Eval11 Session 778: Hear me! Integrating feedback from distinct perspectives for an evaluation of a statewide child care provider training on nutrition and physical activity in Delaware 

11-11-2011 16:00

Nemours Health and Prevention Services, with support from a USDA Team Nutrition grant, developed an innovative training for Delaware childcare providers on the changing obesity-related regulations for childcare settings. A multi-component, mixed-methods evaluation was used to first create and subsequently improve the training. Input from stakeholders was solicited in multiple ways and resulting changes were made to the training and companion resources along the way. Evaluation methods included a) focus groups with providers to assess needs and gain feedback on training materials and design; b) surveys that assessed satisfaction with the training, provider knowledge on regulations and whether practice changes occurred; and c) additional focus groups with parents to understand their needs related to nutrition and physical activity. This session will address the ways in which this project integrated feedback from different perspectives in real time, maximizing the potential for the training to have an impact on Delaware children.
