PRC faculty launch website for policy implementation evaluation

The Prevention Research Center in St. Louis with guidance from experts at Kaiser Permanente Washington Health Research Institute, Drexel University Dornsife School of Public Health, and Brigham Young University School of Social Work have developed a website that will aid in policy implementation evaluation.

This publicly available website is intended to help policy researchers, evaluators, and implementation science researchers identify and select measures to assess the implementation of health policies in a variety of settings (e.g., hospitals, outpatient clinics, neighborhoods, schools). The team conducted a systematic review of quantitative studies of government-mandated health policy implementation published between January 1995 and April 2019 from countries around the world.

On this site you can interactively search for measures by several attributes and see and download measure overviews that include ratings of the measures’ pragmatic and psychometric properties.

We invite you to explore this web-based compendium of measures of health policy implementation launched in February 2020! To access this website please visit https://www.health-policy-measures.org
