Finding the Evidence: The Importance of Utilizing an Evidence-Based Workgroup to Identify Interventions
It is vital that evidence-based interventions be utilized to ensure the greatest outcomes from the limited resources that exist for prevention. New research changes our understanding over time of what works and what doesn’t in prevention. Having a process in place to select the best interventions based on research is a vital component in a prevention provider’s toolbox. This session will overview the process Kentucky utilized to revive its evidence-based workgroup, review current program offerings and provide guidance to prevention providers in selecting the best strategy based on their local needs assessment.
At the end of this session, participants will be able to:
1) Identify key components of an evidence-based workgroup.
2) Select the right members for an evidence-based workgroup.
3) Develop a process for selecting evidence-based interventions that meet needs of communities.
