New CDC Resource for Violence Prevention

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released Using Essential Elements to Select, Adapt, and Evaluate Violence Prevention Approaches to help state and local partners with the implementation of evidence-based prevention approaches.

Because each setting for violence prevention strategies is unique, practitioners must make decisions about how to balance delivering prevention approaches as intended with the reality of their local context. The Division of Violence Prevention developed this guidance document to support a step of the implementation process.

How can the document be used?
This guidance will help anyone implementing violence prevention programs to:

  • Identify essential elements of approaches
  • Better understand what evidence-based approaches are and
  • Apply this knowledge to effectively select, deliver, adapt and evaluate approaches.

Although this guidance was designed with evidence-based approaches in mind, it may also be useful for approaches supported by promising or emerging evidence.

To learn more, join CDC and PreventConnect for a web conference Monday, August 28 at 12pm MST. For more information and to register, click here.
