Assignment: Assessing a Healthcare Program/Policy Evaluation

Week 10 Assignment

Program/policy evaluation is a valuable tool that can help strengthen the quality of
programs/policies and improve outcomes for the populations they serve.
Program/policy evaluation answers basic questions about program/policy
effectiveness. It involves collecting and analyzing information about
program/policy activities, characteristics, and outcomes. This information can
be used to ultimately improve program services or policy initiatives.

Nurses can play a very
important role assessing program/policy evaluation for the same reasons that
they can be so important to program/policy design. Nurses bring expertise and
patient advocacy that can add significant insight and impact. In this
Assignment, you will practice applying this expertise and insight by selecting
an existing healthcare program or policy evaluation and reflecting on the
criteria used to measure the effectiveness of the program/policy.

To Prepare:

Review the Healthcare Program/Policy Evaluation Analysis Template provided in the Resources.

Select an existing healthcare program or policy evaluation or choose one of interest to you and
get approval to use it from your Instructor.

Review the healthcare program or policy evaluation and reflect on the criteria used to measure the
effectiveness of the program or policy described.

The Assignment: (2–3
pages)

Based on the program or policy evaluation you selected, complete the Healthcare Program/Policy
Evaluation Analysis Template. Be sure to address the following:

Describe the healthcare program or policy outcomes.

How was the success of
the program or policy measured?

How many people were
reached by the program or policy selected?

How much of an impact
was realized with the program or policy selected?

At what point in
program implementation was the program or policy evaluation conducted?

What data was used to
conduct the program or policy evaluation?

What specific
information on unintended consequences was identified?

What stakeholders were
identified in the evaluation of the program or policy? Who would benefit most
from the results and reporting of the program or policy evaluation? Be specific
and provide examples.

Did the program or policy meet the original intent and objectives? Why or why not?

Would you recommend implementing this program or policy in your place of work? Why or why not?

Identify at least two ways that you, as a nurse advocate, could become involved in evaluating a
