Theory of Change in Health and Social Care

We offer an online short course designed for researchers, service providers, managers and funders who want to learn how to work with stakeholders to make explicit how and why a program is likely to work.

We use an approach called Theory of Change which is increasingly used to develop and evaluate complex health interventions in health and social care.

The course is structured in 4×2 hour group sessions led by Erica Breuer and one 45min individual coaching session to discuss your project.

Discounted rates are available for participants from low- and middle-income countries, First Nations participants, students and multiple people attending from the same organisation*.
