Standard Evaluation Framework (SEP) for Weight Management Interventions
The aim of the Standard Evaluation Framework (SEF) is to support high quality, consistent evaluation of weight management interventions in order to increase the evidence base.
The Standard Evaluation Framework (SEF) provides introductory guidance on the principles of evaluation, and lists ‘essential’ and ‘desirable’ criteria. Essential criteria are presented as the minimum recommended data for evaluating a weight management intervention. Desirable criteria are additional data that would enhance the evaluation. The supporting guidance describes why particular criteria have been categorised as essential or desirable, and gives further information on collecting data.
The Standard Evaluation Framework (SEF) will be essential reading to those commissioning, running or evaluating weight management interventions. For further information please go to:-
The National Obesity Observatory (NOO) will be evaluating the usefulness and impact of the Standard Evaluation Framework (SEF) and this will be informed by both quantitative and qualitative data, including the experiences of people who have used the guidance. If you would like to be involved in this evaluation, or if you have any feedback, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
