Viewing Resource: CDC’s Veto Violence: Understanding Evidence

Resource Overview

Understanding Evidence is the first online tool of its kind. This free, online resource offers local practitioners and others working to prevent violence knowledge and resources for using evidence in their decision-making processes. Understanding Evidence is meant to support critical thinking skills in practitioners to help them make evidence-informed decisions around violence prevention.

Specifically, upon completion of Understanding Evidence the learner will be able to:
– define the three types of evidence involved in evidence based decision-making;
– identify standards of rigor across the key dimensions that make up the best available research evidence;
– identify sources of and ways to collect best available research evidence, contextual evidence, and experiential evidence; and
– identify key stages and characteristics of an evidence based decision-making process.

A complimentary resource is CDC’s “Understanding Evidence Tool” Series: Webinar 1 — Injury & Violence Prevention. See resource list below.
