This is a 2 1/2-day course that will focus on how to integrate evidence described in the scientific literature throughout the life of a program. Participants will learn how to identify and critically evaluate scientific evidence, and determine how best to tailor this to varied practice settings and contexts. Participants will also be introduced to tools for adapting and implementing evidence-based programs in many different areas of public health, with an emphasis on injury prevention. Topics will include assessing physical and social environmental factors that may impact the development, adoption, implementation, and outcomes of interventions; identifying and engaging stakeholders and partners; developing an evidence-informed logic model; and conducting a program evaluability assessment.
