  7. Key Concepts and Terms • Evidence-based intervention • Adaptation & reinvention • Core elements and key characteristics • Fidelity • Technology transfer and exchange

  8. What is Evidence-Based? (CDC 2003, 2006, 2007) • Evidence-based interventions (EBIs) have undergone scientific evaluation and been proven to be efficacious or effective. • Other characteristics can include: • Theoretically based • Specified core elements • Developed by and for target population • Addresses community needs • Effective in changing behaviors • Sustainable over time • Homegrown interventions can be EBIs too! • Popular Opinion Leader, an EBI

  9. Popular Opinion Leader(Kelly et al., 1991, 2004) • Core elements • Directed to identifiable target population, well-defined community venues, population size • Use of ethnographic techniques to identify popular, well-liked, trusted individuals • 15% of target population trained as POLs • Teaching POL skills for effective behavior change communication • Weekly POL meetings to refine skills monitor conversational outcomes • Goal setting for conversations • Review, discuss, reinforce conversation outcomes • Use of logos/symbols as conversation starters

  10. Popular Opinion Leader(Kelly et al., 1991, 2004) • Key characteristics • Elicit involvement of gatekeepers • Identify social networks in target population • Use key informants to identify opinion leaders from social networks • Train opinion leaders • Seek agreements to have conversations • Place posters at venues, give POLs logo items to wear • Recruit successive POLs, train • Hold reunion meetings for POLs

  11. What is Adaptation? (McKleroy et al., 2006) • Modifying key characteristics, activities, delivery methods without competing or contradicting core elements, theory or internal logic of the intervention • Necessary to ensure relevance in local settings, with new populations, or comply with funder • Check with your funder about what they consider appropriate adaptation

  12. Reinvention (CDC, 2006) • Form of adaptation • Necessary for new populations/settings • Core elements have been modified (i.e., adding or dropping) • CDC recommends • Renaming intervention • Formally evaluating prevention outcomes • Ensuring behavioral outcomes were achieved

  13. What are Core Elements?(CDC, 2003, 2006) • Critical elements believed to be responsible for EBIs effectiveness • Required elements that represent the theory and internal logic of the intervention and most likely produce the intervention’s main effects • Must be implemented with fidelity to increase the likelihood that prevention providers will have program outcomes that are similar to those in the original research • Cannot be ignored, added to, or changed

  14. What are Key Characteristics? (CDC 2003, 2006) • Crucial activities and delivery methods for conducting an intervention • CAN be adapted to meet the needs of target population and ensure cultural appropriateness

  15. What is Fidelity? (CDC, 2005) • Part of quality assurance • Implementing or adapting an intervention that adheres to the core elements and internal logic of the intervention • Maintaining the core elements, protocols, procedures, and content that made the original intervention effective • Keeping the “signature” of the intervention (Miller, 2007)

  16. Why does fidelity matter?(Dusenbury et al., 2003) • Adherence • Was intervention delivered as planned? • Dose • What sessions of the intervention were dropped? Shortened? Added? • Quality of delivery • How skilled were facilitators in conducting intervention activities? • Participant responsiveness • How did consumers respond to the intervention?

  17. Why Adapt & Implement EBIs? • EBIs not yet developed for target population (e.g., transgenders) • Content may be outdated (e.g., “HIV virus”, videos need to be updated) • New risk factors or behaviors are identified (e.g., crystal/methamphetamine) • New intervention policies apply (e.g., Advancing HIV Prevention, Prevention with HIV positive people)

  18. Adaptation and Reinvention • Adaptation • POL for Latino young migrant men (Somerville et al. 2006) • Expanded POL training on HIV and STDs • Communication style module changed to be more culturally appropriate, non-linear • Inclusion of referral making in conversations • Reinvention • May be necessary because of new target population or setting • POL delivered without additional POL training or monitoring of conversations (Kelly, 2004)

  19. Technology Transfer & Exchange • Transfer (CDC to CBOs) • Translation, dissemination, acquisition of information about interventions (Kraft et al., 2000) • Exchange (CBOs to CDC, researchers, community planning groups) • Communication of barriers/facilitators experienced in practice, to improve intervention effectiveness (Gandelman et al., 2005) • Transfer and exchange are necessary to adaptation

  20. Target population • Interventions • Goodness of fit • Stakeholders • Organizational capacity Assess • Decide to adopt, adapt, or select another intervention • Make necessary changes to EBI Select Prepare • Prepare agency • Pre-test materials • Implementation plan • Successful pilot of adapted intervention Pilot Implement • Implement adapted EBI Overview (Adapted from McKleroy et al., 2006)

  21. Step 1: Assess • Target population • Identify target population • Understand risk factors, behavioral determinants, risk behaviors, epidemiological trends, social norms • Choose risk factors to target • Identify where, when, how to reach target population

  22. Step 1: Assess (cont’d) • Interventions • Identify and review possible EBIs • Review content of EBIs • Identify risk factors, behavioral determinants and risk behaviors • Identify core elements and key characteristics • Access cost and resources needed • Talk with other agencies

  23. Step 1: Assess (cont’d) • Goodness of fit • Match between risk factors, behavioral determinants, and risk behaviors in EBI and those of target population • Short list of EBIs • Identify areas needed for EBI adaptation • Identify areas for agency capacity building

  24. Step 1: Assess (cont’d) • Stakeholders • Identify stakeholders • Seek input • Assess referral and collaboration possibilities • Define accountability • Identify competing programs

  25. Phase 1: Assessment (cont’d) • Organizational capacity • Resources or experience • Physical • Financial • Access • Values/mission • Staff/human resources • Cultural competence • EBI • Evaluation • Accountability

  26. Step 2: Select • Decide to adopt, adapt, or select another intervention • Build capacity on EBI and for implementation • Consult with stakeholders • Consult with staff

  27. Step 2: Select • Make necessary changes to EBI (adaptation) • Decide what changes are needed • Seek guidance or technical assistance • Develop timeline and logic model • A logic model describes the relationships among risk factors/determinants, intervention activities and desired outcomes • Track changes made

  28. Teach POLs conversation elements  confidence to be able to engage in behavior risk behavior in target community POL Logic Model Risk determinants Intervention Activities Outcomes Teach POLs the intervention rationale Knowledge of effective communication  perception of behavior norms Attitudes/norms for engaging in conversations Self-efficacy to engage in conversations POLs practice and engage in conversations Adapted from CDC POL Logic Model

  29. Step 3: Prepare • Prepare organization • Recruit/train staff and volunteers • Assign responsibilities • Handle logistics • Confirm referrals and collaborations • Pre-test adapted EBI • With stakeholders • With members of target population

  30. Step 4 : Pilot • Plan for implementing EBI • Agency policies for adapted EBI • Referral networks • Roles and responsibilities • Timeline

  31. Step 4 : Pilot • Gauge success of pilot • Success: move to next step • Failure: review, revise, re-pilot • Fidelity • Adherence • Dose • Quality • Participant response

  32. Step 5 : Implement • Implement adapted EBI • Collect process data • Conduct process monitoring and evaluation • Collect intervention outcome data • Make small changes based on process evaluation • Use available technical assistance
