Overview: Dr. Marcia Stanhope (2016) explained that evidence-based  public health practice refers to those decisions made by using the best  available evidence, data and information systems and program frameworks;  engaging community stakeholders in the decision-making process;  evaluating the results; and then disseminating that information to those  who can use the information.

Practicum Discussion: This week, your assignment will be to  incorporate all of the information you have gathered from the  community—including the population itself, health data,  interviews/conversations with interested community members, and your  community assessment, including your Windshield Survey—as well as what  you have gathered from scholarly literature to propose measureable  interventions. Measureable interventions mean that the results can be  measured through some data that could be collected (Stanhope, 2016).  This requires thinking in terms of actions and then measuring results.  An evaluation of interventions is important to see whether or not they  are effective in solving a health care problem. Remember, you will need  to use the data you gathered to determine whether or not a problem  exists in your community and to then determine whether your  interventions might be effective.
