The Falls Free® Logic Model is the foundation of the Evaluation Guidelines. It illustrates the causal assumptions that link coalition activities to long-term, measurable outcomes. State coalition leaders can choose to focus their efforts using the logic model as a guide. The Logic Model articulates the relationship between the resources used to operate the coalition, the activities the coalition conducts, and the outcomes and impact the coalition will achieve.  By demonstrating the progression, state coalitions can help stakeholders understand how their work leads to desired outcomes. The long-term outcomes of reduced falls, fall-related injury, and death rates will not be achieved overnight. Short-term and mid-term objectives are meaningful and can be used to facilitate midcourse strategy assessments and to show progress toward long-term outcomes.

In the Falls Free® Logic Model, typical coalition resources, activities, products, audiences, and short, medium, and long term outcomes are listed. These terms are defined as the following:

  • Resources:  Resources may include funding, existing organizations, potential collaborating partners, existing organizational or interpersonal networks, staff and volunteers, time, facilities, equipments, supplies, and other assets or supports.
  • Activities: The processes, techniques, tools, events, technology, and actions of the planned programs.
  • Products: The direct results of program activities.
  • Reach: The audiences we want to affect or influence.
  • Outcomes: The specific changes in attitudes, behaviors, knowledge, skills, status, or level of functioning expected to result from activities.
