Evidence-Based Public Health Training Series. Year Developed: 2017. Source: Northwest Center for Public Health Practice. Presenter(s): n.a.. Type: Interactive Modules. Level: Advanced. Length: 555 minutes.

Annotation: Today's public health professionals must be able to strategically consider research results, political interests, and community requests when leading program and policy work. The evidence-based public health framework is an effective model for this type of decision-making. The Evidence-Based Public Health Training Series consists of nine modules that cover core concepts, such as defining public health issues, conducting community assessments, prioritizing options, and evaluating program and policy impacts. You may take each of the modules individually and receive a certificate for each one. If you choose to complete all nine modules, you will also receive a certificate for the series as a whole. Each module consists of several videos, followed by a short quiz. You must watch the videos and take the quiz in order to pass the module. To aid in your understanding, optional activities and questions for reflection or discussion are also included with each module. You may discuss these questions in a forum with other module participants or with peers or colleagues, or you may reflect on them individually.

Special Instructions: Must create a PH Learn Link account to view.

Evidence Insight Video Series. Year Developed: 2017. Source: Mathematica Policy Research. Presenter(s): Ann Person, Phil Killewald, Alex Resch, Mariel Finucane, Lauren Vollmer. Type: Webinar Series. Level: Introductory Intermediate Advanced. Length: 5 videos, self paced.

Annotation: In a world where data are proliferating as never before, more policymakers are relying on research evidence to serve the public good. What are the research methods that offer the most useful data to policymakers in this rapidly changing landscape? Find out in #EvidenceInsight, a new video series from Mathematica Policy Research. Randomized controlled trials (RCTs) are considered the gold standard of rigorous research design. For decades, Mathematica researchers have designed, executed, and replicated large-scale RCTs in many different policy and program areas. Today, greater availability of high quality administrative data—along with an abundance of emerging technologies—have increased demand for faster program evaluation with equally robust results. This demand, coupled with shrinking resources, has motivated researchers to consider new methods that are more efficient and less expensive than RCTs, but just as reliable. This video series is designed to help policymakers who need access to strong evidence. After a brief video describing the series, additional videos address these topics: Bayesian Methods: A Faster, Probabilistic Approach to Research Design. Adaptive Randomization: A Fresh Perspective on Traditional Research Design. Rapid-Cycle Evaluation: Determining What Works in Less Time. Predictive Analytics: Transforming Decision Making in Three Steps.
