Designing an intervention based upon research literature is the first step towards improvement process. Rarely does an intervention work the way we intend at this point. Thus, revision to increase the effectiveness of the intervention is critical. Based in the theory of continuous quality improvement and using a combination of consultative, evaluative, and educational review processes, this poster will report on the procedures used and outcome of such a review process. Attention to differences between the current context and the context of the research base and literature will be articulated to further clarify the critical nature of evaluation in the improvement of processes and interventions included in grant-funded research. An example using the intervention sequence being developed across two recent HBCU-UP BPR grants awarded this group of researchers will be included.
