  • Participatory Quality Development– Ongoing process of improvement– Participation of target groups and front line workers in decision-making regarding quality– Identifying and expanding local knowledge– Quality measures which are: – Customized – Feasible – Useful – Participatory – Reliable
  • Practice-Based Evidence– As a complement to evidenced-based practice– Evidence generated from the structures and the logic of the practical work– Role of science is supportive, not privileged– Local evidence in focus: – What works at a specific point in time, in a specific place, in a specific context
  • Local Knowledge/ Local Theory– The knowledge of local actors – Most often implicit– Local experts play a central role– On the basis of this knowledge, forming local explanations (local theories) – Making knowledge explicit – Structuring local knowledge– By testing local theories, the local knowledge is expanded – What works at a specific point in time, in a specific place, in a specific context
  • Collaboration Target Group Prevention & Health Promotion Project/ Institution Funder
  • Participation– Decision-making power at all stages – Including defining the problem– Emphasis on target groups and front line staff – They have the local knowledge – Their learning is most important– Not either/or, but a developmental process – Dependent on local characteristics
