The Research Training Institute (RTI) is a 2 ½ day series of interactive workshops, presentations, mentoring and small group sessions that will take place at the Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora, Colorado. The objectives of the RTI are to:
- Encourage data-driven, evidence-based community practice with rigorous evaluation, with the goal of preventing suicide in the Rocky Mountain region;
- Create collaborative, sustainable partnerships between practitioners and researchers/evaluators so that the perspectives, knowledge, and skills of each inform the work of the other;
- Provide both violence and injury prevention professionals and evaluators/researchers with a shared body of knowledge and skills in suicidology, public health and prevention, and relevant evaluation methodologies;
- Develop plans for a local project related to suicide prevention that can be evaluated and, ideally, documented for replication in other communities.
