Tools for Implementing an Evidence-Based Approach in Public Health Practice

The June 2012 release of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) Preventing Chronic Disease:  Public Health Research, Practice and Policy contains a peer-reviewed article from the Prevention Services Division's own Barbara Gabella titled "Tools for Implementing an Evidence-Based Approach in Public Health Practice."  The article focuses on the use of proven strategies to improve population health, including easily accessible and time-efficient online resources in the following topic areas: training and planning tools, US health surveillance, policy tracking and surveillance, systematic reviews and evidence-based guidelines, economic evaluation, and gray literature and how these tools can assist in decision-making.  You can contact Barbara Gabella at barbara.gabella@state.co.us for more about the study and the article.
