2 ABSTRACT BACKGROUND Practice setting Problem(s) Intervention Theory RESULTS Summary of outcome graphs Summary of goal attainment data METHODS Clients Measures Design Data collection Analysis DISCUSSION Level of support for intervention Alternative explanations of results Implications for clinical practice

3 BACKGROUND: Practice Setting Description of agency – [Public or private agency] – [Services provided] – [Service area] – [Location of office(s)] Description of program/division/section – [Population(s) served] – [Service(s) provided]

4 BACKGROUND: Problem(s) [Primary problem facing agency/prog clients] [Secondary problem facing agency/prog clients] [Tertiary problem facing agency/prog clients] - - - - - ―[Types] ―[Prevalence] ―[Causes] ―[Common treatment/intervention approaches]

5 BACKGROUND: Intervention [Intervention/advanced practice method being evaluated] – [Voluntary vs. involuntary] – [Individ vs. family vs. group] – [Single session/crisis intervention vs. multiple session] – [At agency vs. in-home/community] Key elements – [Element #1] – [Element #2] – [Etc.]

6 Figure 1. (Local) Intervention Theory Increased [faculty] social support Increased well-being Key intervention elements 1.Express interest 2.Validate feelings 3.Share thoughts, suggestions 4.Encourage contact with field liaison 5.Improve teaching, class as-needed Decreased stress 1-5 rating of overall well- being

7 BACKGROUND: Theory of Change [Theory(ies) supporting intervention] [Brief description] [Explanation of why/how theory key elements of intervention]

8 Figure 2. C-CEP/Logic Model Elements Decreased psychological stress Operational measure? Increased sexual satisfaction Operational measure? Financial insolvency New job HH income >300/wk Increased well- being of marriage relationship Operational measure? Problem GoalObjective 2 Objective 1 Intermediate OutcomesLong-term Outcome Condition Targets Assumptions Inputs, Activities & Outputs Propositions & Theories Intervention-related activities [Specify theory(ies)] [Specify intervention]

9 METHODS: Clients [Client/case #1] [Client/case #2] [Etc.] - - - - - ―Alias/initials ―Demographics ―Presenting problem(s)

10 METHODS: Measures [Outcomes: outcome domains/concepts and quantifiable measures to be graphed on y-axis] – [Incl. measurement scale – e.g., 1-5, 0-30, yes/no] [Intervention: unit of time on x-axis] [Goal attainment (*) measure(s): overall quantitative rating and/or qualitative explanation]

11 METHODS: Design [Specify letters – e.g., “(A)B*”] [Describe, define each letter (one per bullet) such that average helping professional, client, family member etc. may understand]

12 METHODS: Data Collection [Overall description of logistical details for collecting outcome measures data to be graphed and goal attainment data] – [Data source(s)] – [Collection/compilation time points (e.g., at beginning or end of each day, week in field] – [Instrument(s): print log, Excel spreadsheet] – [Data entry, updating of Excel file in Carmen…for review and monitoring by instructor]

13 METHODS: Analysis [Analysis method(s) for client outcomes/graph data (e.g., Trend Analysis for all + Non- overlapping for those able to collect daily data] [Confirmatory reporting of goal attainment data to help interpret graphed outcomes data]

14 Figure 3. Client Outcomes Excellent Good Average Fair Poor

15 RESULTS: Graphed Outcomes Data [“Story” told by trend lines (and non- overlapping, if applicable) from Results graphs] – [Possibly one bulleted summary per outcome]

16 RESULTS: Goal Attainment Data [Quantitative rating(s) (e.g., 1-5)] – [Overall…and possibly specific areas/topics/issues] [Qualitative “themes”, reasons, etc. which emerged from explanations of ratings provided by clients while discussing graphed outcomes vs. current life experience]

17 DISCUSSION: Support for Intervention [Overall level of support for intervention based on results (e.g., none, weak, medium, strong) [Provision of specific facts/results supporting overall level of support claim made above]

18 DISCUSSION: Alternative Explanations [1 st alternative explanation of observed results] [2 nd alternative explanation] [3 rd alternative explanation] - - - - - ―[Naturally occurring “regression to mean”, or normal, after time of crisis, episode, etc.] ―[Invalid, possibly over simplistic, measures] ―[Insufficient time and/or intensity of intervention to observe change within 10-week eval period] ―[Insufficient or unavail. baseline data to compare]

19 DISCUSSION: Implications for Practice [Lessons learned and/or questions raised for your own professional practice from these practice evaluation data]
