Effective implementation is a key element of any programme. If implementation is not done correctly, not only does the programme not work the way it was intended, but other unintended consequences can happen. So what are the critical elements of the successful implementation of an evidence-based programme? The purpose of this policy memo is to provide a short resource guide for child-serving organisations to support effective implementation of evidence-based practices. The document is based on a more detailed version of the implementation guide developed in 2016 for the European Platform for Investing in Children (EPIC).
