This two day interactive workshop provides program planners and other health professionals with the knowledge and skills necessary to respond to the latest trend in health promotion and health education: the implementation of “evidence-based” programs.
Decades of federal, state, and private funding have produced programs to address everything from drug abuse prevention to healthy survivorship after cancer. When the programs demonstrate strong evidence of their effectiveness, they can be described as “evidence-based”. The “evidence-based” trend is all about getting these effective programs out into communities, so more people can benefit from the research.
Upon completion of the workshop, participants will be able to:
- Explain what evidence-based health promotion is and why it is important in health promotion program planning.
- Identify and locate reliable evidence-based health promotion resources.
- Learn how evidence-based programs can be applied or adapted to work for your community.
Workshops are customizable to your schedule and budget. Rocky Mountain Prevention Research Center workshops are conducted by professional research scientists experienced in health promotion program planning and evaluation.
