The Role of Organizational Context and External Influences in the Implementation of Evidence-Based Programs: An Exploratory Study. Report IV
Collins, Ashleigh; Burkhauser, Mary
Child Trends
The implementation of high-quality evidence-based practices cannot occur without facilitative administration, systems-level partnerships, and decision-support data systems. The authors believe that understanding "what works" in program "implementation" is just as important as understanding "what works" in a program "model." Recently, researchers have begun to study implementation in an effort to understand the key ingredients for successful program implementation. This current report synthesizes information collected from directors of evidence-based out-of-school time programs related to the implementation of innovative programs and practices. Both the third and fourth report focus on the three implementation drivers related to organization-level practices and external influences: (1) facilitative administration; (2) systems-level partnerships; and (3) decision-support data systems. The three drivers examined were chosen because research shows that the implementation of high-quality evidence-based practices cannot occur without effective management through facilitative administration, systems-level partnerships, and continuous assessment facilitated through decision-support data systems.
