Domain 10 - Evidence-Based Practices

Standard 10.2

Promote understanding and use of the current body of research results, evaluations, and evidence-based practices with appropriate audiences.

Lack of communication or understanding between public health researchers and public health practitioners often exists. Gaps in understanding may also occur between the public health department and the general public. Communication can help bridge the areas where understanding is lacking and can strengthen the relationship and trust among researchers, public health practitioners, and the public. Communication between public health practitioners and the public, governing entities, and other audiences could encourage others to become advocates for research and to contribute to the science of public health. Health departments should encourage the use of research results, evaluations, and evidence-based practices.
