Expanding the Evidence Dialogue: Exploring Research, Community Context & the Experiences of Practitioners to Make Decisions about Prevention

These web conferences kick-off a series that explore CDC’s new tools and online resources for thinking about evidence. We will explore the ways in which research, contextual and experiential evidence can be used to make evidence-based prevention decisions and support successful implementation of prevention strategies. These web conferences will include information on CDC’s “Understanding Evidence” series as well as a new, interactive tool designed to support evidence-based decision-making in the field.

The June 18 web conference will focus on using these tools and concepts for intimate partner violence prevention, and will feature demonstrations and discussions led by intimate partner violence prevention practitioners. The June 20 web conference will focus on using these tools and concepts for sexual violence prevention, and will feature demonstrations and discussions led by sexual violence prevention practitioners.

In September this series will continue as we examine child maltreatment and suicide.
