Using Logic Models to Develop and Assess Health Education

Fees Instructions for Obtaining Credit

Program Information


When an emerging issue presents itself, educators are often given an immediate call to action to respond and address such problems. In response to our “knee jerk” reactions, programs and interventions are often put together without fully understanding the relationships between the long-term, intermediate, and short-term outcomes we seek and the program resources, activities and outputs we have available to use. Understanding and being able to apply a logic model helps overcome this problematic challenge.

Intended Audience

  • Administrators
  • Physicians and Physician Assistants
  • Psychologists and Counselors
  • Health Educators
  • Dieticians/Nutritionists

Learning Objectives

The participants should be able to:

  1. Explain the benefits of using a logic model to guide the program planning and assessment process.
  2. List the key elements of a logic model.
  3. Describe how to develop and use a logic model when planning and implementing a program.
