Evidence-Based Programs and Cultural Competence

In 2003 a meeting was convened of leaders of various cultural, racial, and ethnic professional associations; representatives of family advocacy associations; and developers of evidence-based programs (EBPs).  This was an historic meeting to find common ground for using EBPs in culturally and racially diverse communities and for shaping EBPs to address issues directly related to diverse communities. This meeting provided an opportunity for mutual understanding and mutual gain as well as an opportunity to integrate EBP developer, practitioner and community paths. The overall meeting process was structured to systematically solicit information by using a modified Nominal Group Technique and the findings are summarized in this report.
