First Responders and Community Partners Overdose Prevention Project Evaluation

Grants and Contracts Details


The University of Kentucky College of Medicine, Department of Behavioral Science, in conjunction with the UK Center on Drug and Alcohol Research, will be responsible for conducting the evaluation for the Center on Substance Abuse Prevention (CSAP) funded project with the Lexington-Fayette Urban County Government (LFCUG). The evaluation approach for this grant is conceptualized as a mixed methods process evaluation and outcome study incorporating a pre/posttest design with GPRA baseline data on the training curriculum, at the end of the training event, and 30-day follow-up to the training. This evaluation will comply with GPRA that includes, but is not limited to, collecting baseline and follow-up data using the GPRA Performance Measures. The process evaluation will focus on assessing the development and implementation of the proposed first responder training curriculum using semi-structured openended interviews. Reports will be prepared for LFUCG for regular and on-going Continuous Quality Improvement meetings to measure and address issues related to implementation and ongoing challenges. In addition, an annual report including both process and local level outcome evaluation data will be prepared.
