Enhanced Prevention Learning Series: Leveraging systems change for substance misuse prevention

This 6-week Enhanced Prevention Learning Series (EPLS) offers an interactive experience for participants to explore the role of systems change in substance misuse prevention. Participants will examine capacities shown to enable evidence-based interventions to achieve and sustain expected results and learn how to incorporate these into their work. Trainers will share examples from their own systems change experiences and will highlight how leveraging leadership, communications, funding, and data can help participants to achieve their prevention goals. The distance learning series will include skill-based learning opportunities, individual and group activities, reading assignments, and group discussion. By the end of the EPLS, participants will be able to:

  • Describe the importance of systems change to success in the field of prevention
  • Name four capacities necessary to create enabling contexts
  • Identify personal strengths and areas to enhance leadership capacity
  • Name at least two strategies to communicate the value of prevention to enhance system change efforts focused on prevention
  • List three resources available to complete the fund mapping process in their community
  • Describe why data systems are essential in prevention
