Gauging Alignments: An Ethnographically Informed Method for Process Evaluation in a Community-based Intervention

Community-based projects feature multidimensional interventions and interactions within unpredictable contexts. Process evaluations can shed light on variability in outcomes across sites and the reasons why some project outcomes fall short of expectations. The authors present an ethnographically informed study of the interactive project components in a pilot community-based falls prevention project that was implemented in 4 communities across Canada.
