This webinar supports the efforts of the Defense Centers of Excellence for Psychological Health and Traumatic Brain Injury (DCoE) to improve the psychological health and traumatic brain injury (TBI) system of prevention and care. This series is provided to enhance the program evaluation capabilities of attendees. The content is intended primarily for a general audience in order to better inform those who may be unfamiliar with evaluation methods.
This training will provide an overview of how the Health Resources and Services Administration, a federal agency tasked to conduct evaluations of public health programs, was established, how it functions, and lessons learned from the experience. DoD program personnel should be able to compile and suggest ways that evaluation of health programs may be addressed within the Defense Department to improve psychological health and TBI care.
At the conclusion of this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Apply strategies to address common challenges that program staff encounter when seeking to establish an “evaluation culture”
- Explain how health program evaluation is conducted at the Health Resources and Services Administration
- Identify important tools and measures used to track program evaluation accomplishments
- Recognize features and contributions of an evaluation culture to organization values and operations
- Develop the means to build internal evaluation capacity
