Understanding Evidence is meant to support critical thinking skills in practitioners to help them make evidence-informed decisions around violence prevention. Specifically, upon completion of Understanding Evidence the learner will be able to: 1. define the three types of evidence involved in evidence based decision-making; 2. identify standards of rigor across the key dimensions that make up the best available research evidence; 3. identify sources of and ways to collect best available research evidence, contextual evidence, and experiential evidence; and 4. identify key stages and characteristics of an evidence based decision-making process.  CEUs are available.
