2. Aims of the Evaluation
The aim of the evaluation was to assess how the refocused school nursing role worked in both D&G and P&K, in order to provide learning and guidance to support SN training and any further roll out and evaluation of the service.
The objectives were:
- to assess the implementation of the refocused school nursing role in the early adopter sites and identify the key facilitators and barriers to implementation.
- to explore whether the assumed mechanisms of action for the new school nurse role and wider team appear to be operating as planned, thus indicating likely future effectiveness on outcomes.
- to assess the degree to which both implementation and potential effectiveness of the school nursing role may be dependent on unique local contexts, and make recommendations for tailoring it to help inform school nursing training in future.
