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 1 in the series. It is intended for state/territorial injury and violence prevention programs, 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, state/territorial injury and violence prevention program staff will learn how to:

  1. Define the multiple forms of evidence involved in evidence-based decision making
  2. Identify standards of rigor for best available research evidence
  3. Identify sources of and ways to collect best available research evidence, contextual evidence, and experiential evidence
  4. Identify key stages and characteristics of an evidence-based decision making process

 

This webinar also provides real-world scenarios illustrating how state injury and violence prevention practitioners, coalitions, and evaluators can use the tool to strengthen practice and evaluation of violence prevention strategies.
