Health Program Planning and Evaluation: A Practical, Systematic Approach for Community Health, Fifth Edition carefully walks the reader through the process for developing, implementing, and evaluating successful community health promotion programs. Featuring reader-friendly, accessible language and practical tools and concepts, this invaluable resource prepares students and professionals to become not only competent health program planners, but savvy consumers of evaluation reports and prudent users of evaluation consultants.
