Results from the data and democracy initiative to enhance community-based organization data and research capacity
This study evaluated an initiative designed to increase community-based organizations’ data and research capacity through a 3-day train-the-trainer course on community health assessments. The results of the evaluation suggest that an intensive, short-term training program can achieve large immediate gains in data and research self-efficacy in community-based organization staff. In addition, the results show initial evidence that such a training program can achieve longer-term behavior change related to use of data and research skills.
