Change and Implementation Prevention Planning Crosswalk
Use this crosswalk to start thinking concretely about prevention planning as a change and implementation process.
Capacity Building Center for States
Bring your prevention planning team together to explore prevention planning as a change and implementation process. This publication complements the Change and Implementation in Practice series of resources and offers a concrete overview of how the Change and Implementation topics apply to prevention planning.
Use the examples, next steps, and considerations as you work collaboratively to answer the following questions:
Are we ready to develop (or implement) our prevention plan?
Who needs to be at the table?
What problems is our prevention plan designed to address?
What is our pathway to prevention?
Which prevention services are needed to achieve outcomes?
What do we need to successfully implement our prevention plan?
How should we roll out prevention services?
How do we know what’s working and what needs to change?
