PURPOSE/OBJECTIVES: To describe the use of a logic model methodology in the development, implementation, and evaluation of a regionally based cancer health network. DATA SOURCES: Published articles; online references; published reports from government, state, and private organizations; and regional breast health project results. DATA SYNTHESIS: Through the use of the logic model, the program objectives and outcomes were identified and actualized. CONCLUSIONS: The logic model served as a framework for developing the key components of the program: infrastructure, implementation, and sustainability. Supportive structures, such as the timeline, process evaluation, and outcome evaluation plan, enhanced the use of the logic model by adding clarity to program development and program evaluation. IMPLICATIONS FOR NURSING: Nurses, particularly advanced practice nurses and nurse managers, play a key role in leading program development. A logic model can be used to guide program development, implementation, and evaluation. It serves as an excellent framework for developing a program that integrates service, practice, and research.
