Case Study Provides Effective Sample Framework for Implementing Evidence-Based Programs

Jaymie Lorthridge

Human services organizations are undergoing increased pressure to demonstrate they are implementing services with fidelity. In a new article, researchers provided a case study illustrating the use of the well-known National Implementation Research Network (NIRN) framework that monitors and increases the quality of staff services to program participants. The findings appear in a new article: What Human Service Leaders Need to Know About Supporting Staff to Implement Evidence-Informed Programs. Westat’s Jaymie Lorthridge, Ph.D., was a co-author.

The case study describes the RISE program, an initiative to improve child welfare services for youth who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning. It provides an effective example for implementing evidence-based and evidence-informed programs by describing strategies used to apply the implementation competency drivers, as well as challenges, successes, and lessons learned.
