Synthesizing the Evidence for System Supports

Melissa Van Dyke and Sandra Naoom (NIRN)

This document summarizes a recent request received by NIRN to review and synthesize evidence related to key system support components (e.g. program coordination, evaluation, community outreach and community leadership development) for one of North Carolina’s local Partnerships for Children. In addition, the Active Implementation Frameworks are discussed and crosswalks between system support terminology and common terms in academic and evaluation literature are offered.
