Leveraging Systems Change in Substance Misuse Prevention
An Enhanced Prevention Learning Series
This six-week distance learning series offers an interactive experience for participants to explore the role of systems change in substance misuse prevention. Participants will examine capacities shown to enable evidence-based interventions to achieve and sustain expected results and learn how to incorporate these into their work. Trainers will share examples from their own systems change experiences and will highlight how leveraging leadership, communications, funding, and data can help participants to achieve their prevention goals. The distance learning series will include skill-based learning opportunities, individual and group activities, reading assignments, and group discussion.
Community-level prevention practitioners and allied partners working to prevent substance misuse in the Northwest Prevention Technology Transfer Center HHS Region 10: Alaska, Idaho, Oregon and Washington. Prevention professionals interested in this course but who work outside of Region 10 are encouraged to contact their region’s PTTC to learn what opportunities for similar courses are available to them.
