Eval11 Session 958: Process Evaluation Methodologies for Estimating the Chances of Program Failure

In this paper/presentation we seek to increase the likelihood of successfully implementing programs by proposing simple, cost-effective process evaluation methodologies for estimating the chances of program failure. The process evaluation methodologies we propose, methodologies that include 'voice of the crowd' and 'future search,' have been adopted widely in decision making situations ranging from strategic planning to the mutual learning and acquisition of values. But despite their affinity to empowerment, collaborative and participatory evaluation, these methods have not been widely utilized either in formative or process assessments. We demonstrate the application and value of these methodologies through a case study of a hospital's ambulatory care program

CTSA Evaluation is No Piece of Cake: Evaluators' Recipes for Learning about Clinical and Translational Science Award Institutes

Evaluators entering the world of Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) institutes are often struck by the complexity of evaluating these institutions. Each CTSA encompasses several cores, or research service providers (i.e., drug discovery and development, biomedical informatics, or community engagement), with drastically different focuses and, therefore, indicators of progress. Annually, evaluators are challenged with developing integrated reports for the National Institute of Health using data collected in the diverse CTSA cores. This poster presentation will first display how two new-to-CTSA evaluators tackled the task of understanding CTSAs
