Real-world evaluation: Ten key principles for evaluating complex health and social interventions” for the fifth year in February 2018:

Expected Outcomes

By the end of this programme participants will be able to:

  • Recognise differences between simple, complicated and complex interventions
  • Identify and prioritise areas of complexity
  • Describe ten key principles for evaluating complex interventions
  • Discuss the strengths and limitations of various approaches for evaluating complex interventions
  • Plan the application of methods for theory-driven evaluation
  • Develop and test programme theories
  • Appreciate the key issues for data analysis and presentation of findings


We are introducing the short course “Experiential Research Approaches (ERA):  Qualitative Methods using Observation, Description and Interpretation” for the first time in November 2017:

In addition to these, we run a Master module in spring semester 2018 for the fourth year: HAR6062: Evaluation Methods for Complex Settings, which is linked to the short course: Real-world evaluation. If you have students who are considering complex evaluation methods in their research/evaluation projects, it would be great to direct them to the module.
