ECDC is looking for volunteers to pilot this 2-3 hours course. There are 30 places open for those interested in providing feedback for improvements.

This course introduces you to PRECEPT, a framework to assess and grade evidence in public health, with a special focus on communicable diseases. 

The target audience are public health professionals from all career levels with limited or no experience with evidence-based methods that would like to start applying the principles and methods of evidence-based practice in their daily work, and assess and grade evidence in a more systematic and transparent way. 

After taking this course participants shall be able to:

  • Understand, name and explain the different steps and domains of PRECEPT;
  • Identify and frame relevant questions in the different domains;
  • Understand the concept of study validity and apply quality appraisal for different study designs in different domains;
  • Apply the GRADE approach to different domains to determine the strength of a body of evidence.
