Quality Framework for the Healthy Workers Initiative
The program documentation must contain details of the evidence that underpins a program (development, implementation, evaluation).
Basing a program on contemporary, reliable information (evidence based or best available industry endorsed practice) increases the potential effectiveness of the intervention, and decreases the risk of interventions that are ineffective or even harmful.
When reviewing the evidence consider:
- How well the study/ies was conducted – were the sample size, interventions, and measures appropriate?
- How relevant is the evidence to this target group?
- How relevant is the evidence to this setting?
- How credible are the findings? Are the findings supported by other studies, the literature?
References to evidence should be described in the program documentation.
