DESCRIPTION:
The aim of evidence-based decision-making in public health involves the integration of science-based interventions with community preferences to improve population health. Front line public health professionals need evidence-based information to make decisions on how best to improve public health performance and health in communities. Past studies have shown that by adopting certain administrative practices, health departments can improve their performance. Join us for an in-depth overview with Dr. Ross Brownson of administrative evidence-based practices (A-EBP) that can provide practical solutions based on the best available scientific evidence. Opportunities to apply A-EBP will be discussed and state experiences will be featured.

Ross C. Brownson, PhD, is the Bernard Becker Professor of Public Health at Washington University in St. Louis (Brown School and School of Medicine).

In particular, he is interested in the impacts of environmental and policy interventions on health behaviors and he conducts research on dissemination of evidence-based interventions (particularly in policy settings and health departments). Dr. Brownson is the author of seven books and over 400 peer-reviewed articles. Prior to joining academia, he was a division director with the Missouri Department of Health.
