Evaluation Study Design for the Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program.
The Administration for Community Living (ACL) contracted with NORC to develop an evaluation study design to better understand and assess the effectiveness of the Long-Term Care Ombudsman Program (LTCOP). NORC was tasked with building the evidence base on LTCOPs in order to develop recommendations for a rigorous and comprehensive study design that investigates program efficiency and program effectiveness at multiple levels, including the resident/family, facility, local/state/program, and federal levels. The effort was led by NORC with extensive input from the ACL and a Technical Advisory Group (TAG) that was created to guide and inform the overall research objectives and design of the project. Key tasks involved the development of a family of logic models and a set of overarching research questions as well as the identification of data collection tools and sources. More
