It is possible to filter among the different categories of events by checking the boxes below the calendar. For our regular members it is also possible (when logged in) to suggest we add events to the calendar.

RRISIQ will accept to broadcast an external event provided that it is accessible to the community at large and that at least one member of the network is among the speakers.

Embedding process evaluation in randomized controlled trials of complex interventions

January 30, 2019 12:00 - 13:30 | RRISIQ event
Conference presented by:

Susan Jack
Associate Professor
McMaster University
School of Nursing

In this presentation, Dr Jack will address a process evaluation that answers questions related to “how an intervention is delivered” provides valuable contextual information to help interpret findings from randomized controlled trials measuring the effectiveness of these same interventions. In this presentation, a mixed methods framework for embedding process evaluations within trials of complex interventions will be described, along with discussing issues related to process evaluation design and reporting. This discussion will draw on experiences from the British Columbia Healthy Connections scientific evaluation that includes a randomized controlled trial to evaluate the effectiveness of Nurse-Family Partnership compared to existing services to prevent child injury and improve a range of maternal and infant health outcomes, along with a longitudinal embedded process evaluation being conducted to explore how this nurse home visitation is implemented within 5 unique health authorities and to elucidate the contextual factors that influence public health nurses’ and organizations’ capacity to implement this intervention with fidelity.
