Key Concepts: This module focuses on the implementation of evidence-based practices—the principles, issues, frameworks and strategies discussed also apply to the implementation of a promising practice, an innovation, and evidence-informed practices in the context of the implementation of a system of care.
Participants will increase their knowledge about implementation frameworks in evidence-based practices and evidence-based programs, and will gain an understanding of the practical frameworks for launching effective implementation efforts within real world settings. Students also will understand the functions of purveyors, stages of implementation and the seven implementation drivers in relation to effectively implementing evidence-based programs and practices. This information is designed to help administrators and supervisors understand the key frameworks as well as the functions that administrators and supervisors must attend to in order to successfully implement any new innovation.
- This course introduces Child and Family Team Members and other practitioners to implementation frameworks for evidence-based practices and programs and promotes understanding how to launch effective implementation efforts within real world settings.
- The context for implementation
- What do we mean by evidence-based practices and evidence-based programs
- The role of the purveyor in the implementation process
- Understand the stages and processes of implementation
- Key Concepts: This module focuses on the mechanisms and processes that are required to change and support new practitioner and front-line staff behavior as well as new organizational roles and functions. It also examines the implementation drivers that impact the skills and abilities of front-line practitioners and those mplementation drivers that create a hospitable environment for the evidence-based practices internal to the organization and externally in the broader system of care. The module will provide information related to how the implementation drivers support fidelity and how they are used to improve practices and programs over time.
Participants will increase their knowledge of the seven implementation drivers in relation to effectively implementing evidence-based programs and practices, as well as the importance of a functional feedback loop that supports implementation as intended and good outcomes for consumers. Child and Family Team members and other front-line practitioners will gain practical knowledge about best practices related to each implementation driver and about the importance of each to achieving outcomes for children, youth, and their families.
