The challenge: evaluate nine projects working to shift alcohol culture within different target groups. Funded by VicHealth’s Alcohol Culture Change Initiative (ACCI), the projects are delivered by different kinds of organisations. Our approach: using the Initiative’s underlying Alcohol Cultures Framework, we developed an overarching evaluation framework that highlights the similarities between the projects. This has supported development of a minimum set of common impact indicators to be used across all of the projects, and recommended questions for project communications and events. How is it going? This presentation will discuss the feasibility and usefulness of this approach to managing complexity.
