To explore a number of questions in the area of risk communications, the Interagency Task Force on Environmental Cancer and Heart and Lung Disease, held a Workshop on Evaluation and Effective Risk Communication which brought together experts from academia, government agencies, and the private sector. The workshop's objectives were to: (1) Improve understanding of evaluation problems and tasks; (2) Survey principles and methods of evaluation relevant to risk communication; (3) Illustrate the practice of evaluation through examples; (4) Provide guidance for organizations engaged in planning and coordinating the evaluation of risk communication; (5) Derive recommendations for improving risk communication; and to (6) Identify future needs. The workshop proceedings provide an overview of the principles and methods of evaluation and of their application to risk communication programs. The volume includes four papers, five presentations on how to implement evaluation of risk communication, 14 discussions of various practical aspects of such evaluations, and summaries of 16 case study evaluation.
