Presentation Type: topical discussion
Synopsis: The purpose of the topical discussion is to present and discuss strategies being used in various states for building the infrastructure of organizations and service systems to support the implementation and dissemination of evidence-based practices (EBPs). Supportive infrastructures should have the policy, procedural, and funding mechanisms to sustain EBPs, and be based in system and organizational cultures and climates that value the use of evidence as a strategy to improve the quality of services and increase the likelihood of attaining desired outcomes. Dixon refers to this combination of infrastructure supports and favorable culture/climate as an "evidence-based culture," and suggests that the implementation of EBPs will be more successful in organizations that have an evidence-based culture.
