What Makes It “Evidence-Based”?

Many of us are familiar with the term “evidence-based intervention” or “evidence-based program.” But for many others, especially those who are new to our field, this can be an unfamiliar term.

“Evidence-based interventions,” or “EBIs,” describe a specific kind of programming that has been evaluated to show behavior change. EBIs can be a great way to expand or strengthen the programming you deliver in your community. As part of our #StandingStrong initiative for the Center for Evidence and Innovation, we’ve developed a new elearning module to help you explore what EBIs are, what makes them different from other kinds of programs, and learn some of the basics for using EBIs effectively.

Anyone can access this free learning module, Evidence-Based Interventions, which is housed in our elearning hub, Compass. If you’re a member, you can login (here’s a reminder on how to login to Compass), but if you’re not a member, you can still view it by logging in as a Guest.
