Johns Hopkins Center for Injury Research and Policy’s 2016 Summer Institute: Using Evidence in Practice

Have you ever wondered how strategically integrating evidence maximizes the likelihood of program success? Using Evidence in Practice is a 2 1/2-day course that will focus on how to integrate evidence described in the scientific literature throughout the life of a program.  Participants will learn how to identify and critically evaluate scientific evidence, and determine how best to tailor this to varied practice settings and contexts. Participants will also be introduced to tools for adapting and implementing evidence-based programs in many different areas of public health, with an emphasis on injury prevention. Topics will include assessing physical and social environmental factors that may impact the development, adoption, implementation, and outcomes of interventions; identifying and engaging stakeholders and partners; developing an evidence-informed logic model; and conducting a program evaluability assessment.


  • Public health and safety practitioners, health care professionals, and graduate students interested in evidence-based practice.
  • There are no prerequisites for this course. Practical work experience to draw on during application sessions will be an advantage.
  • This course can be taken for academic credit or not for academic credit.
