Event Summary

Jul 30, 2024
10:00 am - 12:15 pm

CEUs: Prevention, CHES
2 Hours
Domains: P1- Planning and Evaluation

The planning process is an essential part of any prevention program’s success. In fact, ineffective program planning – or a complete lack of planning – can eliminate an organization’s ability to provide high quality services, reach measurable outcomes, and ultimately, know whether or not their program is having a benefit to its recipients. Logic models are one tool in the prevention professional’s toolbox for program planning. However, many prevention professionals are confused by logic model terminology and the overall logic model framework, and different logic models utilize contradicting terminology, adding unnecessary confusion. This session demystifies logic models by clarifying logic model terminology, the appropriate use of logic models, and how to utilize logic models to give prevention professionals a means for evaluating programmatic effectiveness. 

Learning Objectives:

  1. Define a theory of change process and logic model terminology.
  2. Articulate the benefits of using a logic model framework for prevention program planning and evaluations.
  3. Utilize a logic model framework to enhance prevention program planning and evaluations.
