Evaluating participation: a guide and toolkit for health and social care practitioners

Tool for supporting the evaluation of public involvement and participation in health services. A partner to the Participation Toolkit, it is a stand-alone guide for assessing the way in which a participation project has been undertaken (process) and the results of that activity (outcomes). It does not set out to be a definitive guide to evaluation, but aims to provide resources, references and tools to help people develop their own approach to evaluation.

The guide will:

  • introduce some evaluation essentials
  • help people to develop a suitable framework for evaluating participation
  • provide a set of flexible tools to adapt and use for your own evaluation projects, and
  • signpost information and materials for further investigation.
