Outcome evaluation

Systematic process of collecting, analysing and interpreting data to assess and evaluate what outcomes an intervention has achieved, (Chinman M, Imm P, Wandersman A (2004). In other words, outcome evaluation measures how clients and their circumstances change and whether the intervention experience has been a factor in causing this change (WHO/UNDCP/EMCDDA Workbooks on evaluation, 2000).
