OUR WORK

Projects

Econometrica’s Learning & Diffusion team is developing a four-part web-based training course on antibiotic stewardship for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Office of Antibiotic Stewardship. Econometrica’s team of project managers, subject matter experts, instructional designers, curriculum developers, e-Learning developers, and graphic designers continue working together to develop content using the Analysis, Design, Development, Implementation, and Evaluation (ADDIE) methodology and adult learning principles. Our efforts support CDC’s goal of combating antibiotic resistance and improving healthcare quality and patient safety. The first part of the course can be viewed here.

Econometrica is conducting an evaluation of HUD’s RAD program to examine what new opportunities RAD creates for public housing authorities (PHAs) to improve public housing physical conditions, how RAD helps PHAs preserve those units over the long term, and the impact of these changes on tenants. Econometrica is collecting quantitative and qualitative data from primary and secondary sources and analyzing those data. In addition, Econometrica is conducting surveys to capture information on the experiences of the individuals and organizations implementing the program.
