This document reviews some of the similarities and differences experienced in the creation, functioning, and structure of Evidence-Based Workgroups.
The purpose of Evidence-Based Workgroups (EBWs) is to (1) understand the State’s SPF SIG priorities and logic model; (2) operationalize SAMHSA/CSAP’s 2009 guidance document, entitled Identifying and Selecting Evidence-Based Interventions, to identifying and selecting evidence-based interventions; and (3) review and make recommendations on communities’ comprehensive plans. While these functions are shared among all EBWs, the processes and elements States, Tribes, and Jurisdictions put into place in order to achieve them often vary considerably. This document reviews some of the similarities and differences experienced in the creation, functioning, and structure of EBWs.
