Adapting Prevention Interventions to Better Serve Populations Which Are Under-Resourced, Part 2: Strategies and Practices for Adapting Evidence-Based Programs

August 16 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Prevention professionals should ensure that the interventions implemented in their communities are effective for and appropriate to people in need of services. This includes ensuring that populations which are under-served or disadvantaged have access to preventions services tailored and relevant to their needs. Due to various systematic issues, many populations have historically not received such prevention services and have had difficulty accessing what services were available. By adapting evidence-based interventions, prevention professionals can implement more accessible, culturally relevant services. This two-part webinar series will review the need for adaptation, challenges and strategies associated with it, and examples of successful adaptations.


This webinar will explore various practices and strategies for prevention professionals to consider when adapting interventions. It will review the primary frameworks and models that prevention professionals can use to structure their adaptation efforts. The webinar will also explain how to assess community context and determine the conceptual and practical fit of interventions. Additionally, it will review opportunities for prevention organizations to improve their cultural humility and competence. Lastly, the webinar will share examples of successful adaptations of evidence-based prevention interventions.
