3. Tools for Selecting Evidence-Based Strategies

Strategy Selection: How to Guide Your Community in Selecting Evidence-Based Strategies

These tools were developed by Ohio’s Coaching and Mentoring Network (OCAM) to support coalitions as they navigate the strategy selection process. While the focus of these tools is the reduction of underage drinking and the reduction of prescription drug misuse/abuse among persons aged 12-25, they could easily be modified for other substances or priority populations. The materials are not intended to be a “cookbook” or a process to be followed to fidelity. Rather, the tools were designed for communities to use as a resource to support their process in a way that makes the most sense to them. For that reason, you will notice that several of the documents are editable – please feel free to customize them.
