OPRE awarded a contract to NORC at the University of Chicago, in conjunction with Red Star Innovations and the National Indian Health Board, to design and conduct a comprehensive implementation and outcome evaluation of the five Tribal Health Profession Opportunity Grants (HPOG) programs awarded in 2010.
This evaluation provided documentation and lessons about diverse programmatic approaches to health professions training programs serving tribal populations. The evaluation team coordinated and consulted with the Tribal HPOG grantees, program partners, stakeholders, and a committee of experts in the tribal healthcare field to develop a culturally responsive evaluation approach that emphasizes grantee collaboration and benefit. The questions guiding this evaluation examined structures, processes and outcomes of the Tribal HPOG programs.
The point of contact is Amelia Popham.
