The Safe States Alliance and the South by Southwest Injury Prevention Network present the “Evidence Webinar Series” – a three-part series that provides practitioners with principles, case studies, and resources to help them identify, understand, and utilize the evidence necessary to implement effective injury and violence prevention programs. The three webinars in this series are Part 1: Finding the Evidence; Part 2: Implementing Evidence-Based Programs; and Part 3: When Your Program Lacks an Evidence Base.


This webinar is Part 3 of the series. Oftentimes a community may face an injury or violence issue for which there is not yet an evidence-based program to address it. This presentation will discuss how to go about addressing a new issues and evaluating your work. During Part 3, participants will:

* Learn about the elements of a public health approach to prevention

* Hear examples of programs that were designed by communities to address an issue where there was not yet an evidence-base

* Gain an understanding of the importance of evaluation in program design to determine if the program is achieving its goals, objectives, and outcomes.
