L'évaluation des programmes d'intervention en milieu naturel

Authors :

In the health and social sciences field, recent treatment and service policies advocate interventions. Programs that are directed at social reintegration, aut and maintenance in the individual's normal environment are increasingly frequent. From an evaluative point of view, such programs have constraints with which the evaluator is unfamiliar: difficulty in defining the boundaries of the program (the importance of the envirornment's resources); the multiplicity of the objectives (depending upon the client's situation); the comprehensive nature of the objectives (reintegration and aut); varying lengths of exposure to the program (from crisis intervention to long-term follow-up). This article reiterates the distinction between evaluative research and program evaluation within these new evaluation contexts and suggests a variety of strategies that may be followed. Protocol planning, selection of indicators, and analytical models are discussed.
