The best question to ask when implementing evidence-based programming is: What is the linkage between the identified problem and the program you want to implement? What evidence-based programs, practices, policies, or principles have addressed this type of problem successfully?
Darcy must be able to demonstrate:
- Sufficient research exists to support the program plan as a possible solution for the problem Darcy wants to address.
- The program is well established as being effective for this target population.
- Results have been published and they are widely accepted.
