The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have released a new guidance document, Using Essential Elements to Select, Adapt, and Evaluate Violence Prevention Approaches, to assist prevention practitioners in making decisions about balancing the delivery of violence prevention approaches as intended with the reality of their local contexts. The guidance explores how evidence-based approaches to preventing violence work, understanding the essential elements of a prevention approach, and how this knowledge can be used to effectively select, deliver, adapt and evaluate approaches. This web conference will present major concepts in this guidance and highlight practical tools that practitioners can use to estimate the essential elements of a prevention approach and track and evaluate adaptations in their own settings.
