Winn, D. M., Newall, E., Coie, J. D., & Conduct Problems Prevention Research Group. (2007). Fast Track morphs into On Track: The dissemination of a conduct prevention program in Manchester, England. Child and Family Policy Review, 3(1), 7-10.
Abstract: This paper describes the way a randomized clinical trial of an evidence-based prevention program conducted at four sites in the United States came to be implemented with fidelity and success in Manchester, England. First, we describe the developmental model on which the program was based and describe the program components and initial outcomes. Next, we describe how the initial outcomes of this project led to the adoption and implementation of the program in Manchester. This is followed by a description of some initial results by an independent evaluation team, and finally we provide brief commentary on the key factors that seemed to contribute to this successful dissemination. Hopefully, this case study may serve as a guide to others interested in bringing prevention research into community practice.
