Putting the Pieces Together: Practical Strategies for Implementing Evidence-Based Practices

Those new to the implementation of evidence-based practices (EBPs) will find this publication to be a great guide to the process. This manual is designed to be used “both as a checklist of key management concepts and as a reminder of important organizational issues that need to be addressed to achieve positive public safety outcomes in an evidence-based environment” (p. vii). There are six chapters contained in this publication: creating evidence-based community corrections systems; getting started; organizational assessment-to know where you are going, you need to know where you are; strategic planning-choosing your destination; mapping the route-developing a workplan; and ongoing quality improvement.
