Module 5: Evaluation Considerations for Programs to Improve Access for Rural Residents with Disabilities
Evaluation is a tool for measuring a program's impact and providing information on where to make improvements. Careful evaluation of programs designed to improve access to care for rural residents with disabilities is critical to ensuring that the programs are achieving their goal.
Just as there are many ways that communities might reduce barriers for individuals with disabilities, there are various strategies that could be used to evaluate programs. This module will provide methods and considerations for conducting evaluations of programs designed to improve access to care for people with disabilities.
