CHP Seminar: 23rd October 2018 – The role of evaluation in improving Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health policy and practice

12.30-1.30pm Tuesday 23rd October 2018
Room 410, Level 4, 207 Bouverie Street, Carlton

Presenter: Angeline Ferdinand – Research Fellow in the Evaluation and Implementation Science Unit of the Centre for Health Policy within the Melbourne School of Population and Global Health. 

Effective evaluation practices are essential to ensuring that the policies and programs delivered to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people reflect best practice. The incorporation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander perspectives is imperative to reframe evaluation in order to reflect the priorities and expectations that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities have regarding the policies, programs and services that affect their health.

The presentation will describe the development of a coherent framework that guides the evaluation of policies, programs and services to improve the health of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. The evaluation framework aims to improve the development of policies and programs that incorporate the viewpoints and values of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities, thereby supporting the creation of programs and services that are more relevant to and appropriate for the communities they serve.
