Recent Study by PRC Researchers Provides Approaches for Ending Ineffective Programs in Public Health Agencies

View Content

Public health agencies are increasingly concerned with ensuring they are maximizing limited resources by delivering effective evidence-based programs to enhance population-level chronic disease outcomes. Despite the focus on use of effective interventions, ineffective programs too often continue at public health agencies. 

This analysis provides insight into how experienced state health department practitioners recommend ending ineffective programs, which may be useful for others working at public health agencies. As de-implementation research is limited in public health settings, this work provides a guiding point for future researchers to systematically assess these strategies and their effects on public health programming.
