Understanding Evidence for Youth Violence Prevention: A Demonstration of CDC’s Interactive Tool to Support Evidence-Based Decision Making


Thursday, July 25, 2013
2:00 – 3:00 PM

This webinar, intended for youth violence prevention practitioners, will provide an overview of Understanding Evidence, a new, interactive web resource developed by CDC’s Division of Violence Prevention that supports public health practitioners in making evidence-informed decisions around violence prevention. The goal of evidence-based decision making is to bring a high standard of research evidence into the decision-making process while taking into account the contextual and experiential factors that influence decisions. In this webinar, youth violence prevention 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 best available research evidence, contextual evidence, and experiential evidence
  4. Identify key stages and characteristics of an evidence-based decision making process

This webinar will also provide real-world scenarios illustrating how youth violence prevention practitioners, coalitions, and evaluators can use the tool to strengthen practice and evaluation of violence prevention strategies.

Featured presenters:

  • Annie Lyles, MSW, Program Manager, Prevention Institute
  • Sally Thigpen, MPA, Health Scientist, National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
  • Natalie Wilkins, PhD, Behavioral Scientist, National Center for Injury Prevention and Control, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
