RACS has embarked on the preparation of a comprehensive evaluation framework for the Building Respect Improving Patient Safety Initiative.

Using the project's planned outcomes as a base, key evaluation questions and appropriate indicators and data sources will be identified, resulting in development of a data collection plan.

Evaluation professionals, Thread Consulting, have been engaged to develop the framework, which will provide a means of assessing the reach and impact of the Building Respect Initiative over the medium and long term (at the five and 10 year mark).
