This group is an international workgroup of individuals interested in proactive implementation support including training, consultation, facilitation, evaluation, and other aspects of moving evidence-based prevention or treatment innovations into routine practice.   All roles (e.g., trainer, internal or external facilitators, consultants, purveyors, EBP Champions, evaluators…) and all organizational types (e.g., non-profit, for-profit, university-based, school-based, healthcare, public health, governmental, child welfare, military and veteran, virtual…) are welcome.  

We will host monthly online presentations and discussions starting July 2019 and in 2019-2020 are participating with the other SIRC Practitioner Networks in a consensus strategy document on building infrastructure for implementation.  

You can contact the members at our listserv email at
