 About the Webcast:

This is first of the FIVPAC webinar series on injury and violence prevention in the state of Florida.

 This presentation is on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) policy process model. The purpose of the presentation is to provide a common understanding of what policy is and the process by which it is conceptualized, developed, adopted, and evaluated. Policy development is rarely a linear process. In an ideal scenario, a problem is defined, potential policy solutions are identified, analyzed, and prioritized, and the best solution is adopted and evaluated. Public professionals play an important role in the policy process, for example, by conducting policy analysis, communicating findings, developing partnerships, and promoting and implementing evidence-based interventions.
