Altarum Institute CPHMC Evaluation Report: Cohort #1
The Altarum Institute was NWA’s evaluation partner during the CPHMC project and created this evaluation report of Cohort #1 programs. Altarum Institute’s Center for Food and Nutrition was contracted to conduct an evaluation of Cohort 1 to understand the CPHMC project experience and factors that facilitated or hindered implementation of the project activities and achievement of objectives. The focus of the evaluation is to understand the CPHMC project implementation experience and factors that facilitated or hindered implementation of the project activities and achievement of objectives . A mixed methods evaluation approach was used to explore:
- Whether and how local projects achieved increased collaboration across partners, increased community capacity to implement PSE change, and increased messaging on project activities and PSE changes;
- Whether and how local projects achieved objectives to increase access to environments with healthy food or beverage options and increase opportunities for chronic disease prevention and care; and
- How local projects pursuing common secondary objectives achieved their objectives, including identifying the activities and circumstances that lead to the most successful implementation .
- The primary data sources used for the evaluation include local project CAPs and progress reports, early and late-implementation surveys, qualitative interviews of project leaders, and onsite visits with a subset of 8 local projects .
