Recent research on implementation science highlights the importance of understanding the practical strategies that support uptake of new practices and adoption of evidence-based practices (EBP) by clinicians. For example, placing reminders or prompts in the practice setting where the clinician can easily see them provides timely cues that reinforce use of the EBPs. [see Cullen & Adams, 2012; Leathers, 2016; Sholomskas et al., 2005]. With this in mind, the MPATTC worked with a Motivational Interviewing (MI) expert/researcher to create posters that serve as a reminder/prompt about four important tenets of MI and reinforce use of this EBP by clinicians. These posters can be downloaded in multiple formats directly from the MPATTC website and include a QR code that can be scanned to access additional MI resources, products, and training found within the ATTC Network. It is recommended to display these posters together, however they can be used individually as well. Please note: to maximize the impact of these products, display the 11x17 posters in a location most visible and accessible to clinicians.     To Download:  The MI Prompt/Reminder Posters were designed for display as 11x17 sized posters.

Hiring and Leading Staff in the Delivery of Evidence-Based Treatment In the behavioral health workforce setting, leadership plays a key role in the implementation of evidence-based practices (EBPs). It is critical that behavioral health agency administration supports using and sustaining EBPs in the clinical setting. This webinar will make recommendations for hiring and leading staff in the delivery of evidence-based treatment. First, the presenter will discuss best practices for hiring staff who may be more likely to deliver evidence-based care. Using a behavioral interviewing framework, the webinar will introduce a brief exercise that can be used during the interview process to identify applicants who may have an aptitude for reflective listening, which is a key ingredient in the delivery of EBPs. Second, the webinar will discuss elements of leadership that support effective implementation of EBPs. The presentation will show how to assess the degree to which a leader is perceived by staff as proactive, knowledgeable, supportive, and perseverant with regard to their implementation of EBPs. Identifying strong and weak leadership areas can help agencies retain staff, strengthen EBP implementation, and improve the overall quality of care. Presenter: Scott T. Walters, Ph.D., Regents Professor and Chair of Health Behavior and Health Systems, University of North Texas Health Science Center

The ATTC Network understands that words have power. A few ATTC products developed prior to 2017 may contain language that does not reflect the ATTCs’ current commitment to using affirming, person-first language. We appreciate your patience as we work to gradually update older materials. For more information about the importance of non-stigmatizing language, see “Destroying Addiction Stigma Once and For All: It’s Time” from the ATTC Network and “Changing Language to Change Care: Stigma and Substance Use Disorders” from the Providers Clinical Support System (PCSS).
