Purpose of CBTAT Workgroup Build the capacity of cancer control planners and public health professionals to locate, select, adopt, adapt, implement and evaluate evidence-based cancer prevention programs, policies and practices through training and technical assistance Advance the knowledge of models of capacity building and evaluate training or technical assistance initiatives in translating evidence-based approaches into communities
Training Curriculum Development Combining collective knowledge/expertise across centers from past trainings and local examples Developing standardized, interactive training materials for in-person and webinar workshops (for varying durations) Sharing multiple web resources to locate sources of evidence Including case studies and exercises that provide hands- on applications for learning transfer Finalizing training slides, speaker’s notes, activities and supporting resources with workgroup members
Overall Learning Objectives Discuss what “evidence” means Learn how to use needs assessments to develop goals and objectives Describe different evaluation methods to consider when planning implementation Identify sources to find evidence-based chronic disease prevention strategies Assess the fit between potential approaches and the organization and population Describe steps in the adaptation process Develop an implementation work plan that integrates RE-AIM evaluation measures
“Putting Evidence into Action” Curriculum Session 1: Defining Evidence (20 min) Session 2: Conducting Community Assessments (40 min) Session 3: Defining Evaluation (25 min) Session 4: Finding Evidence (45 min) Session 5: Selecting an Option that Fits Your Community (60 min) Session 6: Adapting to Fit Your Community (50 min) Session 7: Implementing and Evaluating Evidence-Based Strategies (60 min)

Next Steps & Discussion Community Guide has approached us to make parts of our training available via an online format –What do centers think about that possibility? –How else should we disseminate our training? Is there interest in creating a sub-group about mini-grants processes, TA methods, and/or potential publications?
