  • Description:
    "Research to identify what works to prevent violence has been growing for many years. While the evidence of effective strategies is steadily increasing, there is a gap between knowledge that has been generated through studies and evaluations and application of these findings to improve violence prevention practice. Efforts to address this gap are commonly referred to as translation, turning knowledge into action, knowledge transfer, or creating actionable knowledge. Actionable knowledge is the creative intersection between "what" we know and "how" to use what we know in everyday practice (Tenkasi and Hay, 2004). Actionable knowledge can also help build research-based evidence on program effectiveness by strengthening violence prevention programs and increasing their readiness for rigorous evaluation and research." - p. 1 The Enhanced Evaluation and Actionable Knowledge project is part of an intra-agency agreement between CDC and the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). The purpose of this project was to engage three Garrett Lee Smith Memorial Act grantees in a process to create products that apply evaluation findings to strengthen suicide prevention practice. 2/21/2012: date from document properties.
