  • Daniel L. Stufflebeam
Part of the Evaluation in Education and Human Services book series (EEHS, volume 18)

Abstract

Continuing education has a vital role in assuring that health professionals provide services that are up-to-date and of high quality; and evaluations are needed both to examine critically continuing education and health services, and to provide direction for their improvement. Hence, evaluation has an important role in providing sound health care.
