This online course will introduce students to the main approaches and methods available for the evaluation of health and social care policy and practice. The module will prepare students to assess the effectiveness of the interventions they implement, the programmes and services they deliver and the policies they plan or seek to enact using both qualitative and quantitative methods.
Students will be taught frameworks to support their decision-making concerning the appropriate criteria by which to measure effectiveness in different situations. Students will be able to distinguish between interventions, services and policies that aim for the achievement of goals, and outcomes and interventions that are goal free. Students will therefore be equipped to evaluate structures, processes and outcomes and - more importantly - be able to identify where best to evaluate structures, processes or outcomes. The module will prepare students to identify and demonstrate the benefit of interventions to individual users, organisations or whole populations.
This course is delivered online with flexible, optional group and one-to-one tutorials that can be attended face-to-face, by phone or by Skype. Consequently, students do not have to come into the University of Nottingham to take this module.
