Course handbook


Planning and evaluation are essential to quality health policy, research and practice. This course takes a practical approach, from the selection of a strategy through to planning, implementation and dissemination. Evaluation is viewed as integral to the quality and accountability of each of these steps, not as a process that is undertaken separately.
