Case studies are the most common form of process evaluation. They summarise the HIA process used and include critical reflection to impart some key learnings for improving HIA practice.
A case study should be completed soon after the completion of HIA, as the minimum evaluation activity. Ideally the case study will be concise – aim for around 2–4 pages.
Case studies can also include some indication of whether decision makers perceived the HIA as adding value, and of whether health impacts were considered by decision makers, as well as some monitoring of whether recommendations were adopted, as a minimum level of impact evaluation.
If you have completed or participated in a health impact assessment in New Zealand and would like to have your case study included on this page, then please write it up using the case study guide below, and email to [email protected]
