Provider Education Workgroup Evaluation 

Provider Education

Formative Evaluation & Outcome Evaluation


The Provider Education Workgroup improves the “education and training of healthcare professionals who prescribe, dispense, and otherwise provide care for those receiving prescription medications with the potential for misuse, abuse, or diversion.” The workgroup offers more than 30 trainings in online and in-person formats.

Evaluation Approach

Evaluators will gather information on the reach and effectiveness of trainings for medical providers in Colorado. The evaluation focuses primarily on understanding changes in safe prescribing practices resulting, in part, from participation in trainings. Evaluators will use a combination of administrative data, surveys, and interviews to answer key evaluation questions.
