The key functions of collaborative logic modeling: Insights from the British Columbia Early Childhood Dental Programs
As part of a government partnership to evaluate British Columbia Early Childhood Dental Programs, the development of a provincial logic model provided an effective tool to integrate regional variations of dental public health programming and also foster collaborative processes. Specifically, logic modeling served the integral functions of providing a program documentation tool, a validity feedback loop, a means to collaborate across different levels of organization, and a forum for cross-health authority decision-making. Our experiences highlight the capacity of logic models to enhance and give structure to collaborative approaches in evaluation.
