The World Health Organization Surgical Safety Checklist has increased patient safety and even saved lives. Checklists have been used in aviation since the 1930s with immeasurable contributions to flight safety. Checklists are used in a wide array of professions to minimize error and enhance quality. What can checklists do for your evaluation practice? In this 45-minute webinar, Lori Wingate will provide an overview of the form and function of checklists, highlight evaluation checklists developed by some of the field’s leading practitioners, and share basic information on how to use these checklists to improve practice. Goldie MacDonald, from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, will share her experience with checklist development and use in the evaluation of public health programs. Webinar participants will learn how to access and use a range of checklists designed to enhance day-to-day practice.
This session is an extended version of the American Evaluation Association coffee break webinar (bit.ly/aea-webinars) held on April 23, 2015. The same great content—and more—is being made available to the public via EvaluATE’s free webinar series.
