Evaluating the effectiveness of strategies and alternatives to

  1. 1. Evaluating the Effectiveness ofStrategies and alternatives to attain expected outcomes in the Faith Community PAULETTE GOLDEN MS, RN
  2. 2. PART 1 Introduction
  3. 3. Learning Objectives Compare and contrast health promotion and health education programs Discuss Evaluation of Faith Community Nursing Strategies and alternatives Discuss the need for evaluating Faith community Nursing strategies and alternatives Identify methods of evaluating Faith Community Nursing strategies and alternatives
  4. 4. Basic Terminology Evaluation: “ a process of reflection through which the value of certain actions are assessed. The comparison of an object of interest against a standard of acceptability. Standard of Acceptability: Minimum level of performance, effectiveness, benefits.
  5. 5. Faith Community Nursing : Evaluation Is determining the extent to which a strategy or alternative have been carried out and it’s actual effectiveness. (PROCESS EVALUATION).Whether the strategy being used is effective in meeting the goals and objectives To determine the immediate observable effects the strategy or alternative has had on the faith community’s health risks.(IMPACT EVALUATION) Measurable ultimate goal or outcome of the program measured by reduction in morbidity, mortality, ED visits, signs and symptoms or physiological, spiritual indicators. ( long term) (OUTCOME EVALUATION)
  6. 6. Knowledge Check Process Evaluation: Will help us identify whether the number of identified individuals with signs and symptoms of Hypertension did receive blood pressure screening. Impact Evaluation: Blood pressure screening program resulted in identifying individuals with abnormal blood pressures,behavioral change, willing to check blood pressure, referral to PCP, Outcome Evaluation: Controlled BP, decreased morbidity, and mortality etc.

  16. 16. Faith Community Nurses standard of Practice: Competencies Practice 6 : Evaluation: (refer to pg. 33 of Faith Community Nursing Scope and Standards Practice.) The Faith Community Nurse Will: Disseminates the results to the healthcare consumer and others involved in the care or situation as appropriate, in accordance with state and federal laws and regulations. Participates in assessing and ensuring the responsible and appropriate use of interventions to minimize unwarranted or unwanted treatment and healthcare consumer suffering. Documents the results of the evaluation including results from the faith or spiritual realm.
  17. 17. PART 2Planning andImplementation
  18. 18. Assessment Define the Need: Assessment Wholistic data Collection. Use of appropriate evidence based assessment techniques and instrument. E.g. Faith Community Nursing Health Needs assessment Survey, Focus groups, observation etc. Synthesize data collection to identify patterns and variances and health promotion needs
  19. 19. Diagnosis Derives Diagnoses or issues from the Holistic Assessment Data. Identifies needs and strengths to enhance health and spiritual well being. Prioritize needs and strengths. E.g.. Health education, use of peer/ family support to enhance wellness.
  20. 20. Outcomes Identification (goals setting and objectives) Identifies expected outcomes for a plan individualized to the individual or situation and or tailored to the community. Must be clear and measurable Involves the individual and the faith community in formulating expected outcomes. Derives culturally and spiritually appropriate outcomes from identified needs and diagnoses. Involves a realistic time estimate for attaining expected outcomes. Use Collaboration in developing expected outcomes
  21. 21. Goal and Objectives Goals: Broad statements of what we intended to achieve. Objectives: steps need to achieve our goals. Specific measures we use to determine whether or not we are successful.
  22. 22. Planning Develops a plan that prescribes strategies and alternatives tailored to attain expected outcomes. Integrate evidence based strategies to address the identified diagnosis. Includes strategies for addressing health and wholeness across the life span. Develops an evaluation plan.
  23. 23. PlanningI. When and how to monitor program and conduct process evaluationsII. Determine when to conduct impact evaluationIII. Determine when to conduct outcome evaluation or how soon you want to measure outcomes
  24. 24. Implement The Faith Community nurse implements the identified plan Utilize evidence based strategies to implement interventions . Tailor interventions Culturally sensitive interventions Utilize community and faith community resources and systems to implement the plan
  25. 25. PART 3 EVALUATION: Needs to be considered in the planning stages.
  26. 26. The Faith community nurse evaluates progress toward attainment of goals Conducts a wholistic, systematic ongoing criterion – based evaluation of the outcomes in relation to the structures and process prescribed by the plan and the indicated timeline
  27. 27. Uses ongoing assessment data to revise the diagnoses, the outcomes, the plan and the plan’s implementation as needed. Determine Information needed. Use process evaluation during program implementation , impact evaluation at the end of the program and outcome evaluation at follow up. Develop a data collection DesignI. Record KeepingII. Pre-Post (before and after to measure change, Change= impact.III. Post onlyIV. Observational studies/ auditsV. Controlled experiments (complex and time consuming) Determine the Method of Data CollectionStandard and consistent Format.I. InterviewsII. QuestionnairesIII. Counting number of events that occurredIV. SurveysV. Observation./Audits.
  28. 28. Cont.- Whatever method is chosen, a collection form, such as a questionnaire or checklist will be needed so that data is collected in a standard manner and in a common format.
  29. 29. Evaluates, in partnership with the health care consumer, the effectiveness of the planned strategies in relation to the healthcare consumers responses and attainment of expected outcomes Focus your evaluation Identify the purpose of the evaluation. Determine the kind of evaluation; PROCESS, IMPACT, OUTCOME. Consider what questions needs to be answered by the Evaluation. Develop Data collection forms: Must address either, the process, impact and or outcomes of the planned strategies Directly assess attainment of Expected outcomes. Determine who needs to be assessed to determine effectiveness of the planned strategy
  30. 30. Data Collection and Analysis Collect data. Organize and Analyze Data:I. Statistical Analysis: descriptive statistics/ inferential statistics.(mean, graphs, chi square etc).II. Compare Pre-post Changes ( report measured differences in percentages)III. Identify Patterns and themes in self reports.
  31. 31. Interpretation Interpret changes, patterns and themes as either :A. An Impact: ImmediateB. An outcome: may require additional follow-upc. Process: changes made to program design andimplementation as a result of little or no success inachieving goals and objectives
  32. 32. Conclusion Summarize findings. Present to Faith Community Present to Texas Health Fort Worth-Faith Community Nursing Coordinator. Celebrate achievement.
  33. 33. Putting it all together Tracy R N. administered her quarterly needs assessment survey to the FCN congregation.

Plans method and design of evaluation,.II. Decides on Pre-Post survey questionnaire.III. Goal of the program is adoption of healthy oral behaviors( Objectives:- to enroll at least 80% of the faith community in need of oral health, teach flossing , oral care , distribution of dental and how to acquire supplies and referral, to local dentist, phone reminders.) and to improve oral health of the community.IV.

Teaching and demonstration of oral carec. referral to oral health care providers and resources.VII. Process evaluation during program implementation to assess whether program is achieving goals andobjectives.Uses survey questions to asses, ease of participation, comprehension, usefulness, barriers etc.VIII. Once program is completed,administer same survey questionnaires for post testing.IX. Analyze Data and determines pre-post changes
