Deeper Dive into Data Informed Decision Making - Session 1 Data Informed Planning

“Now that I’ve done my assessment, what do I do with all this information?” 

Too often we dive into prevention efforts without sifting through the types of information that can help us plan effectively.  This interactive webinar will help prevention practitioners in HHS Region 2 and beyond explore the many types of information that we can use to plan our strategies, ways to share data with partners to allow collective decision-making, and the key steps in a planning process we can use make sure that our decisions are data-informed.  Participants will have opportunities to share successes and challenges, and to provide each other with “data therapy” to work through current challenges. 

Learning Objectives:

  • List types of information typically collected during a substance misuse prevention-focused needs assessment process.
  • Identify key steps in a comprehensive prevention planning process.
  • Describe how to use assessment data to inform the prevention planning process.
