Achieving quality and sustainable outcomes for communities depends on more than just identification of effective practices, but on the effective implementation of those practices, including systems, policy, and staff supports.

During this presentation Dr. Schroeder will describe the ways in which implementation capacity-building can be facilitated within organizations in order to support large-scale community initiatives designed to achieve socially significant impacts for children, families, and adults. Dr. Schroeder will provide an overview of the implementation science frameworks that support large scale initiatives that inform her work with intermediary organizations, as well as discuss key considerations in implementation when supporting smaller stakeholders and communities and supporting the “people who help the people who help the people”, including case examples of this work in action at the community-level. One such case example that will be reviewed is a county-wide partnership between public health, juvenile justice and mental health systems to build a comprehensive assessment, referral, and implementation support system for youth involved in the juvenile justice system and their families.
