Hi Michael, Thanks for the question. In determining what would qualify for an evidence based program we looked at survey results on each of the program both during and post intervention, each program was to submit previous reports, and demonstrate the need. Given that last years programs we're also all previous grantees we already had years of reporting and data from the years we funded the development, implementation, and evaluations of their programs. We're currently in the process of determining what the requirements will be for the 2012 cycle. All previous requirements will remain however we may require a few more things given that the program has grown and there is a lot of interest from organizations/programs that we have not had previous relationships with. Our plan is to have the application for replication, along with requirements, posted on our website (in the Community Section) in early September. I'd be glad to discuss further if you have any additional questions, suggestions, or have a program in mind for replication. Thanks again, Jordan
In 2010 LIVESTRONG’s Community Program grant process evolved into the Community Impact Project (CIP). This shift resulted in providing the largest support they had ever offered through their Community Program in one calendar year. The CIP is a novel approach encouraging community organizations, hospitals, and cancer centers to implement evidence-based survivorship programs in a way that engages community members and organizations through a national voting process.
In support of National Survivorship Day, the June cyber-seminar will highlight this innovative model that LIVESTRONG developed to scale-up one of their 2010 Community Impact Project survivorship programs, SuperSibs! This seminar will provide an overview of the CIP, describe the challenges and benefits SuperSibs! encountered as they scaled-up their program, and discuss two of the selected sites adapting and implementing SuperSibs! in their communities through the CIP.
Join us as we explore an exciting new model for program dissemination!
At the end of the cyber-seminar, participants will be able to:
- Describe the unique dissemination approach of the LIVESTRONG Community Impact Project and their partnership with the SuperSibs! program.
- Discuss the challenges and facilitators that helped organizations, like SuperSibs! scale-up their programs and the benefits of this expansion.
- Understand how local organizations adapted, implemented, and evaluated this program, and the impact it had on their communities.
