[SOLVED] Intervention Guidelines
Some general ideas to consider: ? Have you built the infrastructure you need to support effective implementation of your plan? ? Develop interventions ? Advocate for change ? Policy development ? Multi-tiered approach to deal with systemic issues there is no magic bullet Identify and assess “best practices” or “evidence-based interventions” that could help address the problem or goal. Indicate: a. Potential or promising best practices for your situation (consider various available databases and lists of best or evidence-based practices) b. How strong is the evidence that each potential best practice caused the observed improvement? (Rather than other associated conditions or potential influences) c. Whether the best practice could achieve the desired results in your community d. Whether the conditions (e.g., time, money, people, technical assistance) that affect success for the best practice are present e. (Based on the assessment) The best practice or evidence-based approach to be tried in your situation (Note: If no best practices are known or appropriate to your situation, follow the steps below to design or adapt another intervention.) (Based on the assessment and literature) Specify the core components and elements of the intervention. Be specific about elements to be included for each of these five intervention components: a. Providing information and enhancing skills (e.g., conduct a public information campaign to educate people about the problem or goal and how to address it) b. Modifying access, barriers, exposures, and opportunities (e.g., increase availability of affordable childcare for those entering work force; reduce exposures to stressors) c. Enhancing services and supports (e.g., increase the number of centers that provide health care) d. Changing the consequences (e.g., provide incentives to develop housing in low-income areas) e. Modifying policies and broader systems (e.g., change business or public policies to address the goal) Identify the mode of delivery through which each component and element of the intervention will be delivered in the community (e.g., workshops for skill training). Indicate how you will adapt the intervention or “best practice” to fit the needs and context of your community (e.g., differences in resources, cultural values, competence, language). ? Develop an action plan for the intervention. Include: a. What specific change or aspect of the intervention will occur? b. Who will carry it out? c. When the intervention will be implemented or how long it will be maintained? d. Resources (money and staff) needed/ available? e. Who should know what about this?
