Desired Results
• State Oral Health Programs (SOHPs) have
increased awareness of the importance of
evaluating their partnerships and of engaging
their partners in the evaluation process
• SOHPs have increased awareness of the
importance of matching their partnership
evaluation questions and tools to their
partnership’s stage of development
• SOHPs are familiar with resources available to
them to inform their planning, implementation,
and use of partnership evaluation

Some Preliminary Thoughts
on Partnerships
• What are they?
– Nature of the partnership
– Purpose of the partnership
5
Some Preliminary Thoughts
on Partnerships

6
Some Preliminary Thoughts on
Evaluating Partnerships

partnership?
• How do we approach the design and
implementation of a partnership evaluation?
7
Step 1: Engage Stakeholders
• Identify who should be involved in the
evaluation
• Specify the roles they will play
• Think about how to engage these stakeholders
throughout the evaluation process
