Evaluation of Prevention Programs
The IAPR includes five large evaluation projects:
• One evaluation is being conducted on two gatekeeper trainings for suicide prevention conducted in six communities working with juvenile justice and family welfare in Colorado.
• The second addresses occupational safety training and safety campaigns integrating occupational stress, organizational justice, organizational climate, communication, attitude change, leadership, safety performance, motivation, training, work-family conflict, social marketing, and conflict management.
• The third is testing a new approach to, and venue for, the packaging and marketing of an evidence-based intervention (community-based group exercise for fall prevention) among older adults who belong to faith-based congregations.
• The fourth seeks to comprehensively identify and disseminate controlled evaluations of suicide prevention programs, and use the identified studies to conduct two systematic reviews of suicide prevention strategies targeting the high-risk or general population.
• The fifth evaluation is a collaboration with agricultural communities to disseminate, implement, and diffuse evidence-based agriculture safety and health programs.
