Description

This is the second webinar in a two-part series on Understanding Evidence, an interactive web resource developed by CDC’s Division of Violence Prevention that supports public health practitioners in making evidence-informed decisions around violence prevention.

This webinar, intended for youth violence prevention practitioners, provides an overview of Understanding Evidence. 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.
