National Obesity Observatory [NHS] – Standard evaluation frameworks

“NOO has now produced three Standard Evaluation Frameworks (SEFs):

SEF for weight management interventions (published March 2009)
SEF for physical activity interventions (published September 2012)
SEF for dietary interventions (published September 2012)

The aim of the Standard Evaluation Frameworks (SEF) is to support high quality, consistent evaluation of weight management, diet and physical activity interventions in order to increase the evidence base.

The SEFs provide introductory guidance on the principles of evaluation, and list ‘essential’ and ‘desirable’ criteria. Essential criteria are presented as the minimum recommended data for evaluating a weight management intervention. Desirable criteria are additional data that would enhance the evaluation. Supporting guidance describes why particular criteria have been categorised as essential or desirable, and provides further information on collecting data. The SEFs are essential reading to those commissioning, running or evaluating weight management, diet or physical activity interventions.”
