|Recurring Training (See all)

One event on December 15, 2017 at 1:00pm

Two Fridays, December 8 and 15, 2017    1-3pm EST on both dates •  Online Workshop

Training Description
This highly interactive distance-based training will teach community program planners and health educators about tools for planning and evaluating community health intervention strategies. It will cover how to define evidence-based programs, policies or strategies; and locate, select, and adapt evidence-based programs, policies or other strategies. Practice-based examples primarily include chronic disease or cancer prevention and control, but principles and tools are cross-cutting among other public health topic areas. The workshop defines what evidence is and presents where to find evidence-based strategies through web resources such as the Community Guide to Preventive Services and Research Tested Intervention Programs (RTIPs). It then introduces how to select and adapt interventions. The virtual training also includes case studies and exercises that provide hands-on applications for selecting, adapting, and planning an evidence-based intervention.

The training is a combination of two synchronous sessions and asynchronous activities before and between sessions. Participants agree to attend BOTH online synchronous sessions Dec. 8 and 15 from 1-3pm ET. Participants also agree to complete pre-session and inter-session activities.
