Updated evaluation strategy to support sharing of best practice and learning

The new care  models programme published the National Evaluation Strategy in May 2016.

The strategy sets out our overall approach to both national and local evaluation of the new care model vanguards.

Evaluation of the vanguards is at the heart of the national new care models programme, providing the robust results and learning that can be rapidly disseminated across the NHS and elsewhere to enable duplication of successful models.

The strategy also outlines a partnership approach to evaluation.  It includes analysis of key outcomes of the new care models, as well as provision of support for local evaluation enabling vanguards to evaluate their progress against the measures that are most important to them.
