CSAC Hosts Workshop on Evidence in Decision-Making
Representatives from 12 different counties participated in a CSAC workshop that focused on learning about evidence, how to access quality research using the Results First Clearinghouse Database and how to apply research into decision making. With sponsorship from the Pew Charitable Trusts, the Understanding, Accessing, and Applying Evidence in California Counties workshop was the first of a series CSAC will be hosting throughout the year.
The attendees from throughout the state represented a variety of different agencies from Probation, Sheriff, Behavior Health, County Administrator and County Executive Office. The speakers were esteemed specialists in evidence-based policymaking and work directly with state and county leaders from The Pew Charitable Trusts.
In addition, Holly Child from the Santa Clara County Probation Department and David Dobrowski and Tatiana Brennan from Santa Cruz Health and Human Service Department discussed county examples on applying evidence into their decision-making process.
