Track: Evaluating ECR: What’s in it for me?

Several federal and state agencies worked collaboratively over a three-year period to systematically evaluate 52 recently completed ECR cases. The analysis of responses from 523 participants and 58 facilitators and mediators in the 52 cases is based on an ECR evaluation framework (logic model) also developed collaboratively by the participating agencies. ECR performance results and insights on factors that contribute to ECR success will be presented and reviewed by the panel, followed by an interactive discussion of the implications of the study findings for the ECR field.
