Training Description
Evidence Based Practices (EBPs) promise great recidivism reduction results; but only to the degree that they are implemented as designed and as intended. Contemporary organizational and implementation research communities have reported high rates of failure when it comes to implementation of new practices, programs, and policies. Effective implementation is a direct result of the people doing the work, the culture within which they are working, the data driving the process and the leadership environment surrounding the EBP itself. These four (4) areas make up the Pillars of Effective Implementation Acumen and come with a variety of strategies and tools to apply to all aspects of the change process. The purpose of this workshop is to demystify implementation science by reviewing the Four Pillars. This workshop will provide participants with a user-friendly framework for learning and applying the best practices from the implementation research community.
