Adapting Evidence-Based Interventions

Adaptation is changing the delivery or key characteristics of an intervention from how it was intended, when it originally demonstrated effectiveness, based on who receives it, where it's delivered or implemented, what it focuses on, when it's implemented or delivered, and how its activities are conducted..

By adapting evidence-based interventions, an organization can meet the specific needs of its target population(s) using the framework of a scientifically rigorous approach.

At the end of the training participants will be able to:

  • Describe the historical development of evidence-based interventions
  • Articulate an understanding of terminology such as core elements, fidelity, and internal logic
  • Explain the theories and principles of adaptation and behavior modification
  • Identify the five stages of the adaptation process
  • Select, adapt, and implement an intervention

NCHP's Adapting Evidence-BAsed Interventions can be presented as a training or technical assistance.

Our trainings are available to directly funded community based organizations free of charge.

Please request trainings using the CBA Request Information System (CRIS) and ask for NCHP.

In some circumstances, if you are unable to access the system directly, your local health department may be able to request on your behalf.
