Sept 2011 PA receives a one-year Strategic Prevention Framework – State Prevention Enhancement (SPE) grant requiring a Policy Consortium Nov 2011 1 st TAC Meeting Dec 2011 Capacity Building/Infrastructure Enhancement Plan submitted to CSAP Aug 2012 5-year Strategic Prevention Plan due
The capacity building plan for Pennsylvania includes specific steps in four areas: Data Collection: upgrade PBPS, create a dashboard for visualizing overlaid data sets Coordination of Services: utilize data sets from many sources in PBPS, create connections with primary care Training and TA: create online training for credentialing the workforce Evaluation: create milestones for 1) offering data to SCAs, 2) providing training on data-driven decisions, 3) evaluating outcomes of decisions
The Pennsylvania SPE Capacity Building/Infrastructure Enhancement Plan was approved by the States SAMHSA/CSAP State Project Officer on January 31, 2012. He said: The first of the four mini-plans comprising the Capacity Building Plan addresses Data Collection and Reporting. The States Data Collection and Reporting mini-plan presents a clear roadmap for advancing data-based decision making, integrating data from diverse sources, and building the States capacity to collect and use real time data. The second mini-plan, which focuses on the Coordination of Services, clearly describes the ongoing collaboration among multiple sectors and stakeholders, the key role played by the Drug and Alcohol Coalition as the SPE Policy Consortium, and the States information dissemination process. The third mini-plan, which addresses Training and Technical Assistance, presents a well thought-out plan for assessing training and TA needs in the State, curriculum development, and data support. The fourth mini-plan submitted by Pennsylvania covers Performance Management and Evaluation. Although future drafts of this mini-plan will require some reframing as a plan for enhancing the States current evaluation/performance management systems (as opposed to a plan for evaluation of the SPE grant itself), it already contains many of the elements of an effective plan for improving Pennsylvanias evaluation and performance management capabilities (e.g., the section of the mini-plan describing the process for improving infrastructure).

According to the Capacity Building Plan, IRETA and BDAP will conduct an online survey of the current prevention workforce regarding specific course content needed/desired. IRETA is currently drafting an online survey with approximately 10 questions IRETA will disseminate the survey to 1) PBPS end users, 2)BDAP Div of Prevention contact list, via the Commonwealth Prevention Alliance, 3) others TAC suggestions for dissemination?
According to the Capacity Building Plan, IRETA and BDAP will also survey existing online prevention courses...and determine which ones meet PCB requirements...[which] will be posted to IRETAs online education portal. IRETA will post information about becoming a CPS or other preventionist in PA on ireta.org IRETA will first post an online self-paced ethics class, which is one of the requirements for the CPS credential. TAC suggestions about web content and online courses?
The next deliverable is a 5-year strategic prevention plan for Pennsylvania: Corresponds with the Capacity Building/Infrastructure Enhancement Plan: The two plans should correspond with each other. Specifically, the gaps identified in the capacity building plan should be addressed in the SPE Strategic Plan. Organized into four mini plans: The capacity building plan is organized into four categories, as will be the SPE strategic plan: Data Collection, Analysis and Reporting Coordination of Services TA and Training Performance/Evaluation
Seeking TAC input particularly in the following areas as we begin to create the plan (see pages 13-14 of the RFA): Goals, objectives, and strategies for integrating a holistic approach to substance abuse prevention into primary health care settings – Input on how you see prevention fitting into primary care and what types of prevention services could occur in a primary care setting. Identify priority substance abuse prevention needs – Input on what the highest priority needs are (need data to support the priorities identified). Process and criteria for selecting evidence-based programs – Input on what criteria can be used to determine that a program is evidence-based (i.e. what would be the minimum scores a program on NREPP would have to have to be added to BDAPs Evidence-Based Program Listing). Key prevention strategies that will be implemented over the next 5 years – Input on what these key prevention strategies should be and why.
The 25 th Annual National Prevention Network Prevention Research Conference will be held September 19, 20 and 21 in Pittsburgh. The ninth annual Recovery Sports Link baseball game at PNC Park will be on September 19, held in conjunction with the conference. Dr. Michael Flaherty will be one of the keynote speakers, addressing the role of prevention in a ROSC. TAC can have input on conference topics
Ideas? Suggestions? Our next meeting right now is scheduled for the week after the Coalition meeting, during the month of April.
