These slides are the final PowerPoint slides from this presentation. The presentation presents results from a National Institute of Health funded study titled “A Critical Review of Evidence-Based Program Repositories in Behavioral Health”. The purpose of the study was to better understand best-practice repositories for behavioral health, in order to highlight issues that may improve their future operation, and also to better understand the paradigms of evidence currently used for certifying best-practices.
The study identified 20 registers, including registers funded by state or federally funded organizations. Additionally, major registers of meta-analyses were also included. The research team used both document reviews and interviews with key informants to examine major features of the registers, the paradigms of evidence they used, and their methods of disseminating information about evidence-based practices.
This multi-paper session includes three papers, which discuss 1) key findings about register structure and paradigms of evidence, 2) meta-analyses as a form of evidence, and 3) a pilot study for users of evidence-based registers. #Alcohol,DrugAbuse,andMentalHealth #EvidenceBasedPractice #2015Conference
