The evaluation of intervention is becoming increasingly important in occupational therapy practice and management. Programme logic models aim to assist evaluation by linking programme interventions with intended outcomes. These models include a hierarchy of programme inputs, processes, outputs, outcomes and impacts.

This article reviews the literature regarding programme logic models and uses a case example, the Spinal Outreach Team, to illustrate the utility and limitations of this approach to evaluation. A figure is included which illustrates part of the programme logic model developed for the team. It is concluded that use of a programme logic process by occupational therapists facilitates the development of comprehensive evaluation plans and relevant performance indicators.
