CPCRN Audience Response Session: Testing Evidence-Based Recommendations

CDC Cancer Conference, August 15, 2007
Presenters: Maria E. Fernandez, PhD, Patricia Dolan Mullen, DrPH, Michelle Kegler, DrPH & Matthew W. Kreuter, PhD, MPH

The session both informed attendees about resources available to them to learn about evidence-based approaches to cancer prevention and control (EBAs) and collected data to inform the CPCRN’s development a tool to help cancer prevention and control program planners identify, adapt, and implement EBAs in their communities. Attendees used audience response keypads to answer questions about their familiarity with and feelings about EBAs and the resources currently available to them for learning about how to adapt and implement EBAs in their areas.  The audience response data collected were displayed during the session and used to spur discussion of EBAs and resources to find, adapt, and implement them.
