Good planning is an essential part of successful evidence-based interventions. This module will help you understand and use key planning tools for public health, including strategic planning, logic models, and work plans.

This is module 8 of the Evidence-Based Public Health Training Series. It is meant to stand alone, but you may also take it together with the other modules in this series to receive a certificate in Evidence-Based Public Health.

This learning opportunity topic is aligned with one or more of the strategic skills.  

This learning opportunity addresses training topics identified in PHWINS 2017.
