Identifying Evidence-Based Practices: A Guide to Searching the Literature - Live Learning Session, June 27



Live Learning Session: 12:00-1:00pm Mountain Time

Online module pre-work will be available June 6th



Primary Competency

Public Health Sciences Skills

As someone committed to improving the health of your community, or a particular population group, you want to know which interventions are proven to work. But how do you know?

For this live learning session, participants will complete the Identifying Evidence-Based Practices self-paced, online module and then engage in a discussion and applied-learning activity with a subject matter expert, using bidirectional video.

The online module and live learning session will lead participants through the process used in systematic reviews and identifies key practice-relevant resources that summarize the literature on effective public health interventions. Learners will explore different sources of evidence, focusing on systematic reviews as a tool to efficiently identify public health interventions that are proven to be effective. Also included is guidance for finding and reviewing other sources of evidence when systematic reviews are outdated, or are not available for a particular topic area or population.

This module and live learning session provides an in-depth introduction to key online resources to guide the selection of evidence-based interventions including The Community Guide, PH Partners, What Works for Health, and others.

The live learning session simulates an in-person training environment by having all participants on screen via video. This allows for an engaging and interactive learning environment where you get to know the instructor and the other participants. Participation via video is required. We use the Zoom platform, which is free and easy. You can join via a computer with a webcam, a laptop, tablet, or your smartphone. We’re here to help - we’ll provide instructions and our session support team is available to walk you through setup if you’re new to this!
