Putting Public Health Evidence In Action Training Curriculum
The CPCRN’s cross-center Capacity Building, Technical Assistance and Training (CBTAT) Workgroup created this interactive training curriculum to support community program planners and health educators in developing skills in using evidence-based approaches and learning about new tools for planning and evaluating community health interventions. Tools are provided for planning and delivering a “Putting Public Health Evidence in Action” training workshop with a Facilitator’s Guide and support materials. The training is comprised of seven modules with interactive activities and is intended for public health practitioners, state and local health department staff, health educators, healthcare providers, community advocates, academic/research faculty and staff, faith-based leaders, and other members of community-based organizations.
Research to Reality
Research to Reality (R2R) is an online community of practice that links cancer control practitioners and researchers and provides opportunities for discussion, learning, and enhanced collaboration on moving research into practice. R2R was developed in response to Cancer Control P.L.A.N.E.T. users’ need to have a better, timelier way to engage their colleagues and share experiences. Developed and supported by the National Cancer Institute (NCI), R2R is both an information source and a forum where members can connect and collaborate with other public health professionals to ask question, discuss ideas and solutions, share useful resources and tools, and participate in cyber-seminars and other events.
