Are you interested in Theory of Change and some of the benefits of this approach? Would you like to understand how it relates to evaluation and how to use it in practice?
You can listen to four speakers with expertise in using Theory of Change, explaining more about what it means and how it can be used. These bitesize recordings are from a recent collaborative webinar with the West of England Academy, South West AHSN, Wessex AHSN and Natural England. They give a general introduction to Theory of Change, its benefits and how it differs from logic modelling, to encourage you to take the next step in using Theory of Change. These are available now on the right-hand menu on this page.
These resources are aimed at people working in the NHS and partner organisations in health and social care who are innovating, implementing and evaluating changes in healthcare.
The content of the sessions includes:
An introduction to Theory of Change and understanding the difference between Theory of Change and logic models
The benefits of using Theory of Change and when to do so
Short case studies showing how Theory of Change is used in practice
