Description:

CDC’s “Understanding Evidence Tool” webinar series is a two-part webinar series that provides an overview of Understanding Evidence, a new, interactive web resource developed by CDC’s Division of Violence Prevention that supports public health practitioners in making evidence-informed decisions around violence prevention.  Each webinar in this series takes a different approach to demonstrating the Understanding Evidence tool and its application. The webinars are Webinar 1: Understanding Evidence for Injury and Violence Prevention Programs, and Webinar 2: Understanding Evidence for Youth Violence Prevention.

 

This is Webinar 2 in the series. It is intended for youth violence prevention practitioners and provides an overview of Understanding Evidence, a new, interactive web resource developed by CDC’s Division of Violence Prevention that supports public health practitioners in making evidence-informed decisions around violence prevention. The goal of evidence-based decision making is to bring a high standard of research evidence into the decision-making process while taking into account the contextual and experiential factors that influence decisions.

In this webinar, youth violence prevention practitioners will learn how to:

* Define the multiple forms of evidence involved in evidence-based decision making

* Identify standards of rigor for best available research evidence

* Identify sources of and ways to collect best available research evidence, contextual evidence, and experiential evidence

* Identify key stages and characteristics of an evidence-based decision making process

This webinar also provides real-world scenarios illustrating how youth violence prevention practitioners, coalitions, and evaluators can use the tool to strengthen practice and evaluation of violence prevention strategies.
Continuing education credits are offered for this training for Safe States members. These include credits for individuals who are Certified Health Education Specialist (CHES) and Certified in Public Health (CPH)
