Understanding Evidence is a free online resource designed to educate practitioners and community advocates about the value of making evidence-informed decisions around violence prevention. Evidence based decision-making is a process for making decisions about a program, practice, or policy that is grounded in best available research and informed by experiential evidence from the field and contextual evidence.
While this tool is primarily designed for public health specialists, anyone committed to preventing violence in their communities will find the information useful. You will learn about the three types of evidence involved in decision-making, look at different data collection methodologies, and identify standards of practice in research evidence and factors that can influence decisions.
So, whether you are a CDC grantee, researcher, program evaluator, decision maker, or just someone who wants to know more about understanding evidence, this site is for you!
