Video 3: Determine Whether Interventions Are Well Defined (Useable and Transferrable)
Presents how teams can determine whether there is sufficient information about an intervention to be clear and easy to explain, useable (intervention has operational definitions and fidelity process or performance assessments), and in alignment with agency principles and values.
Describes how teams define the intervention by stating the purpose, goals, and guiding principles; identifying core components and how they align; and then further operationalizing after getting proposal approval.
Explores how teams can operationalize core components to ensure the intervention meets key criteria, is based on research evidence, and has enough information for teams to carry it out in practice and to measure the results.
Reviews the final tasks of adapting or developing practice profiles to describe the everyday practice of an intervention, support training and coaching to a desired practice, and help measure fidelity and performance outcomes.
Improving child welfare outcomes requires effective solutions that address agencies' specific problems. For teams leading a change process, deciding what to implement is a crucial step in achieving their goals.
