as able to benefit from program evaluation: Direct service interventions Community mobilization efforts Research initiatives Advocacy work Training programs For this discussion, I have selected a method of Training Programs as an evaluation method. A typical program includes a newsletter distributed three times per year to update private providers on new developments and changes in policy, and provide a brief education on various immunization topics; immunization trainings held around the state conducted by teams of state program staff and physician educators on general immunization topics and the immunization registry; a Provider Tool Kit on how to increase immunization rates in their practice; training of nursing staff in local health departments who then conduct immunization presentations in individual private provider clinics; and presentations on immunization topics by physician peer educators at physician grand rounds and state conferences. Discuss the pros and cons of this method or design. A disadvantage of Training Programs is it cannot be applied to all health situations (McCabe, 2009). A second disadvantage is societal benefits and costs are often not taken into account. The utility that society may attaches to health may be different from the characteristics of the person experiencing the health issue (McCabe, 2009). References: Dyal WW.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
