Improving Access to Evidence-Based Care in Autism
Start Date: 3/27/2018Start Time: 9:00 AM
End Date: 3/27/2018End Time: 11:00 AM

Event Description
Autism research can lead to evidence-based practices, but often there are challenges that impede the availability of these practices in community programs. How do we break the cycle of limited transmission from basic scientific research to implementing these evidence-based practices in community settings to reach affected populations? Researchers working on treatments for autism have started incorporating community members – from primary care provider to educators – directly into their research in order to ensure that recommended treatments are used as widely as possible and are effective in the real-world setting. This talk will discuss methods for developing effective research-community partnerships that can translate into better care.

The A.J. Drexel Autism Institute's annual Autism & Public Health Lecture is a speaker series that brings top researchers to Philadelphia to talk about the latest in public health research on autism. Lectures are always open to the wider community and offer researchers the opportunity to engage with a general audience on the implications of their research.
