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
