Using Implementation Methods to Facilitate Real-World Adoption of Evidence-Based Practice and System Change

October 11, 2019

Lisa Saldana has a PhD in clinical psychology from the University of Missouri-Columbia with a research and clinical emphasis in child welfare populations and evidence-based practice. She is an implementation scientist and intervention developer. She joined the Oregon Social Learning Center--a non-profit research center focused on children, families, and communities--in 2007 and is currently the PI or Co-I on multiple federally funded grants related to implementation in child serving systems.

Moving Evidence-Based Practice from the rigorous research environment to the real-world requires preparation of systems and organizations to establish infrastructure to support successful adoption of programs with fidelity. This presentation considers the role that implementation fidelity can play in helping to develop sustainable real-world programs.
