Action Framework: Step 6
After the intervention has been running for some time, you
need to collect data as per your evaluation design. Data should be
analysed, interpreted and documented in an appropriate format to
ensure the best possible uptake. This stage is an opportunity to
share and discuss the findings and consider the sustainability and
scalability of the intervention. Let’s have a look at the task list:
1. Conduct an evaluation – Monitoring will show whether
your intervention has been working as intended. Use the monitoring
and evaluation system established in Step 4 to collect and analyse data.
2. Report, share and discuss findings - Use an
appropriate format for your findings, and be sure to support each
conclusion with well-sourced and verifiable data. Data-based
evidence is a critical component of credibility. Present your
findings and craft a compelling story – This will strengthen your case.
3. Decide to sustain, scale up or stop - The evaluation
findings should inform decisions about the future of your project or
intervention. Consider if the intervention is working as intended and
decide if it should be scaled up or replicated elsewhere.
That concludes our UDAF unpacked series – Remember all of the
resources and tools are available – and shareable - here.
Even if your intervention is up and running, the Urban
Diabetes Action Framework is packed with useful templates
and resources which could help lift your programme.
