Informatics for the public health workforce
It is important in decision-making, policy development, and the establishment of new programs to improve public health that these initiatives be supported by scientific evidence. Evidence-based practice is based on evaluation research that highlights interventions that have been found to be effective. It provides an opportunity to gain a comprehensive overview of the available resources and techniques for searching and finding research to support best evidence in the field of public health.
