The purpose of this discussion paper is twofold: to identify progress in the use of evidence-based violence prevention programs and selected resources and to discuss the critical gap between the evidence and its translation into demonstrably effective community-based programs. In January 2013, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) convened a 2-day workshop on the evidence base for violence prevention. The IOM Forum on Global Violence Prevention assembled experts to discuss what works to prevent violence, where to find evidence, and challenges faced by practitioners, communities, and policy makers attempting to make use of the existing evidence. This discussion paper highlights several implementation challenges when using such evidence, specifically in the context of the United States. (Author abstract)
