Few genomics education programs are rigorously evaluated, which limits the evidence for the most effective strategies in different settings. Evaluation frameworks support rigorous approaches to evaluation, with clear outcomes and measures. Our framework supports genomics educators to develop an evaluation program that measures outcomes related to genomics workforce development and to identify factors that may influence implementation of genomic medicine.
Australian Genomics drew on existing literature and the program logic model for genomics education to draft an evaluation framework relevant to genomics education.
The framework is currently being reviewed and refined. The publication will also include potential evaluation questions and measures relevant to genomics education.
