The focus of this course is on six skills to improve public health practice: developing problem statements, describing issues quantitatively, determining what is known through the scientific literature, developing program or policy options, developing a program or policy plan, and evaluating the activities. The course offers a comprehensive approach to program development and evaluation from a scientific perspective. Participants learn how to access and interpret data systems and use data to impact policies or decision makers. The course actively involves participants in lectures, practice exercises, and case studies.

Audience
The course is intended for public health employees who do not necessarily have a public health background.

Duration
2.5 to 4.5 day course; generally offered three times a year, twice at the state level and once at the national level.
