Presented at the 19th Annual Research Conference

Improving the Odds: Selection as a Factor in Successful Implementation

We're sorry, handouts are not available for this presentation.

Session Number: 6 Room: Salon I

Presentation Type: symposium

Chair: Dean L. Fixsen Discussant: Dean L. Fixsen

Synopsis: As evidence-based programs have gained in popularity, more attention has been given to how to implement those programs with fidelity and good outcomes for consumers, families, and communities. This symposium will begin with an overview of core implementation components derived from literature reviews and practice reviews. The next two presentations will focus on how the purveyors of two well-known evidence-based programs select practitioners to carry out their programs in a variety of implementation sites. Selection of practitioners is essential since it is at this level that evidence-based practices and programs are actually carried out (or not).

Date: Thursday, February 23, 2006

Presenting: Karen Blase

All Authors for this paper: Karen Blase; Sandra Naoom; Frances Wallace

Presentation Type: element of symposium

Synopsis: The goal of implementation is to have practitioners base their therapeutic interactions with clients and stakeholders on research findings. To accomplish this, high-fidelity practitioner behavior is created and supported by core implementation components, including: staff selection, preservice and inservice training, ongoing consultation and coaching, staff evaluation, decision support data systems, facilitative administrative support, and systems interventions. This presentation will provide an overview of the core implementation components and focus attention on the essential role of staff selection.

Staff Selection as a Core Component of EBP Implementation: Ohio’s study of IDDT Program Development

We're sorry, handouts are not available for this presentation.

Presenting: Patrick Boyle

All Authors for this paper: Patrick Boyle; Barbara Wieder

Presentation Type: element of symposium

Synopsis: This presentation will present results from Ohio’s participation in the National Implementing EBPs Project that take an important step toward clarifying and operationalizing staff selection as a core component of effective implementation as well as suggesting its relationship to the course of program development and implementation outcome (fidelity). These results will focus specifically on practitioner and purveyor staff selection. A rationale for carefully measuring the effectiveness of strategies for staff selection and the ways in which this implementation component interacts with others will be explained as the logical target of future research in this important field.

Presenting: Lisa Reiter-Lavery

All Authors for this paper: Lisa Reiter-Lavery; Patrick Duffy; Melanie Duncan

Presentation Type: element of symposium

Synopsis: This presentation will provide an overview of the process by which Multisystemic Therapy hiring materials have been developed and are being utilized. In addition, an overview will be provided of the ongoing process of assessing the usefulness of the materials in supporting the selection of supervisors and therapists who are a good match to the job. A primary focus will be on the issues related to identifying and hiring staff to work within a well-defined, research-based treatment model.
