Dissemination and Implementation Toolkit

The Dissemination and Implementation Toolkit is a resource for anyone who is interested in implementing a change in their work. With this collection of resources, we aim to provide educational information on the implementation process and connect you with additional resources and information to help you be successful in the implementation of best practices for substance-focused prevention, treatment, and recovery practices.

Getting Started

After implementation, Sustaining a practice can be challenging. This section provides tips on how to be successful in the long-term.

'Change Talk' is Motivational GOLD

Most trainings on Motivational Interviewing (MI) convey the "concept" of "Change Talk" as essential to the practice and stop there. This interactive Learning Community Conversation will review the "types" of Change Talk and provide opportunities to practice identifying this truly essential part of the language of ambivalence; along with it's often vilified counterpart, Sustain Talk. A prior working knowledge of MI is helpful if you choose to join this conversation. This training was approved for two renewal hours (CASAC, CPP, CPS) and two initial hours (CPP, CPS) through New York State’s Office of Addiction Services and Supports (NYS OASAS). As an IC & RC member board, OASAS-accredited courses were granted reciprocal approval by the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs, Alcohol and Drug Counselor Committee.

‘You Got This’: Maintaining Recovery during the Holidays

  ‘You Got This’: Maintaining Recovery during the Holidays 12/19/2019 For many individuals in recovery from substance use disorders (SUDs), the holidays are filled with high-risk situations. This episode provides science-informed advice to assist individuals, as well as spouses/partners, family members, and friends, to prepare for holiday situations that may be recovery-aversive and includes: a brief review of the definitions of recovery, recovery benchmarks, and high-risk situations to establish a common language regarding recovery support; the Five G’s,  which are tips that can be used to manage recovery-averse situations; and a discussion of tools/activities that can be applied in real-life situations. Most importantly, the overall theme of this episode is to provide encouragement that, by doing some preparation, maintaining recovery during the holidays can be navigated and managed.

"Wipe Out and Still Going," Preventing Compassion Fatigue

Despite the demands of a profession in the health and behavioral health care disciplines, providers are dedicated to their craft and enjoy a deep satisfaction from helping others. But with the job are pressures and at times unanticipated factors that can increase susceptibility to exhaustion leading to compassion fatigue and other occupational hazards, referred to as “the cost of caring for others.” The adverse effects of compassion fatigue can decrease the provider’s emotional and physical well-being, influence the quality of care they provide for their clients, and have a profound effect on service delivery and person-centered care with communities served. This interactive webinar will help to identify often elusive work-related conditions that promote empathy strain, self-assessment tools and practical prevention strategies for self-care and means to resiliency and wellness for us, the people helping people. This training was approved for three renewal hours (CASAC, CPP, CPS) and three initial hours (CPP, CPS) through New York State’s Office of Addiction Services and Supports (NYS OASAS). As an IC & RC member board, OASAS accredited courses were granted reciprocal approval by the New Jersey Division of Consumer Affairs, Alcohol and Drug Counselor Committee. Many other states offered reciprocity.

Exploring

This section focuses on Exploring the implementation process, needs of the communities and clients, and selecting an evidence-based practice to implement.

Implementation Strategies Infographics

The Technology Transfer Centers: Dissemination and Implementation Working Group, composed of representatives across the ATTC, MHTTC, and PTTC, developed two infographics for the most common intensive technical assistance strategies used to help states, organizations, and front-line providers implement evidence-based services. The two strategies are: Learning Collaboratives External Facilitation These are two of many technical assistance strategies offered and deployed across the TTC Network. Additional infographics simply describing other strategies for consumers are in the planning stages. User-friendly infographics are expected to assist decision-makers in making more informed selections about the kinds of assistance or support they need.   Access the infographics by clicking on the Green "Download" button above and selecting between the two options.

Sustaining

After implementation, Sustaining a practice can be challenging. This section provides tips on how to be successful in the long-term.

[UMP Vietnam HIV ATTC] Survey: Online training needs of Methadone Maintenance Treatment clinics in southern Vietnam

Vietnam HIV - Addiction Technology Transfer Center - University of Medicine and Pharmacy at HCMC (VHATTC-UMP) has been focusing remarkably on online training and distant TA activities. This approach is expected to be the future of VHATTC-UMP’s activities with support fonmo smart and hi-tech devices. This approach both helps to save costs and spread knowledge quickly, reaching to areas and facilities with limitation to access face-to-face training and TA. To make full and appropriate use of this model before actual implementation, VHATTC-UMP conducted a survey exploring the needs of clinics and their medical staff for online training and TA, taking it as evidence-based orientation to conduct and expand this model. The survey results have been published in the MedPharmRes Journal (Journal of Medical Pharmaceutical Research) of the University of Medicine and Pharmacy at Ho Chi Minh City, the first English international electronic journal of medical research in Vietnam.
