Enhancing Program Performance Using Logic Models [HRA Members Meeting, Virtual, Spring 2022]

This session briefly reviewed the concept of a logic model. It focused on how logic models can be used in practice to develop a new program or modify an existing program, and to create an evaluation plan which can inform ongoing learning and planning to increase program effectiveness. After the into, HRA members walked attendees through (1) an example of a program that  focuses on preventing disease progression & improving quality of life among patients and (2) an example of a program targeted toward evaluation of programs for early career investigators.  Then we broke out into smaller groups to discuss in more detail examples for different types of programs (for example disease-based, translational, and early-career programs), and to share ideas and lessons learned regarding how they have used logic models in their own work.  (Please refer to this page for examples of logic models.)
