Reflection

Consider your unintended outcomes and lessons learned and improve your intervention activities and evaluation methods accordingly

You may find from speaking with the individuals in your intervention that your intervention may be not only influencing the individuals enrolled but also factors in the environment that influence the ability to make lifestyle changes.  You may find that you can improve the impact of your intervention by intentionally addressing these unintended outcomes, for example by encouraging management to create a walking trail.  In addition, while you have heard of these influences you may want to change your evaluation to more intentionally track these changes knowledge, attitudes, behaviors, environments and/or policies.
