Domain 10 - Evidence-Based Practices

Standard 10.1

Identify and use the best available evidence for making informed public health practice decisions.

Public health evidence-based practice requires that a health department use the best available evidence in making decisions and in ensuring the effectiveness of processes, programs, and interventions. Evidence-based practice assures that a health department’s resources are being used in the most effective manner. Health departments should access information about evidence-based practices and apply that information to their processes, programs, and interventions.
