COURSE DESCRIPTIONUsing Evidence in Practice
Course #305.865.11

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.


  • Public health and safety practitioners, health care professionals, and graduate students interested in evidence-based practice.
  • There are no prerequisites for this course. Practical work experience to draw on during application sessions will be an advantage

*When you register, the course is listed as "Advanced Seminar in Injury Prevention."

What people are saying


Training & Education

For Melissa Spohn, the Summer Institute was the first chance to learn the science behind injury prevention. She rates the experience as one of the best continuing education opportunities she has had as a practicing public health professional. Spohn spreads the injury prevention message by integrating it throughout the health department system, helping to make her state safer.
