Conducting Evaluation with Health Equity in Mind

Conducting Evaluation with Health Equity in Mind
Webinar Date
CE Credits
1 hour

We all want to better understand if our programs, policies, and systems are achieving their intended results. That’s why evaluation is such an important piece of any organization’s work. But what does that evaluation look like in the service of health equity? How is it different and why is that important as we strive to create a more accessible, equitable, and integrated oral health system?

Join CareQuest Institute for a webinar that will provide a thoughtful and useful discussion of the important role evaluation — and evaluators — can play in supporting program staff, providers, policymakers, advocates, and community members in their efforts to advance oral health and health equity. Our expert speakers will provide practical guidance borne out of their decades of experience as evaluators committed to racial and health equity. You’ll leave with a better understanding of how an equity-focused evaluation differs from a traditional evaluation and how it can yield results that advance oral health and health equity. 

Learning Objectives

  • Interpret commonly used terms such as racial equity, health equity, and structural racism and how they inform an evaluation in service of equity.
  • Describe the importance of designing and implementing an evaluation with an intentional focus on equity.
  • Differentiate the ways an evaluation in service of equity differs from the more “traditional” evaluation approach.
  • Explore how evaluation results can inform the continuous improvement of strategies to advance oral health and health equity.
