MHTTC Poster to be at Science of Dissemination & Implementation Conference
We are very honored to be accepted for a poster presentation at the 15th Annual Conference on the Science of Dissemination and Implementation in Health: (Re)Building Better Systems: Being Proactive, Nimble, and Responsive.
Our poster is titled: "Supporting implementation outcomes through online learning communities: Lessons learned from the Northwest Mental Health Technology Transfer Center" and our content will cover the following:
Models of implementation science highlight the role of workforce training in supporting the adoption of evidence-based practices (EBPs). A learning community is a promising workforce development model that promotes skill development through interpersonal interactions and shared learning. However, such community-focused learning models have been challenging to implement given the ongoing global pandemic. The Northwest Mental Health Technology Transfer Center (MHTTC) is part of a SAMHSA-funded network of 13 regional training and TA centers that promote EBP implementation. Since November 2020, this center has implemented 11 online learning communities focused on behavioral health topics such as provider well-being and crisis response. We examined select outcomes associated with these events.
