Sunday, November 3, 2013 : 4:15 p.m. - 5:15 p.m.

Cam Escoffery, PhD, Department of Behavioral Science and Health Education, Rollins School of Public Health, Emory University, Atlanta, GA
This session will describe the different phases of implementation for evidence-based programs, policies and practices and critical tasks that are important to the success of each of the phases. It will also describe the RE-AIM model for evaluating the adoption or adaptation of an evidence-based strategy, how to develop evaluation questions and what methods help answer those questions. Finally, it will address how to use evaluation data to support community engagement on the health issue and future plans for sustaining the evidence-based practice. Practitioners have a gap in knowledge of what is effective implementation of a program, strategy, or policy and how best to evaluate adopted or adapted evidence-based practices. They will learn about successful tasks in implementing evidence-based practices based on the research literature and types of evaluation questions and methods that can assist in understanding implementation and outcomes of use of evidence-based practices.
