The “So What Outcome” Factor: A Key Strategy for Speeding the Translation of Evidence-Based Interventions Into Practice


This presentation will describe the state of translating research and evidence-based interventions into real world clinical settings to improve outcomes. Barriers and facilitators will be discussed. The “so what” outcome as a critical factor in speeding the translation of evidence based interventions into clinical settings will be highlighted. The presentation also will describe two successful programs of research as examples of success in scaling evidence-based interventions into practice. The Advancing Research and Clinical practice through close Collaboration (ARCC) Model will be emphasized as a successful framework for the rapid translation of evidence into practice to improve outcomes.
