Function 4: Decide to Replicate or Adapt an Existing Intervention or Design a New One
Examines how teams can use a structured approach to determine if an existing intervention with adaptations meets agency needs or if teams need to design a new one.
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 4 explores how a team can use a structured approach to determine if an existing intervention meets the identified needs with adaptations or if the team needs to design a new intervention.
