Adapting Prevention Interventions to Better Serve Vulnerable Populations

1:00pm – March 31, 2020 | Timezone: US/Eastern


This webinar, developed by the Central East PTTC, will discuss adapting prevention interventions to better serve minority populations in our communities. By adapting evidence-based interventions, preventionists can implement prevention programs that are a better fit for the specific needs of different populations. This webinar will discuss the importance of assessing the conceptual and practical fit of interventions for minority populations and how adaptation can improve an intervention’s fit. The webinar will walk through the evidence base for why adaptation is important for improving outcomes among diverse populations. It will also discuss evidence-based processes for conducting adaptations in a culturally competent manner that involves active participation and feedback from minority population members. The webinar will provide examples of successful adaptations from research literature.
