How well are you doing?
The coalition Governenment is proposing changes to the delivery of healthcare which will increase the practice of service commissioning.
Health professionals will increasingly be required to demonstrate the value and purpose of their roles and services; evaluation is a method of supporting this.
Surveys and questionnaires are a commonly used method for the evaluation of health services, but are often not used effectively and therefore do not produce valid or useful results upon which decisions can be made. This study day addresses that gap.
Course Leaders: Hannah Spring and Natalie Noret
Length of course: One day study day
