The Use and Benefits of Evaluation Framework Modules at the Canadian Foundation for Healthcare Improvement: Engaged Capacity Building and Collaborative Program Evaluation Planning
The Canadian Foundation for Healthcare Improvement (CFHI) shares their experience using a collaborative approach to developing evaluation frameworks. CFHI designed a series of four participatory workshop modules where technical and content experts co-design evaluation frameworks. This method leverages the expertise within the evaluation team to build evaluation capacity organization wide. This practice note describes the modules, their delivery and lessons learned. Participants’ feedback on lessons learned suggest that evaluation modules are an effective strategy to strengthen the relationship and communication between evaluation experts and program staff.
