Abstract: Process evaluation is “a study which aims to understand the functioning of an intervention by examining implementation, mechanisms of impact, and contextual factors” (MRC Population Health Science Research Network 2014). This presentation described why it is necessary to conduct process evaluations alongside randomised controlled trials of complex interventions, and reviewed published guidelines on how to plan, design and conduct process evaluations. Examples of several process evaluation studies were discussed, with an emphasis on the development of a process evaluation of Sinovuyo Teen, a parenting support program in rural Eastern Cape, South Africa.

About the speaker: Yulia Shenderovich is a PhD researcher at Cambridge University. Her previous experience includes advising on monitoring and evaluation and carrying out systematic reviews in the areas of youth violence, education and HIV/AIDS.

This seminar is part of the 3ie-LIDC Seminar Series 'What works in International Development'.
