This practical book shows how to do evidence-based research in public health. As a great deal of evidence-based practice occurs online, it focuses on how to find, use and interpret online sources of public health information. It also includes examples of community-based participatory research and shows how to link data with community preferences and needs. Each chapter begins with specific learning objectives and concludes with practice exercises geared to the objectives. Each chapter also contains a list of key terms that are an essential part of an evidence-based public health practitioner's vocabulary. The book includes a comprehensive glossary, and hundreds of online and print references, examples, and charts.

"Its emphasis on "evidence-based" is extremely important and relevant, given that funding agencies at all levels are demanding evidence-based practices and sound methods to evaluate public health programs. The end-of-chapter questions and exercises are a great addition to the text that will allow students to critically apply the knowledge gained from the chapters." -- Deric R. Kenne
"It covers a very important topic for the future of public health. There are few very other texts in print that cover this material." -- W. Douglas Evans
