Abstract

A growing body of literature indicates that evidence-based behavioral health practices and programs are not being implemented into clinical settings effectively. As a result, many adolescents living with a behavioral health problem are not receiving the quality of services they need. This feasibility study addressed this science-to-service gap through the implementation of an evidence-based adolescent behavioral health screening, assessment, and brief intervention protocol in five distinct primary care settings. This case study documents the authors' experiences in utilizing Fixsen, Naoom, Blase, Friedman, and Wallace's (2005) implementation framework to guide their purveyor efforts, and outlines solutions to overcoming the challenges purveyors may face when implementing evidence-based programs into primary care.
