Evidence – Based Programs Review

Purpose of This Project

To provide insight into a few selected evidence-based programs (EBP) for each of the following topics:

Details in Each Section

As a product of my RADAR internship I, Katelyn Geselle, have reviewed several programs and chosen one that I feel is excellent from each category. The selected programs were rigorously reviewed, and you’ll find in each topic’s section:

  • An overview of the program
  • Goals
  • Links (i.e., to the program website, National Registry of Evidence-based Programs and Practices, etc.)
  • Target age group(s)
  • Target gender(s)
  • Institute of Medicine (IOM) Prevention Classification
  • Possible implementation settings
  • Cost associated and how to purchase/access
  • Program contact information
  • Training information
  • A list of pros and cons/barriers to implementation
  • Short justification of why I chose this program over others in the same category
  • Honorable mention(s)—programs that are good, but not excellent

Why EBP Is Important

Evidence-based programming is extremely important because it provides sound, scientific evidence of an intervention’s effectiveness. Implementing programs that are effective is crucial in order to use valuable resources efficiently.

I researched Idaho statistics and demographics in order to fully understand the climate and needs of this state. Each selected program was chosen based on its ability to meet Idaho’s specific needs.
