New NN/LM SCR Class: From Problem to Prevention: Evidence-Based Public Health
The NN/LM SCR is pleased to announce a new class:
“From Problem to Prevention: Evidence-Based Public Health”
Curious about evidence-based public health (EBPH) but not sure where to start? This class will explain the basics of evidence-based public health (EBPH) and highlight essentials of the EBPH process such as identifying the problem, forming a question, searching the literature, and evaluating the intervention. The purpose of this class is to provide an introduction to the world of evidence based public health and to give those already familiar with EBPH useful information that can be applied in their practices.
Participants will be able to:
- Define and describe evidence-based public health
- Identify a public health need and formulate an answerable question
- Locate and search applicable literature and resources (such as PubMed, PubMed Health, The Community Toolbox, and others)
- Understand the importance of evaluation and locate helpful resources
This class is face-to-face.
This class will be available for 3 and 4 hours of continuing education credit awarded by the Medical Library Association.
