Understanding Program Adaptation

10 May 2018

11am – 12pm EST


For our next webinar we are delighted that Dr Cam Escoffery will give a talk entitled “Understanding Program Adaptation: A Scoping Study of Frameworks and Systematic Review of Adapted Evidence-based Interventions”. Dr Escoffery is Associate Professor, Department of Behavioral Sciences and Health Education, Rollins School of Public Health, Emory University.

In the dissemination of evidence-based interventions (EBIs), little is known about how adaptation occurs.  In using EBIs, there may be mismatches between the characteristics of the population, implementing agency, and/or community to the original program. Organizations sometimes make adaptations to correct mismatches. This presentation will present definitions of program adaptation, frameworks guiding it and results of a systematic review characterizing adaptations globally. Future areas of research will also be discussed.

Participants will have an opportunity to pose their questions at the end of the session in a Q&A, moderated by Dr Wendy Gonzalez, Technical Specialist, Knowledge Leadership, at Global Alliance for Improved Nutrition (GAIN).

After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the webinar.
