National Obesity Observatory Standard Evaluation Framework

National Obesity Observatory Standard Evaluation Framework

The National Obesity Observatory (NOO) is interested in raising the standards of evaluation practice in the UK. Their preliminary research showed that many obesity prevention projects were either not evaluated, or were evaluated poorly, using inconsistent methods and measures.

Nick Cavill worked with NOO staff to produce the Standard Evaluation Framework for weight management interventions.  This gives introductory guidance on evaluation methods, and sets out standard criteria for the evaluation of weight management interventions. The document has become the most downloaded on the NOO website, and is becoming the foundation for commissioning of obesity interventions across the country. 

The approach is being developed into separate evaluation frameworks for physical activity and diet interventions, to be published in 2012.
