Scaling an Effective Intervention: How to Build Implementation Capacity, Replicate with Fidelity, and Produce Consistent Outcomes
Start Date: October 14, 2014
End Date: October 14, 2014
When Dean Fixsen and his colleagues at the National Implementation Research Network (NIRN) present, they tell their audiences something shocking: Despite billions of public dollars invested to figure out what works to solve social problems, programs have – on a national scale – produced poor outcomes.
How can that be? The simple answer is that evidence-based programs and practices are often researched under ideal conditions. When practitioners attempt to replicate them in real life, they are not able to implement the interventions with fidelity to the original model. Hence, they do not get the same outcomes. Our collective focus on innovation has come at the expense of paying attention to what it takes to replicate effective programs and practices under real-world conditions.
Join us in a conversation with Dr. Fixsen to hear what it takes to improve social outcomes on a large scale by making effective use of existing interventions:
- What must be in place in order for an evidence-based program or practice to be replicable?
- What does effective implementation look like? How can we build the necessary implementation capacity to replicate with fidelity?
- What conditions are required to enable successful implementation? How can we put in place those conditions?
Attendees will learn about active implementation frameworks, and hear how they have been put to successful use in various contexts. Dr. Fixsen will answer questions from the audience.
This webinar is appropriate for those in the public and nonprofit sectors who want to understand how to produce positive outcomes for a larger population by scaling up existing interventions.
