Evaluation & the Health Professions

Evaluation & the Health Professions


eISSN: 15523918 | ISSN: 01632787 | Current volume: 47 | Current issue: 2 Frequency: Quarterly
Evaluation & the Health Professions provides health-related professionals with state-of-the-art methodological, measurement, and statistical protocols or tools for conceptualizing the etiology of health promotion and problems, and developing, implementing, and evaluating health programs, teaching and training services, and products that pertain to a myriad of health dimensions. It is designed to provide a forum for keeping health professionals abreast of the latest conceptual and technological advances in evaluation research methods as well as provide the results of important evaluations. Furthermore, EHP is designed to provide a forum for debate of timely evaluation and conceptual issues in health research and evaluation.

Multidisciplinary Perspective

For well over 45 years, EHP has offered a broad, multidisciplinary approach to the conduct of rigorous original research that focuses on the results of evaluation studies. It is increasingly recognized as a premiere conceptual and methodological resource in the health professions as well as a source for innovative process and outcome evaluations that potentially affect patients’ quality of life. Articles often influence, not only the design of health care research and evaluations, but also the delivery of health care programs themselves. 

Translational Research Focus

Most recently EHP has dedicated itself to issues related to translation research, which is defined as (1) the process of applying discoveries generated during research in the laboratory to the development of trials in humans and (2) enhancing the adoption of these results into health care practices and products that potentially improve health within the community.

Current and Comprehensive

Recent articles discussing topics of vital importance to researchers and evaluators:
  • A multi-method intervention to improve adherence to clinical practice guidelines
  • Evaluating the relevance and external validity of translational research
  • Acupuncture as an expectancy effect
  • Relationship between resident workload and inpatient satisfaction
  • Assessment of physicians’ clinical skills
  • Determining the statistical significance of HRQOL changes in individual patients
  • History of research synthesis
  • Development of the Cochrane centralized register of controlled clinical trials
State-of-the-Art Special Issues 

EHP averages at least one special issue per year with invited articles by the leading researchers and thinkers in the most pressing research and methodological arenas. View our Special Collection archive here.

This journal is a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).

Evaluation & the Health Professions is a peer-reviewed journal that provides health-related professionals with state-of-the-art methodological, measurement, and statistical protocols or tools for conceptualizing the etiology of health promotion and problems, and developing, implementing, and evaluating health programs, teaching and training services, and products that pertain to a myriad of health dimensions. It is designed to provide a forum for keeping health professionals abreast of the latest technological advances in evaluation research methods as well as provide the results of important evaluations. Furthermore, EHP is designed to provide a forum for debate of timely evaluation and conceptual issues in health research and evaluation more broadly of importance to the health professions. Research manuscripts that don’t pertain directly or indirectly to health professional behavior (e.g., biomedical work, drug studies), are mere replications of work published in other locations, involve only a basic examination of the internal structure of an assessment, or do not have research implications, fall outside the scope of the journal.
