Mental Health-Focused Methods and Tools to Support Evidence-Informed Decision Making. Year Developed: 2016. Source: National Collaborating Centre for Methods and Tools. Presenter(s): Susan Snelling, PhD. Type: Webinar Archive. Level: Advanced Introductory. Length: 90 minutes. presentation slides

Annotation: This webinar on evidence-informed decision-making (EIDM) draws on The National Collaborating Centre for Methods and Tools (NCCMT)'s seven-step process, with reference to methods and tools for each step that are specific to mental health practice. The National Collaborating Centre for Methods and Tools (NCCMT) is one of six National Collaborating Centres for Public Health in Canada with a collective mandate to strengthen public health in the country.

Building Evidence to Improve the Structure, Governance and Funding of Local Public Health Through Practice-Based Research Networks . Year Developed: 2015. Source: n.a.. Presenter(s): Justeen Hyde and Jennifer Kertanis. Type: Webcast. Level: Intermediate Advanced. Length: 50 minutes. TRAIN Link

Annotation: Are there better ways to organize, finance and deliver local public health services? Join us for a presentation of “real world” studies of local health departments in states of Connecticut and Massachusetts, two states with highly decentralized public health systems, that explore just that question. Learn about how practice-based research networks (PBRNs) are bringing together researchers and practitioners across the nation to identify strategies that work to maximize population health impact, cost effectiveness and health equity of public health systems.

Learning Objectives: • Describe the primary objectives of Public Health Systems and Services Research. • List at least three reasons why local health departments should be interested in the work of PBRNs. • Recognize how findings from CT and MA PBRN studies could be used to impact. • Recall how local health departments can learn more about PBRN research or participate in PBRN studies.

Breaking Down Infant Mortality: Achieving Measureable Impact through the CoIIN Approach. Year Developed: 2015. Source: Association of Maternal and Child Health Programs. Presenter(s): Elaine Fitzgerald, DrPH, MIA; Ellen Pliska, MHS, CPH; Vanessa Lee, MPH. Type: Video Conference. Level: Introductory. Length: 60 minutes.

Annotation: This workshop presented a framework developed by the National Institute for Children’s Health Quality (NICHQ) for MCH leaders to use in determining their strategic priorities for reducing infant mortality. The Collaborative Improvement and Innovation Network (CoIIN) to Reduce Infant Mortality is a multiyear, national program to save babies’ lives through quality improvement, collaborative learning and collaborative innovation. The CoIIN framework is a tool that enables states, MCH officials and all stakeholders to break down the complex, multifaceted issue of infant mortality into practical, achievable steps for improvement – first, by organizing actions by periods of engagement and then by specific strategies.

Adapting Evidence-Based Interventions for New Populations and Settings. Year Developed: 2015. Source: Columbia University Mailman School of Public Health; Region 2 Public Health Training Center. Presenter(s): Rachel C. Shelton, ScD, MPH. Type: Webcast. Level: Introductory Intermediate Advanced. Length: 60 minutes. TRAIN.org link

Annotation: Dissemination and implementation sciences are defined as the systematic study of how a specific set of activities and designated strategies are used to successfully adopt and integrate an evidence-based public health intervention (EBI) within specific settings, and are comprised of four steps: 1) exploration, 2) adoption/preparation, 3) implementation, and 4) sustainment. The overall goal is to reduce the gap between science and practice/policy. Implementation research speaks more to processes and factors associated with successful integration of EBIs within a particular setting, while dissemination research focuses on the processes and factors that lead to widespread adoption and use of EBIs. EBIs are shaped by research evidence, resources, population, and context, and are popularly used due to their demonstrated effectiveness, cost-effectiveness, and fast process. In order to successfully select an EBI, interventionists must Identify community needs, assess organizational capacity, and search program registries to select a program. When preparing for implementation, and EBI can either be adopted as is or adapted to fit the local conditions. Adaptation is an important part of the process in order to enhance engagement, reach the audience, address disparities, increase fit and relevance, and reinforce the message. Adaptations can be either surface or deep structure, and the use of either or both should be a conscious, well thought out decision. Surface adaptations use visual and auditory cues for culturally appropriate messages, while deep structure adaptations involves cultural sensitivity and comprehensive understanding of ethnic group’s core cultural values, norms, and stressors (economic, social, environmental) affecting health behaviors. Models for guiding adaptation include Card, ADAPT-ITT, and MAP.
