Adoption of Effective BSSR in Practice

Use Behavioral Health Evidence-Based Registers to disseminate information about new research on Behavioral Health Practices

This suggestion is a joint effort from three researchers working on NIH project Community Utilization of Evidence-Based Program Registers in Behavioral Healthcare Grant Number: 5R01DA042036. We are Stephen Magura, PI, Miranda Jade Lee Project Director, and Michael J Maranda, Research Associate. There are number of behavioral evidence-based registers whose job it is to evaluate the evidence in support of the effectiveness of behavioral health interventions. Some of these registers are operated or funded by the federal government. In addition to evaluating the evidence concerning the effectiveness of interventions they can also be used to disseminate information about new promising (i.e., those that have some evidence in support of their effectiveness) interventions as well as those that are clearly evidenced-based. They can post them prominently on their websites, send out electronic newsletters, and use social media (twitter, Facebook, etc.) to inform relevant parties. Researchers, evaluators, and program administrators can be encouraged to send reports or prepublication manuscripts to the registers. Federal research grants can require that a final report and all publications be sent to a designated register. Furthermore, NIH needs to establish clear guidelines as what constitutes evidence-based and what constitutes promising. Below is a list of register.
