Understanding Prevention Science Part 2: Building Support for Science
March 16 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Prevention science is the development and implementation of evidence-based strategies to improve the health and wellbeing of people, families, and communities. This two-part webinar series will define and review prevention science and its relevance to prevention professionals. It will also discuss strategies and provide recommendations for ensuring prevention science is supporting public health efforts.
This webinar will discuss how to ensure that prevention science guides and supports prevention professionals. Part of this is understanding how to identify and implement evidence-based prevention programs and services. Equally important, however, is understanding the need to build a â€œculture of preventionâ€ among policymakers, other public health stakeholders, and the community at large. By having this culture of prevention, prevention professionals can establish support for new and expanded evidence-based programs and services. This webinar will review each of these topics.
- Define a â€œculture of preventionâ€ and its importance
- Identify barriers and challenges to a culture of prevention
- Discuss how to build readiness and support for prevention
- Review strategies for incorporating science to practice
