This course contains short overviews of Diffusion of Effective Behavioral Interventions (DEBIs) authorized by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).
These DEBIs are designed for HIV/AIDS prevention with persons at risk for acquiring or transmitting HIV. They are meant to be resources used by HIV prevention providers such as health departments and community-based organizations so as to provide the best evidence-based HIV prevention services.
This self-paced training is to provide participants with an understanding of the systematic process for selecting effective behavioral intervention(s) that best fit their community's unique circumstances and organization's capacity. Consequently, this course provides the foundation for successful adaptation and implementation. The course will familiarize participants with common terminology and concepts related to selection and the framework designed to select the most appropriate intervention(s). More on Effective Behavioral Interventions can be found at http://www.effectiveinterventions.org.
As a result of this training, participants will be able to:
- List the four steps in selecting an evidence-base behavioral intervention (EBI);
- Describe how behavioral interventions work to change behaviors;
- Use community assessment results to identify intervention population and risk factors;
- Examine EBI-specific behavior change logic models to assess behavioral interventions;
- Assess agency capacity in relation to EBI-specific implementation plans;
- Match the results of community assessment, intervention assessment, and agency capacity assessment to select the appropriate EBI; and
- Identify available technical assistance resources.
Prerequisite: Participants should have a good working knowledge of behavioral science theory, and program experience in conducting community assessments and implementing HIV/STD prevention interventions. This course is meant to be a prerequisite to the Adapting Evidence-Based Interventions course.
Audience: This course is designed for persons who work at agencies, which make decision about which Effective Behavioral Interventions (EBIs) are the best fit for the population served by the agency. This may include HIV/STD prevention and care program directors, managers, coordinators, and some direct service providers. The target audience may also include those whose roles have direct influence on the prevention services provided to priority populations, including health department staff and community planning group members.
