Webinar Registration

 

While evidence-based approaches are highly encouraged in the prevention field, it is very important to make sure strategies you select have both conceptual and practical fit, aligning with the priorities, risk and protective factors, and local issues in your community. Additionally, reviewing and weighing the evidence of effectiveness of proposed strategies gives prevention practitioners scientific support for strategy selection in a comprehensive prevention plan. This webinar will provide an 1) overview of strategic fit and its components, providing a step-by-step process of determining best fit for strategy selection; 2) describe how selecting best fit strategies can be adapted to current conditions with COVID-19; and 3) provide the opportunity to interact with fellow participants to explore the application of these strategic fit components into the work of prevention practitioners. Following the webinar, participants will have the opportunity to register for a learning lab where they will breakout into small work groups to discuss these concepts and how they are implemented locally. This is an opportunity to connect with other prevention practitioners nationally and share ideas and experiences in aligning priorities, selecting strategies using strategic fit, considering the context in which you do prevention and the evidence available.
