Prevention leaders are dedicated to improving the health of their communities through effective strategies to reduce substance misuse and its related consequences. Perhaps the most critical decisions prevention staff weigh are what set of interventions to implement, typically with limited resources. This webinar will provide an introduction to best processes and resources available to use when making these critical decisions. Attendees will also be given priority to enroll in a new 6-week distance learning course for in-depth, skill-based and real-world learning and practice in selecting evidence-based programs, practices, and policies.
By the end of this training, participants will be able to:
• Describe key features of an evidence-based intervention
• Name at least two locations to locate potential evidence-based interventions
• Describe the three conditions for determining the “fit” of an evidence-based
