Presenters: Scott Boyles and Mat Roosa, LCSW-R The collective struggle of healthcare systems to engage in timely and sustained implementation of the ASAM criteria and other EBPs has been well documented. Implementation science helps us to understand the key ingredients of effective implementation and sustainment and shows that didactic education is necessary but clearly not sufficient to ensure implementation success. This webinar offered a brief overview of the ASAM Criteria Implementation Guide, which is based on the NIATx model for improvement which has emerged during the last twenty years as a highly effective toolbox for implementation and improvement of EBPs. The Guide moves us toward a focused sequence of tested process tools for ASAM implementation (walk-through, flow chart, nominal group technique, data-driven PDSA cycles, etc.).
