EVIDENCE-BASED INTERVENTIONS

Purpose: This document was prepared by CCCB’s Scientific Support and Clinical Translation Team (SSCT) to provide additional support and knowledge on evidence-based interventions for the NCCCP. This document was developed as part of the action plan review process, and attempts to capture a comprehensive list of EBIs, especially those related to action plan content. It should be noted that the development and finalization of this list is expected to be an iterative process, with continued addition of EBIs and other resources that may assist programmatic initiatives. Also note that some resources listed below (many are hyper-linked and can be clicked on) may have duplicate or similar recommendations due to cross-referencing.
