Upcoming Webinar – CDC’s Interactive Tool on How to Make Evidence-Based Decisions

In the last decade, “evidence-based decision making” has been described as a best practice across multiple contexts and settings. The process of how to actually make evidence-based decisions is less clear. The CDC’s Division of Violence Prevention has developed an interactive web resource developed that supports practitioners in making evidence-informed decisions.The American Evaluation Association is hosting a webinar that will describe this resource in more depth.  More specifically, practitioners will learn how to 1) define the multiple forms of evidence involved in evidence-based decision making, 2) identify standards of rigor for best available research evidence, 3) Identify sources of and ways to collect each type of evidence, and 4) Identify key stages and characteristics of an evidence-based decision making process. The webinar will take place on June 27, 2013 at 2pm EST. To register for this webinar, click here.
