Understanding Evidence screen shotUnderstanding Evidence is a new, interactive web resource developed by CDC’s Division of Violence Prevention that supports public health practitioners in making evidence-informed decisions around violence prevention. 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.

This web conference will provide an overview of the Understanding Evidence tool and will be focused sexual and intimate partner violence prevention. The web conference will also provide real-world scenarios illustrating how practitioners, coalitions, and evaluators can use the tool to strengthen practice and evaluation of prevention strategies.
