Tools of the Trade: Putting Public Health Evidence in Action

Tuesday, February 24, 2015 -
2:00pm to 3:00pm
EST

This year, we celebrate the 5th Anniversary of the NCI Research to Reality community of practice. R2R was developed to engage researchers and practitioners in an ongoing discussion around moving cancer control research into practice.  R2R will only be partially successful if we fail to build capacity for others to join this essential conversation. We are delighted therefore that our February cyber-seminar will introduce a newly released curriculum designed to train community program planners and health educators to locate, select, adapt and implement evidence-based strategies into practice. 

Putting Public Health Evidence in Action in Health is an interactive seven-module training curriculum developed by the Cancer Prevention and Control Research Network (CPCRN).  CPCRN is a network of eight centers that receive funding from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the National Cancer Institute.  The training curriculum is intended for public health practitioners, state and local health department staff, health educators, healthcare providers, community advocates, academic/research faculty and staff, faith-based leaders, and other members of community-based organizations. 

Drs. Jennifer Leeman and Cam Escoffery will introduce the curriculum and how you might adapt and use it to train your staff, students, and community partners.  Following their presentations, we will host a robust, interactive discussion with you about your experiences building the capacity of others to move evidence-based programs and policies into practice. 

Learning Objectives

At the end of the cyber-seminar, participants will be able to:

  • Identify evidence-based approaches and locate resources and use methods for collecting community assessment data
  • Understand the balance between fidelity and adaptation and the adaptation process
  • Know how to use different evaluation methods for evidence-based programs, policies or other strategies and understand the challenges involved
