EPIC Seminar Series: Making Your EBP Stick for the Long Haul!
September 13, 2016 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am
The 2016 EPIC Seminar Series is focused on the theme of implementing evidence-based practices (EBPs) in community behavioral health settings. These presentations are geared toward behavioral health administrators and clinicians who are interested in an exploration of the latest topics in the field of evidence-based practice and implementation science. Seminars will cover a range of issues that cut across EBPs, including organizational, cultural and practice change factors related to successful implementation of EBPs.
Torrey Creed, Ph.D. will join us to share concrete ideas about what it takes to keep your EBP or innovative practice going. Dr. Creed will share key insights into what sustainability is, why it doesn’t happen automatically, and how to make it more successful.
