Function 2: Assess Evidence, Fit, and Feasibility of Possible Interventions
Explores how teams can assess an intervention to understand the potential for success with the target population; the fit with the system, agency, and context; and the capacity needed to implement it.
Examines how child welfare agencies can assess and select the best possible intervention to address identified problems and unmet needs. Choosing an appropriate solution requires critical thinking about whether an existing intervention is a “good fit” and holds promise or if something new is needed. This series of eight videos examines intervention selection by considering essential functions or tasks. Function 2 explores why and how teams can assess an intervention to understand the potential for success with the target population, the fit with the system, agency, and context, and the capacity needed to implement it.
