Health Impact Assessment

Oxford University Press

This chapter first distinguishes evaluation of a decision from evaluation of the HIA which informed it. It then discusses the meaning of effectiveness pointing out that there are ways other than influencing the decision in which and HIA can be effective. Evaluation has to consider the usefulness of the HIA to decision makers, the accuracy of its predictions and its effect on participation. For all of these there can be outcome evaluation or process evaluation. Case study and reflection are important aids to improving the quality of HIA. Checklists are a good method of quality assurance and peer review can also be useful.

Keywords:   evaluation, effectiveness of HIA, outcome, process, use to decision makers, validating predictions, participation, case study, quality checklists
