"From Evidence to Practice" is a self-paced, web-based course, that teaches the evidence-based public health decision-making process by plunging learners into a realistic situation. In the course, learners are asked to understand and employ the evidence-based framework to research and develop an intervention strategy that addresses disparities in birth outcomes in a local community. Learners make a series of choices about finding data to accurately describe the problem, evaluate interventions based on evidence and applicability to the community, and defend their choices. The course outcome — securing funding for interventions chosen — depends on sound evidence-based decision-making. As learners work through their assigned tasks in the course, feedback alerts them to how well they have understood the material presented. Upon finishing the course, they may print out a certificate of completion. "From Evidence to Practice" is unique in its approach to web-based content delivery. Please let us know what you think by filling out the evaluation form at the end of the course. We look forward to your comments and suggestions for enhancements.
