(p.215) Chapter 21 Evaluation
Education in Palliative Care

Heather Campbell

Oxford University Press

The term ‘evaluation’ may be applied to a diversity of situations and activities, ranging from a formal systematic evaluation of a planned intervention to the often unrecognized, informal subjective appraisal of everyday experience. It contributes to informing the individual, the organization, and policy, and may have important consequences within the discipline of health if undertaken well or badly. In a health care and education system driven by a market philosophy, the move towards developing a quality assurance infrastructure has meant that evaluation is possibly the new randomized controlled trial (RCT). This chapter aims to provide a practical guide to undertaking evaluation in health care education, with particular reference to palliative education when appropriate, and to stimulate an interest in the evaluation in health care education in order to fill the evidence gaps.
