Research and Evaluation

Research and Evaluation

The Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE) assists government agencies and organizations create effective health communication programs that are built on solid research and evaluation.

This information helps agencies refine the design, implementation and overall quality of a communication intervention. To support the research and evaulation process, ORISE specifically collects and analyzes data from appropriate sources, develops protocols, reports findings and recommendations, and provides logistical support.

From assessing human health hazards to testing communications materials using the representative audience, ORISE identifies the health issues, audience perceptions, communication needs and behavioral change strategies.
