Community Development Teams: Bridging the Gap between Intervention Developers and Real World Service Systems

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

Presenting: Lynne Marsenich

All Authors for this paper: Lynne Marsenich; Todd Sosna; Bill Carter

Presentation Type: element of symposium

Synopsis: Despite the increasing availability and demand for well-validated interventions, it is estimated that 90% of publicly funded service systems do not deliver treatment or services that are evidence based. Although integrating evidence-based practices into existing systems promises to improve the quality of care for children and their families, there are many challenges to their adoption and implementation. Successful incorporation of such interventions typically requires changes in existing policies, procedures and practices. This presentation will review the Community Development Team model which is a strategy for engaging and supporting service systems to increase willingness to implement and sustain evidence-based practice.

Presentation Time: 4:45 PM - 5:45 PM

Nurse-Family Partnership Program Replication Infrastructure and Process: Lessons Learned

Download Handouts: 40kb pdf

Presenting: Peggy Hill; Kellie Teter

All Authors for this paper: Peggy Hill; Kellie Teter

Presentation Type: element of symposium

Synopsis: After ten years of delivering, evaluating, and improving replication services related to the Nurse-Family Partnership, clarity is emerging about essential strategies on the part of program developers to assist new sites in achieving fidelity and sustainability. This presentation will review the lessons learned and the evolution of technical assistance to sites related to model building, defining core intervention components, evaluation, national monitoring, and building a community of practice. Strategies related to developing a learning community and feedback loops for the developers as replication experts also will be detailed.

Presentation Time: 4:45 PM - 5:45 PM

Access, Capacity, and Implementation Strategies of Developers of Evidence-Based Programs

Presenting: Sandra Naoom

All Authors for this paper: Sandra Naoom; Karen Blase; Dean Fixsen; Tracy Gilbert-Johnson; Frances Wallace

Presentation Type: element of symposium

Synopsis: Little cumulative, formal information exists regarding the processes; products and procedures utilized by program developers as they take responsibility for helping others implement their evidence-based intervention. If evidence-based practices and programs are to achieve their promise, they must be accessible; there must be a capacity to assist new sites; we must understand the current capacity in relation to need, demand, and emergent knowledge must be shared so that both the science and practices of implementation can improve. This qualitative study of in-depth interviews with a random sample of 64 program developers examines program developers' capacity, accessibility, and their implementation strategies.

Presentation Time: 4:45 PM - 5:45 PM

Implementation Capacity for Evidence-Based Practices: Supply, Demand, and Bridging the Gap

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

Session Number: 28 Room: Salon D

Presenting: Karen Blase

All Authors for this paper: Karen Blase

Presentation Type: brief symposium

Synopsis: Evidence-based interventions are increasingly seen as important for an effective system of care. But, how many researchers are prepared to assist communities with the realities of implementation and do they use the current science of implementation? How can intermediary organizations help bridge the gap between the limited "supply" of "purveyors" and the growing demand. This presentation will highlight the results of a qualitative study of 64 program developers and their implementation strategies. In addition, an experienced "purveyor" will discuss their evolution in assisting communities with scale-up. An intermediary organization will highlight strategies in bridging the gap between program developers and communities interested in implementing ebps.
