Abstract: 

The BC Ministry of Health’s 2005 Core Functions Framework responds to the need to enhance public health infrastructure in the region. The Core Functions initiative provides a good opportunity to monitor and evaluate an implementation process. This evaluation is important as it addresses encountered challenges, so that action can ensue to mitigate these challenges, thereby ensuring satisfaction for those involved. The qualitative evaluation conduc ted for the Core Public Health Services Review at Vancouver Coastal Health (VCH) is outlined, findings described, and recommendations presented to improve the implementation process of the Framework. Change management theory is used to support these recommendations. This information can be used to improve and sustain public health interventions that serve to benefit the population’s overall health and well being.
