April 29, 2014 -- Child and Family Policy Forum, "At Scale Implementation of Evidence-Based Interventions: Policy, Practice, and Evaluation Perspectives"
While scientific research can suggest solutions to leaders in the child welfare system for improving well-being, the actual process of at scale implementation of evidence-based interventions has many challenges. To improve the well-being of children in the child welfare system, states will have to master the difficult problem of aligning policy, what works clinically, and the needs of highly vulnerable children and families.
In this forum, our panel of experts will discuss the challenges of at scale implementation of evidence-based interventions from three perspectives. System leaders have to organize resources behind the structures and processes needed to support proper assessment, treatment planning, and service delivery; treatment developers have to scale interventions with fidelity; and evaluators have to document whether the resulting alignment brings real change in the well-being of children.
