Standards of Knowledge


The US-American counterpart of the EUSPR, the Society for Prevention Research (SPR), appointed a task group to define prevention science and the type of research that falls within this definition, as well as prepare a document that begins to outline specific training needs for new prevention researchers.  The Standards of Knowledge for the Science of Prevention (click here for full document) developed by this task group puts forth a set of shared standards for training that is comprehensive and relevant both to prevention researchers and prevention practitioners. It is hoped that this document will facilitate a greater understanding of prevention science and aid in the training of prevention researchers.
