A GPS for Prevention: Creating & Using Logic Models for Program Planning and Evaluation
Prevention Peer Network
Logic models are a useful way to visually portray the roadmap of your prevention efforts. In the process of creating a logic model you clarify where you are going, what you need to get there, and what you expect to accomplish along the way. Additionally a logic model can help you focus your implementation and evaluation planning and help you make mid-course adjustments.
This action-oriented webinar will familiarize you with the purpose and use of logic models as well as provide an opportunity to begin building one for your current or anticipated program or prevention effort. Additionally, we will discuss ways to map out the multiple strategies being carried out by your organization’s comprehensive prevention programming.
To get the most out of this webinar we encourage entire prevention teams to participate, being prepared to identify and map the outcomes you hope to achieve with your prevention efforts. If you have a Scope of Work, Theory of Change, or any other item that helps guide your efforts, we recommend you have it handy. The goal is to walk away from the webinar with a starting place! Perhaps even a fully functional logic model!
