Description:

Session 4, Implementation and Evaluation, focuses on the implementation of evidence-based programs and practices to address the inequities experienced by populations. Participants will learn that the initiatives we implement are not solely about the prevention and reduction of substance misuse but that they play an important role in the promotion of justice and equity. Evaluation is the systematic collection and analysis of information about prevention activities to reduce uncertainty, improve effectiveness, and facilitate decision-making. Ultimately, evaluation is about enhancing prevention practice and community accountability. We will discuss how evaluation can be used as tool to create systems change for equitable purposes. 


Learning Objectives:

After participating in the training participants should be able to:

  1. Describe how prevention initiatives can promote justice and equity in communities

  2. Implement initiatives with a deeper focus on population needs 

  3. Identify which elements of evaluation can assist with achieving equity

  4. Use evaluation findings to expose disparities and shine a light on equity successes
