Program Description

How can you select evidence-based approaches that are compatible with your community? Strategic criteria for selecting EBAs that fit your community will be presented in this webinar, including audience characteristics, fit with mission, leadership support, and organizational readiness. We will also define implementation fidelity, steps in program adaptation, and what likely can be changed in an EBA while maintaining fidelity. This content will lead us into planning for implementing and evaluating EBAs which is the third session topic to follow.

Learning Objectives

At the end of the presentation, attendees should be able to:
- Assess the fit between potential evidence-based approaches and the community organization and population
- Describe steps in the adaptation process
- Define fit, core elements, adaptation and fidelity
- Discuss what can probably be changed and what cannot be changed to maintain EBA fidelity
