Evaluation for Learning Casebook in Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion

The Casebook on Evaluation for Learning in Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion was produced by the Public Health Agency of Canada’s Chronic Disease Interventions Division. It presents six descriptive narratives of specific examples, one being Minding Our Bodies, that illustrate the successful use of evaluation findings to inform programs and practices in chronic disease prevention and health promotion. The intent of this Casebook is to demonstrate the potential of evaluation for learning and improvement, and to share ideas and inspiration to people interested in evaluation in this way.

Minding Our Bodies was included in this Casebook on Evaluation for Learning to demonstrate how evaluation can be used to help expand, promote, and sustain programs. It also explains how the Minding our Bodies project engaged external evaluators as partners with internal evaluators for improved program learning.

The Casebook’s objectives are to:

1. Increase awareness and understanding of the value of evaluation for learning

2. Highlight different strategies and approaches that enhance the use of evaluation findings

3. Illustrate lessons learned from a diversity of contexts

4. Demonstrate the impact of chronic disease prevention and health promotion in informing policy, program or practice changes

5. Facilitate ongoing knowledge translation including uptake and adoption of chronic disease prevention and health promotion evaluation by connecting audiences to the work of others and to each other
