Selecting Evidence-based Interventions: Finding the Best Fit – R9 Sept 2021

Prevention leaders are dedicated to improving the health of their communities through effective interventions that will reduce substance misuse and its related consequences. Perhaps the most critical decisions prevention staff weigh are what interventions to implement, typically with limited resources. This six-week enhanced prevention learning series (EPLS) offers participants a hands-on, case study-based approach to work through the process of selecting evidence-based interventions that are a strong “fit” for their community. Through a combination of individual, self-study activities (e.g., readings, application activities) and live, synchronous discussion sessions over Zoom, participants will build the skills they need to go through the process of identifying and critically examining interventions that are not just effective but that closely align with their unique community conditions and organizational strengths.
