Systems of Care

TA pic

Produced via our SAMHSA /TA Network partnership!

In conjunction with SAMHSA and The Technical Assistance Network for Children’s Behavioral Health we published two papers (Bertram, Kerns, Bernstein, Marsenich, Mettrick, Kanary, & Choi, 2015). These were revised and disseminated in 2016.

Federal, state, and foundation funding sources increasingly mandate the use of evidence-based practices (EBPs). For example, the Families First Act sponsored by Orin Hatch (R-Utah) has bi-partisan support and once passed will require any service provider receiving Title IV-E funds to implement evidence-informed practices.

However, confusion and uncertainty limit response to these mandates in systems of care. These two papers briefly present fundamental facts, the rationale for using EBPs within behavioral health service systems, funding strategies and implementation considerations.

The first paper clarifies definitions and addresses common misconceptions about EBPs.

The second paper addresses the implementation factors that support, or if not well-considered, will adversely affect EBP outcomes.

Together, these papers offer examples, strategies, frameworks and tools for selecting, funding, implementing, improving, and sustaining evidence-based and promising practices within systems of care.

Below each paper’s description is a link that opens a pdf of that paper.

Below the second paper’s description There is information and a link to the August 2016 webinar that summarized the revised content from both papers

Evidence-Informed Practice in Systems of Care:

Frameworks and Funding for Effective Services

Organizations adopting an evidence-based, research-based, or promising practice must systematically support its implementation.

When actively applied, three frameworks identified by the National Implementation Research Network (NIRN) support effective service delivery: intervention components, implementation drivers, and stages of implementation (Bertram, Blase, & Fixen, 2015; Fixsen, et al., 2005).

In this paper, we briefly review these frameworks, and offer examples from two states, California and New Mexico, that integrated and financed evidence based practices.
