This section of the NCTSN Learning Center provides access to speakers, information, tools, and resources focused on key implementation science principles and lessons learned from implementation efforts. The aim of these courses are to promote the successful training, adoption, implementation, and sustainability of evidence-based treatment and practices. All of the content in this course was developed with implementation of practices within the context of NCTSN sites in mind – the population, settings, challenges, and needs commonly seen by providers serving children and families impacted by trauma. Speakers and products generated as a part of the 2015 NCTSN Implementation Summit highlight key research and usable tools. The Implementing and Sustaining Evidence-Based Practices course covers a broad array of implementation topics, research, and resources. The TOOLCIT Curriculum is a module-based course that outlines key components of implementation collaboratives while giving practical examples and modifiable resources that will assist instructors or participants in collaborative learning environments.
Ensuring that organization leadership has basic knowledge of implementation science principles, understands their role, and has the capacity and skill to play that role is critical in any implementation collaborative. This guide brings together implementation science with the experience and expertise of the NCTSN to outline the important facets of senior leadership during the implementation and sustainability of evidence-based interventions, practices, or products.
The NCTSN has learned a lot through the development of products that increase access to and quality of care, by spreading treatments and best practices in training and system change efforts, and more recently, regular gatherings of implementation experts working at all levels of child trauma treatment and care. This series focuses on three different and critical components of effective implementation – the framework, readiness preparation, and sustainability.
This webinar is an abridged version of the opening plenary from the 2015 NCTSN Implementation Summit. The plenary is followed by a discussion of how questions addressed in the plenary permeated throughout each of three Summit tracks – Implementation of Evidence-Based Treatments, Implementation of Trauma-Informed Practices, and Evaluation of Implementation – during the two-day event and explore next steps.
This compilation of resources stemming from the NCTSN Implementation Summit include the full Implementation Summit Panel video, bibliographies from the Summit and Implementation Task Force (ITF), an Implementation Glossary, Evidence-Based Treatment Resources Abstract list and more.
The goal of this speaker series is to raise your awareness and understanding of issues related to implementation of evidence-based practices within mental health organizations. The series focuses on several key implementation principles, including: The state of the field of implementation science; Conceptual frameworks for addressing the unique elements involved in organizational change; and Suggestions for creating changes necessary at all levels of an organization to successfully adopt and implement evidence-based practices.
TOOLCIT stands for: Teaching Others to Orchestrate Learning Collaboratives through Instruction and Technical Assistance. The goal of the TOOLCIT curriculum is to support NCTSN sites as they disseminate, implement, and sustain evidence-based treatments, promising practices, products, and system changes to organizations that serve children and families who have experienced trauma. The curriculum is aimed at those directing or leading Learning Collaboratives, serving as advisors to Learning Collaboratives, serving as Faculty in Learning Collaboratives, and participating in a collaborative implementation initiative.
