CDC Best Practices User Guide: Putting Evidence into Practice in Tobacco Prevention and Control

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC’s) Office on Smoking and Health has published a new Best Practices User Guide:  Putting Evidence into Practice in Tobacco Prevention and Control.  The guide was written in partnership with the Center for Public Health Systems Science at Washington University in St. Louis.

After more than 50 years of research, we know what works to reduce commercial tobacco use.  Yet evidence-based interventions are not reaching the people who need them most, and tobacco use still remains the leading cause of preventable death in the U.S.  Dissemination and implementation (D&I) strategies can help close the gap between research and practice by turning what we know into what we do.  This User Guide is designed to help programs share information about what works to reduce commercial tobacco use and put new or improved tobacco control interventions into practice.

The Best Practices User Guide:  Putting Evidence into Practice in Tobacco Prevention and Control can help you:

  • Identify, disseminate, and implement evidence-based tobacco control interventions;
  • Learn from real-world examples of how state programs have used D&I strategies to advance tobacco control goals;
  • Make the case for investing in D&I efforts; and
  • Identify the best resources and tools to get started.

The online version of the guide is available on CDC’s Smoking & Tobacco Website at:
