Check out CDC’s latest online tool to inform your violence prevention efforts!

CDC released Select, Adapt, Evaluate! How to Use Essential Elements to Inform Your Prevention Approaches, an online tool to help state and local partners implement prevention approaches based on the best available evidence.

Practitioners must often make decisions about how to balance delivering violence prevention approaches as intended with the reality of their local community settings. The Division of Violence Prevention developed this online tool to support the decision-making process. The tool complements the “Adaptation” section on Violence Prevention in Practice website and the document, Using Essential Elements to Select, Adapt, and Evaluate Violence Prevention Approaches. pdf icon[10 MB]

How can the tool be used?

Select, Adapt, and Evaluate! will help explain how evidence-informed approaches work and suggest ways to effectively select, deliver, adapt, and evaluate approaches in a community. Although this tool was designed with evidence-based approaches in mind, it may also be useful for approaches supported by promising or emerging evidence.
