Striking the right balance between fidelity & adaptation: tools and strategies for implementing evidence-based substance use prevention programs to meet community needs

Striking the right balance between fidelity & adaptation: tools and strategies for implementing evidence-based substance use prevention programs to meet community needs

Join this session from the Washington/Baltimore High Intensity Drug Trafficking Area to learn about the latest research on the fidelity vs. adaptation debate.
 
The adoption of an effective substance use prevention program is only the first step toward achieving the positive youth and family outcomes community-based organizations aim to achieve. Research has demonstrated time and time again that high-quality implementation of evidence-based programs over time is critical to attaining reductions in youth substance use. However, there continues to be some debate about whether programs should be flexibly adapted to fit local contexts or delivered with strict fidelity to the original program model. Increasingly, evidence from research and practice indicates that there must be a balance between the two to achieve positive and sustained program outcomes.
 
This webinar will provide an overview of the latest research on the fidelity vs. adaptation debate and will share best practice tools and strategies for community organizations aiming to strike the right balance between program fidelity and adaptation to meet the needs of their local communities.

Elevating Prevention Voices in Region 10 Opioid Settlement Decisions: A Regional Conversation

Elevating Prevention Voices in Region 10 Opioid Settlement Decisions: A Regional Conversation

You may have heard that in late February 2022, several pharmaceutical companies reached a $26 billion settlement to compensate state and local governments for the costs they incurred as a part of the opioid epidemic in the United States. But, did you know that these monies are due to begin flowing into states and communities in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Alaska as early as this summer? This money will be used to address the consequences of the opioid epidemic by supporting opioid use disorder treatment – and the prevention of future opioid misuse. But, there is dramatic latitude in how states and local governments can and plan to use their allocations. Join Northwest PTTC Co-Directors Drs. Kevin Haggerty and Brittany Cooper to learn more about the status of opioid settlements and their distribution for each state in our region, and how, as a united community of prevention professionals, we can elevate prevention voices in this conversation.

Audience
Prevention practitioners, allied health partners and community members working to prevent substance misuse in tribes, communities, and states in HHS Region 10 (Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, and Washington).

Free
