Phase 4 Outcome evaluation tools

How can I collect outcome evaluation?

Outcome measures are usually for long-term projects/programs that have been operating on a large scale for longer than two years.

Usually this information is collected prior to the commencement of a project/program ('pre') and on the completion of the project ('post'). For programs, this information can be collected periodically.

Determining the project/program’s outcomes will require a review of the falls injury data and may also involve a cost analysis and conducting surveys to identify other outcomes such as health, quality of life and economic outcomes.

Health and quality of life outcomes

To collect evaluation information for health and quality of life outcomes, use:

Economic outcomes

Economic outcomes may include:

  • health care costs saved by preventing falls and hip fractures
  • project/program costs versus benefits
  • lifetime costs, including impact on victim and carer (paid and unpaid).

The Health Related Quality of Life 15 dimension tool used by Vaapio et al [27] provides a valid way to measure quality-adjusted life years (QALY’s), which is applicable for a cost-effective analysis.
