Abstract

Although there have been efforts to advance evidenced-based practices into community-based organizations the limited successes of dissemination and poor implementation of efficacious treatments within these organizations are beginning to be documented. This article builds on the knowledge gained from organizational research and those internal structures (e.g., culture and climate), which possibly impede or enhance evidenced-based practice implementation within community-based organizations. While there are many evidenced-based practices available to human services organizations, there seems to be a gap between research and the implementation of these clinical practices. Recommendations are provided to better enable community-based organizations to integrate evidenced-based practice into its existing service structures.
