It includes a critical examination of the characteristics, sources, and quality of the nature of evidence and presents several different evaluation models, including those that focus on economic evaluation. The evaluation of organizations, systems, and standards for practice is covered in detail, along with the evaluation of populations and health care teams, particularly interdisciplinary collaborative health teams. Also addressed is the process for translating outcomes from evaluation into health care policy, as well as opportunities for advocacy and leadership. Numerous examples and case studies illustrate concepts.
