1. Health Unit A: Modifying an existing program

Health Unit A plans programs in a well-defined cycle, including annual operational planning which considers:

  • New priorities
  • Ongoing core programming
  • Community needs
  • Opportunities for impact

Overall priorities are determined, and logic models and operational plans are revised.

During this year’s operational planning, it becomes clear there are many more interventions being discussed than resources can cover. The program manager asks staff how intervention activities might be prioritized and the implementation staged over time. Staff use items in section three of this toolkit to guide their thinking.

2. Health Unit B: A New Program

Health Unit B has received supplementary funding to launch a program to prevent obesity in children. While there are various program activities aimed at preventing obesity, a coordinated cross-program initiative is a new approach for this unit. The cross-program working group decides to use this tool kit as they develop the program. The four modules guide decision-making and documentation at each step in planning, implementing and evaluating the initiative.
