Using Logic Models for Planning and Evaluation

Don’t miss our current giveaway. Get all of the details here to enter.

I know that logic models don’t get everyone’s heart pounding, but you know I do love a good evaluation session. Last week in South Carolina, I spent a very enjoyable day with many of the state’s forensic nurses, and we briefly discussed the issue of outcomes, and what those look like for our programs.

One of the best tools in planning and evaluating program objectives is the logic model, but they can feel cumbersome and overwhelming at times. This session, sponsored by the CDC and the Safe States Alliance, aims to simplify logic models and make them feel more user-friendly. It will be held September 21st at 2pm ET. From the site:

Thoroughly understanding one’s program is central to program planning and evaluation. Logic models can and should be a helpful tool, but too often, dogmatic or overly complicated approaches to developing logic models undermine their utility.

This webinar will present a straightforward approach to creating logic models, recapturing their added value as a tool. Course content will define the basic components of logic models, provide some insights on when to include or exclude these terms from models, and apply teaching points to some simple cases. It will also demonstrate how a decent, yet simple logic model helps guide key questions in planning and evaluation.
