Abstract

Effective orientation and training are fundamental to rite successful implementation of any intervention because they communicate the critical first impressions of the intervention and the skills needed to conduct it. When research-based HIV prevention interventions are translated into practice, issues arise that require adaptation and expansion of the basic functions of orientation and training. This article identifies some of these issues by drawing on the experience of researchers in the Replicating Effective Programs (REP) project. The purpose, structure, and instructional approach of the orientation and training for administrators, staff, and volunteers are described in depth for one project, with comparisons and additional examples from others. Based on these descriptions, critical issues for orientation and training for replication are presented. These include extending orientation and training to a broad audience within the adopting agency, allocating sufficient time to ensure understanding of the intervention, and planning for staff turnover.
