CLINICAL RESEARCH MANAGEMENT (U80)  (Dept. Info)University College  (Policies)

U80 CRM 306Evidenced-Based Decision Making3.0 Units
Description:This course is an interdisciplinary, practice-based project, providing evidence and recommendations for the development of policies and advocacy. It seeks to critically examine how the intersection of disciplines shapes both (1) the understanding of health (broadly defined) and (2) how data are used to develop policies and programs for communities. Although the focus of the project is on a particular issue, it highlights the intersection with other axes of culture, government, leadership, and social determinants such as sex, gender, and poverty, thus bridging the gap of theory and practice and achieving a better understanding of their complexity and intersectorial nature. Even though the outcome of this project is writing a policy brief along with providing policy and program recommendations, it also emphasizes the following competencies: (1) demonstrating effective written and oral skills for communicating with different audiences in the context of professional public health activities; (2) applying core functions of assessment, policy development, and assurance in the analysis of public health problems and their solutions; and (3) embracing a definition of public health that captures the unique characteristics of the field and how these contribute to professional practice. Particular emphasis will be placed on the process for developing policy recommendations by developing a topic from a secondary dataset, writing a detailed background section, identifying appropriate variables, and analyzing the data. Students will be placed in groups of three to complete each assignment. The topic this term will be obesity in St. Louis.

A course may be either a “Home” course or an “Ident” course.

A “Home” course is a course that is created, maintained and “owned” by one academic department (aka the “Home” department). The “Home” department is primarily responsible for the decision making and logistical support for the course and instructor.

An “Ident” course is the exact same course as the “Home” (i.e. same instructor, same class time, etc), but is simply being offered to students through another department for purposes of registering under a different department and course number.

Students should, whenever possible, register for their courses under the department number toward which they intend to count the course. For example, an AFAS major should register for the course "Africa: Peoples and Cultures" under its Ident number, L90 306B, whereas an Anthropology major should register for the same course under its Home number, L48 306B.
