Duration: 12.00-16.30

It is important for commissioning decisions to be evidence-based and provide value for money. Thus there is a need to evaluate programmes to find out what works and what doesn’t. Yet it is not always clear why evaluation is needed, what evaluation means, or how to do it well even if resources are limited.  The workshops aim to explore these issues and offer some pointers and examples on how to evaluate programmes within a social prescribing context.   

The workshop does not require previous knowledge of evaluation, or knowledge of study design or statistics.  There is no charge for the workshops.

Audience: Voluntary sector colleagues involved in social prescribing projects in the Midlands.   Places will be offered on a first come-first served basis.

Content: The issues covered in the workshops will include:

  • Why use evidence? Why evaluate?

  • How to use specific social prescribing measures

  • Logic models

  • Complex systems and how to demonstrate impact

  • What resources are available?

    Participants will be expected to bring along examples of the type of programme you’re looking to evaluate, and you will be expected to start creating your logic model in the workshop.
