Scholar Practitioner Project: Part 2 – Evaluation of System Efficiency and Effectiveness

SPP Part 2 builds on SPP Part 1 (from Module 1) where you described a public health system aimed at addressing a public health issue.
Alignment between an identified system gap/deficiency and system-level intervention is one of the key factors behind its future success. Once you fully understand a system in terms of its boundaries, elements, relationships, and functioning roles and responsibilities, and identify the relationship between system elements, you can determine the scope and cost of system evaluation. The goal is to pinpoint the areas of greatest need for improvements, such as system inefficiencies and gaps.
In this SPP Part 2, you will describe the efficiency and effectiveness of the public health system you described in the Module 1 Assignment. You will also propose one strategy that you would use to improve its efficiency and one strategy you would use to improve its effectiveness.
To Prepare
Review the Module Learning Resources.
Review Public Health System: Part 2 – Evaluation of Public Health System Efficiency and Effectiveness.Step #1 Boundary (Part 1)
Step #2 Component/Element (Part 1)
Step #3 Relationship (Part 1)
Step #4 Sub-System (Part 1)
Step #5 System Inefficiency/Gap (Part 2)

Review articles focusing on evaluation of system efficiency and effectiveness.
Review public health system-related documentation, including evaluation reports, annual reports, peer-reviewed articles, etc. You may need to use a general search engine such as Google or Bing, to find information on the open web. If they are not publicly available online (libraries, organization websites, etc.), you may need to contact organizations involved in a system.
Review your work in the Module 1 SPP.
