2021 Speaker Series

Implementation Science: Selecting the Right Evidence-Based Practice for Your Organization

The Meadows Institute is continuing our 2021 Speaker Series with our third webinar event on Implementation Science: Selecting the Right Evidence-Based Practice for Your Organization.

Join us for this event on May 5 with Dr. Patrick Tennant who will detail what it means to call a practice “evidence-based” and address the factors you need to consider in order to select the right evidence-based practice (EBP) for your organization. Dr. Tennant will discuss how to review EBPs, why the evidence base for a particular practice is critical to understand, and how to organize and maintain your program to optimize the benefit to the people you serve.

ABOUT THE 2021 SPEAKER SERIES

Implementing Evidence-Based Practices for Children, Youth, & Families

Throughout 2021, the Meadows Institute will welcome experts in implementation science, evidence-based practices, health equity, financing, and more to help Texas mental health providers deepen their understanding of how to roll-out and sustain best practices in mental health.

While many of these principles can be applied to a broad population, we will focus on evidence-based practice implementation efforts targeting children, youth, and their families. If you’ve ever wondered what makes some initiatives take hold and others slowly fade away, you’ll want to mark your calendar for these events.

Information on both upcoming and past events is available on the series project page. See our Events page for details and registration of upcoming events.
