This chapter explains the concept of practice-based evidence (PBE), information that practitioners can share with researchers in the implementation of evidence-based programs that can be used in a variety of ways to adapt and tailor the program more effectively to particular constituents. It is argued that PBE should be incorporated in the fabric of scaled-up evidence-based programs and would help program staff adjust program delivery to be of better use to individual groups. The value of coalition building and prevention partnerships is explained, as well as participatory methods and collaborative inquiry. 2 figures and 42 references.
