How Did CIE Identify the Evidence-Informed Approaches and Interventions on this Site?
In collaboration with Northwestern University’s Center for Prevention Implementation Methodology and evidence and dissemination subject matter experts (SMEs), CIE identified and cataloged evidence-informed approaches and interventions by:
Conducting a systematic literature review for studies that demonstrate the effectiveness of an intervention, include a clearly defined approach, prioritize linkage, retention or re-engagement components, and include statistically significant outcomes;
Conducting key informant interviews with Request for Information (RFI) respondents who submitted innovative interventions for considerations that have not yet been published in scientific literature;
Assessing registries, inventories, abstracts, and posters from HIV-related conferences to discover interventions;
Developing and applying a rubric to measure the strength of evidence for each intervention;
Developing and applying an impact scoring rubric to measure feasibility,
acceptability, appropriateness, relevance, reach, sustainability, and transferability of each intervention; and
Selecting high priority interventions from those ranking in the top 50th percentile based on strength of evidence and strength of impact.
