Developing Evidence-Based Programs (WISH Module 4). Year Developed: 2012. Source: North Carolina Institute for Public Health. Presenter(s): n.a.. Type: Online Course. Level: Introductory. Length: 20 minutes.

Annotation: This training provides an overview of evidence-based practices and policies in the context of women's health and how they drive program improvements and lead to better health outcomes. It is the fourth training in a six-part series designed for those public health and/or mental health professionals who oversee health programs and services for adolescent girls and women of reproductive age. It is strongly recommended that users complete the modules in the series in sequence. To see a complete listing for the series please go to the Training Series section of this site. The Women's Integrated Systems for Health (WISH) Online Training Series focuses on key components of an integrated approach to promoting the health of women during late adolescence and throughout the child-bearing years. This training series arose from the need for practice-based tools that advance multi-disciplinary partnership, community engagement and using evidence-based approaches grounded in proven theoretical models. Women's Integrated Systems for Health (WISH) was a training grant funded by the Maternal and Child Health Bureau and the Bureau of Health Professions in the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) in 2010-13 with a partnership between the NC Institute for Public Health and the Department of Maternal and Child Health at the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health and the UNC Center for Maternal and Infant Health at the UNC School of Medicine. The project focused on promoting integrative community approaches to optimize mental and physical health among adolescents and women of reproductive age.

Learning Objectives: • Define evidence-based practices and policies and potential impact on public health programs. • Define levels of evidence. • Describe two sources of evidence-based programs. • Describe the role of policy in improving integration of care. • Identify mechanisms for monitoring and evaluating programs and policies.

From Evidence to Practice: Using a Systematic Approach to Address Disparities in Birth Outcomes. Year Developed: n.a.. Source: New York - New Jersey Public Health Training Center. Presenter(s): n.a.. Type: Online Course. Level: Intermediate Advanced. Length: 180 minutes.

Annotation: "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.
