Presentation Type: element of symposium

Synopsis: Data from the Evidence-Based Practice (EBP) Survey of providers affiliated with CMHS-funded systems of care were analyzed to describe organizational supports available to respondents in their use of evidence-based practices (EBPs). Descriptive analyses were used to summarize the types of supports provided to respondents (n = 175) in the previous year and linear regression modeling was used to explore the relationships between types of supports received and provider feelings of support, autonomy and agency requirements. Direct service providers who responded to the EBP Survey were supported by their agencies in their efforts to use EBP and the receipt of certain types of support may increase a providerÕs feelings of autonomy, feelings of support, and feelings that they have adequate time for EBP implementation.

Presentation Type: element of symposium

Synopsis: This portion of the presentation describes preliminary data from the CMHI Phase V Evidence-Based Practices (EBP) Study. This study builds on the evidence-based treatments studies from previous phases of the CMHI evaluation. Instead of comparing the outcomes of specific practices, it examines some of the factors influencing the adoption, implementation, and life cycle of evidence-based practices in general. Given the current dissension and confusion surrounding EBP, we believe that these are relevant and worthwhile issues to explore.

Presentation Type: element of symposium

Synopsis: The issues around evidence-based practices and programs for childrenÕs mental health are challenging and confounding. Practice-based research networks (PBRNs) have been successfully used by pediatricians and family practitioners to study real-world treatment results. In this presentation, we will explore ways in which a PBRN could be created within the system of care movement as a means to better understand the efficacy and effectiveness of various programs and practices in different cultural and linguistic contexts.
