Abstract
OBJECTIVES: Goal attainment scaling (GAS) is an individual approach for measuring changes in clinical interventions. We adopted GAS as a tool for community-based health promotion to support practitioners in formulating and monitoring their intervention goals. METHODS: Eleven regional health promotion networks were invited to set project-specific goals, following Kiresuk and Sherman's rules for goal setting. Follow-up interviews on goal attainment were conducted twenty-one months later. In addition, each network was interviewed on usage and applicability. RESULTS: In total, 35 goals were set. The expected outcomes were reached for the majority of projects. CONCLUSIONS: GAS has been proven to be a useful instrument for quality assurance as it helps with setting and monitoring goals and sub-goals.
