Representing well a case-management theory of change for an elder abuse program– implications for construct validity
Much attention is being given to using program theory as the foundation for making valid inferences in evaluation. However, case management programs offer unique challenges to valid representation. This research proposes a model for representing program theory validly in a case management program, the Elder Abuse Prevention and Response Services.
