Introducing the New VetoViolence Tool: Using Essential Elements to Select, Adapt, and Evaluate Violence Prevention Approaches
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Division of Violence Prevention (DVP) is releasing a new VetoViolence online tool to help state and local partners with the implementation of evidence-based prevention approaches. Because each setting for violence prevention strategies is unique, practitioners must make decisions about how to balance delivering prevention approaches as intended with the reality of their local contexts. The Division of Violence Prevention developed this online tool to support the decision-making process. The tool will help explain how evidence-based approaches work and to effectively select, deliver, adapt and evaluate approaches in a community. Join us for an overview and demo of the new tool as well as a discussion about how the tool can be used by practitioners. In addition, participants will hear from their colleagues about how they have used Essential Elements to improve their violence prevention work.
