Professor Jo Roycroft-Malone, Pragmatic Evaluation: Challenges and Opportunities

Wherever we are on the research and evaluation continuum we need to know:

  • WHY – what do we already know from the evidence – how do we build on that
  • WHO – identify & engage with likely users of research at the outset, including lay perspective
  • HOW –appropriate (mix) of methods, consider use of existing data sets, capture context
  • WHAT- use multiple data sources (impact, care, service, cost outcomes), triangulate
  • WHEN – timing, formative/developmental, summative
