluation (the degree to which actual changes occurred as a result of the program) as opposed to limiting assessment to process evaluation?
What would you measure with summative evaluation?
Process Evaluation: Why might policymakers and funders be more concerned with summative evaluation outcomes than with process-based outcomes?
How does this change your approach to process evaluation?
What would you measure with process evaluation?
Outcome Evaluation: What types of outcomes might have more value in health promotion as well as in reducing the burden of sexual assault and intimate-partner violence in a large, urban, commuter university setting?
What would you measure with outcome evaluation?
Impact Evaluation: How does impact evaluation inform the management of the intervention? What would you measure with impact evaluation?
