Assessing and Sharpening Advanced Skills: A Tool for Prevention Workforce Assessment
Accurate and consistent workforce capacity assessment is critical to the success of prevention systems. This toolkit measures the skills expected of advanced prevention practitioners using a behaviorally-based and fully operationalized rating scale. The toolkit can be used to identify the gaps in workforce capacity that are barriers to achieving desired prevention outcomes. It aims to empower prevention system leadership to better target training and technical assistance offerings and to fine-tune the types and amount of guidance and feedback provided to the field.
