Evaluation of the National External Breast Prostheses Reimbursement Program

2.1 Development of the evaluation framework

Page last updated: 05 November 2010

An evaluation framework was developed to provide a conceptual framework through which to:

  • guide the two reviews
  • summarise the intended outcomes of the program
  • identify key evaluation questions and
  • set out the process for gathering evidence.
A program logic identified a hierarchy of outcomes for the evaluation, which allowed for analysis of a range of factors that contributed to the outcomes at each level. The evaluation assessed the extent to which the program was achieving these outcomes as set out in the evaluation framework.

The evaluation framework was submitted to the department in August 2009 and can be found at Appendix A.
