POMP To Go Part 1: How to Start Measuring Your Performance?

What is Pomp to Go? POMP stands for Performance Measurement Outcomes Project.

Why is performance measurement important for you?

Performance measurement data is useful for:

  • Monitoring and improving the quality of services;
  • Examining the effect of services on recipients; and
  • Providing empirical evidence on which to base program improvements and funding decisions.

But where do you start? What outcomes are you looking for? How do you do it? What does it cost? What does it matter? Join the National Resource Center on Nutrition and Aging for two free webinars:

Pomp To Go
Part 1: How to Start Measuring Your Performance?

Date: November 12, 2013
Time: 3:30 p.m. to 4:45 p.m. Eastern
(2:30 p.m. Central / 12:30 p.m. Pacific)

This session will provide an overview of the POMP Toolkit, the tools and procedures as well as examples of how states, area agencies and local service providers have used them. For example, how many people do you need to survey, what methods can be used to survey, and can you do this as a part of your current existing data collection system? There will be time to ask questions about how to apply the tools and procedures to your local situation.
