University of North Carolina CPCRN Team Presented the CPCRN Curriculum to the North Region of the American Cancer Society

On July 16th, 4CNC team members Jennifer Leeman, Catherine Rohweder and Mary Wangen and Emory faculty, Cam Escoffery, traveled to Bloomington, MN, to provide a day-long training to over 30 American Cancer Society (ACS) North Region staff in the hospital and healthcare systems verticals. They delivered a version of the CPCRN’s “Putting Public Health Evidence into Action” curriculum that is adapted for a more clinically oriented audience. Pre- and post-training evaluation data demonstrate increases in self-reported confidence to meet all 20 learning objectives from the six training modules. The results will be used to refine the curriculum for future trainings. The team is currently exploring ways to deliver the training to more ACS regions and in alternative formats, such as a webinar series. One ACS participant noted, “Loved the process maps and all the tools to find EBIs [evidence-based interventions]… Evaluation is essential and the tools shared will help!”
