Statewide Knowledge Implementation Plan

Emerging need for evidence-based substance abuse treatment practices has led to the development of Iowa’s Statewide Knowledge Implementation Plan (SKIP) Work Group. This new SKIP Work Group will devote its efforts to creating a sustainable mechanism for examining and evaluating which evidence-based practices could be applicable for the state of Iowa. Representation on this 14-member working group includes public health, provider directors, clinical supervisors, counselors, community-based corrections, managed care, hospital-based programming, and research consultation from the Iowa Consortium. Rural and urban settings are represented as are all geographic regions of the state. Resources for examining the criteria for Evidence-Based Practices are included in the reports. This project was completed in 2004.
