Take your evidence-based decision-making skills to the next level! Through this course, you’ll learn to develop a concise written statement of a public or community health problem, issue, or policy—and how to measure it. Explore various data sources, practice methods for prioritizing program and policy options, and learn about planning and logic models. Finally, you’ll learn how to conduct an economic evaluation and concepts of measurement validity and reliability.
The goal of this 10-week course is to help professionals in public health, mental health, public policy, and global health think critically about issues of health equity, and how you can utilize evidence-based decision-making as a tool to advance equity in your communities.
We use a flipped-classroom approach, so you’ll work through course content independently and then connect with a small cohort of peers weekly for live learning sessions that provide an opportunity to ask questions, share your knowledge, and learn from others.
Each session will include a facilitated discussion among class participants related to that week’s topic. A subject matter expert will lead the discussion, engage participants, and answer questions. This is a unique opportunity to connect concepts of evidence-based decision-making in your daily work! Below is the schedule for our live sessions.
Successful completion of this course requires your participation in these sessions by video using a webcam or built-in camera on your device. Contact us if you need assistance accessing a webcam.
Each week, you must complete assigned online learning activities that include reading and watching videos. There will also be a short assignment to complete in preparation for each live learning session.
Look for an email from us two weeks before your first live session with instructions on how to access the course online. If you don’t see an email (don’t forget to check your spam folder), email firstname.lastname@example.org. Make sure you sign in before your first live session to complete the required activities and ensure you know how to connect with your camera.
We strive to host inclusive and accessible events that enable all individuals, including those with disabilities to engage fully. Please let us know of any accommodations that will assist your full participation.
