Review the Healthcare Program/Policy Evaluation Analysis
Program/policy evaluation is a valuable tool that can help strengthen the quality of programs/policies and
improve outcomes for the populations they serve. Program/policy evaluation answers basic questions
about program/policy effectiveness. It involves collecting and analyzing information about program/policy
activities, characteristics, and outcomes. This information can be used to ultimately improve program
services or policy initiatives.
Nurses can play a very important role assessing program/policy evaluation for the same reasons that they
can be so important to program/policy design. Nurses bring expertise and patient advocacy that can add
significant insight and impact. In this Assignment, you will practice applying this expertise and insight by
selecting an existing healthcare program or policy evaluation and reflecting on the criteria used to
measure the effectiveness of the program/policy.
