The Office for State, Tribal, Local and Territorial Support convened a workgroup in 2010 to focus on the issue of best practices. This workgroup produced a conceptual framework that defines a continuum of practices. Two inter-related components were identified as of primary importance in examining practices - public health impact and the quality of evidence. In this presentation, an overview of the conceptual framework will be provided and discussion initiated.
