Abstract [en]

In recent years the knowledge and the practices in the field of evaluation have been accumulated and different evaluation models are being discussed in the literature. There are a variety of evaluation models which describe how to conduct a particular type of evaluation. As a human service organization, psychiatry has a particular organizational structure. Seeking to enhance understanding of evaluation models in psychiatry is a need to be covered. To understand the evaluation activity in psychiatry and to question a suitable evaluation model are the aims of this study. The method of this study is a theoretical analysis. By probing into analysing of some examples of evaluation in Swedish psychiatry, a number of core criteria are highlighted. As the results, it comes up that the evaluation activity in psychiatry seems to be “top-down” which is informative and traditional way. Despite evaluation tradition had been highly recognised in psychiatry, the evaluation model is still a question in the field. Based on implications, it emerges three variables in the context of evaluation in psychiatry; facts, values and participation of different actors. By containing these three variables in its context, stakeholder evaluation model seem to be suitable model in psychiatry. This article enables a theoretical ground for the appearance of evaluation in psychiatry and gives implications in regard to stakeholder model as an appropriate evaluation model in psychiatry for future studies.
