3265.0 Practice-Based Evidence: Evaluation of Health Education and Health Promotion Programs

Monday, October 31, 2011: 12:30 PM
The call for more practice-based evidence has resonated with public health practitioners and researchers. Practice-based evidence is especially important for areas where strategy or intervention evidence is lacking or of insufficient detail. So how do we in public health education and health promotion proceed? The presenters on this panel will provide you with - examples of concrete methods for identifying practices worthy of evaluating, - a set of tools for reviewing research- and practice-based evidence for readiness for dissemination, - a proposed set of methods for sharing practice-based adaptations to evidence-based interventions, and - insight to the role practice-based evidence plays in complementing research-evidence, such as from the Community Preventive Services Task Force. The result, we hope, is the beginning of a provocatively woven fabric of the contribution of practice-based evidence to improved health of the public.
Session Objectives: 1. Discuss two different processes for identifying and evaluating practice-based evidence for promising initiatives. 2. Describe a set of methods for sharing practice-based evidence related to implementation in different contexts. 3. Explain the role of practice-based evidence in the recommendations of the Community Prevention Services Task Force.
