Evaluation of community-academic partnership functioning

June 23, 2015

Community-university partnerships should be assessed by process evaluations to confirm that the principles of CBPR are being followed and to improve the effectiveness of a partnership in achieving intermediate and long-term program objectives. This paper discusses the evaluation of the B Free CEED partnership coalition, describing the methods and findings of the process evaluation. In conclusion, the authors suggest that ongoing partnership evaluation is key in the reassessment of processes and procedures to improve partnership dynamics and cohesion.
