"The book Practical Implementation in Social Work Practice: A Guide to Engaging in Evidence-Based Practice provides social work practitioners and students with guidance on engaging in the process of evidence-based practice (EBP), with an emphasis on implementation of high quality interventions. The book begins with an overview of the process of EBP, and the relationship between EBP and implementation. In subsequent chapters, readers are provided with practical tips and frameworks to support identification of evidence-supported interventions and preparation for the implementation of selected interventions in practice. Later chapters examine more closely the assessment of intervention alignment with clients and service contexts, how to determine if an intervention must be adapted before implementation, and guides readers through the adaptation of interventions if needed. Fidelity strategies are then reviewed to support the ongoing implementation of interventions at a high level of quality. Examples are used throughout the book to provide the reader with concrete illustrations of the application of more abstract concepts and each chapter includes discussion questions to guide class discussions for instructors. The book ends with a chapter on some of the future trends and continuing challenges in EBP and implementation science in social work"--

Implementation

This book confronts the widespread impression that policy or program implementation should be easy, arguing instead that implementation, even under the best of circumstances, is exceedingly difficult. Using the Oakland Project as a case study, this book discusses each stage of the process of implementation, demonstrating that completion of what might seem to be a simple sequence of events will in fact depend on a complex chain of reciprocal interactions. Each part of the chain must be built with the others in view, so the separation of policy design from implementation is fatal. The first four chapters illustrate the movement from simplicity to complexity. Chapter 5 discusses the number of decision points throughout the process, giving an indication of the magnitude of the task. Chapter 6 examines why project targets may be set even if they are unlikely to be met, considering both the position of those who set targets -- top federal officials who wish large accomplishments from small resources in a short time -- and those who must implement them -- career bureaucrats and local participants characterized by high needs and low cohesion. The last chapter discusses the relationship between the evaluation of programs and the study of their implementation, arguing that tendencies to assimilate the two should be resisted.
