The CDC's program evaluation process framework is a six-step approach that guides public health practitioners in the evaluation of public health programs. The framework includes engaging stakeholders, describing the program, focusing the evaluation design, gathering credible evidence, justifying conclusions, and ensuring use and sharing of lessons learned. Each step is important in developing a comprehensive and effective program evaluation. This evaluation discusses the application of the six steps of the CDC's program evaluation process framework and how it was utilized in evaluating a hypertension self-management program at a local health department.
