Certain factors increase the likelihood that an organization will be successful in EBP implementation. Assessing your organization’s knowledge of evidence-based programming, the degree to which organizational stakeholders support a potential program, and the availability of resources can help you determine if your organization is ready to implement an EBP.
As you read through the Toolkit, you will come across Readiness Questions that will help you assess these factors. As you answer “yes” or “no” to each question, you will be provided with feedback and suggested actions to help further your readiness.
There is no objective point at which all organizations are ready to implement EBPs, thus there is no way to precisely measure an organization’s readiness. However, the Readiness Questions can help you estimate your organization’s readiness.
