National Area Health Education Center Program: External Assessment Design. Final Report.
Duggar, Benjamin; And Others
The AHEC (Area Health Education Center) program is designed to demonstrate the ways in which a university health science center (often including a medical school) can improve the supply, distribution, quality, efficiency, and utilization of health care personnel in medically underserved areas through establishment of satellite educational facilities. Evaluation design efforts included description of the eleven existing AHEC projects, and addressed five issues: Identification and specification of objectives; assessment of alternative approaches and selection of alternative; development of operational definitions for selected indicators of program operation and output; outlining of appropriate measurement methodologies and instruments for data collection; and outlining of projected data analysis plan.
