The Child and Family Evidence based Practice Consortium is a truly international group. Several of our Advisory Board Members including Bianca Albers, Jane Lewis, and Jacquie Brown presented papers at the recent 3rd biennial Global Implementation Conference in Dublin Ireland.
Highlighting Jacquie Brown
Jacquie leads development for Triple P International Parenting in African and other nations. She conducted workshops and presentations on implementation in low and middle income countries, highlighting that implementation science tends not to be used in providing services or evidence based practices, and that this diminishes sustainability of these efforts.
With Jenna McWilliam, also from Triple P International, Jacquie also presented The Role of the Purveyor Organization in promoting sustainability in a self-regulatory framework.
And Jacquie pinch hit for SCI KMN and presented Spinal Cord Injury Knowledge Dissemination Network: An adapted collective impact exemplar for social impact within neuroscience innovation ecosystems in the Canadian context.
Given such diverse knowledge and abilities, we’re quite certain that if Jacquie were a major league baseball player, she would command the highest of salaries!
