From 2020, the first graduates of the university course "Regional Health Coordinator" will be working in 13 Lower Austrian municipalities. The aim of the process and outcome evaluation is to provide data-supported and transparent information for a fundamental decision on the continuation of the course and on possible improvements. The process evaluation answers questions about the anchoring of the graduates (RGK), their activities in the community, and provides information on how the work and the framework conditions of the RGK can be improved. The resulting evaluation provides a final evaluation of the achievement of the set medium-term goals and of the suitability of the intervention (i.e. the use of an RGK in the respective municipality). This project is implemented in cooperation with the “Tut gut!” Gesundheitsvorsorge GmbH with funding from the Lower Austrian Health and Social Fund (NÖGUS).
