Abstract

Evidence-based program repositories (EBPR) report intervention characteristics and how to implement the intervention. These EBPR are a dissemination strategy to address questions such as, “I have cancer, what programs can I join?” or “What evidence-based programs for weight loss are a good fit for my community?” However, these EBPR fall short of realizing their potential and are not seen as particularly interactive, robust, or relevant to stakeholders who may benefit from their content. We propose 2 solutions for existing EBPR to enhance dissemination of evidence-based information. Addressing this critical dissemination need is one strategy for health promotion.
