Database Description

Click on the resource name for a brief description, its level of evidence (if applicable), and relevant published evaluation research studies or click on the URL arrow for a direct link to the organization’s website. To filter by multiple criteria, hold the control key down while selecting filter terms and click apply.

Level of Program Evaluation

All of the prevention programs listed in this database have been systematically reviewed to evaluate the current level of scientific evidence demonstrating their effectiveness, based on guidelines from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ National Guidelines Clearinghouse. For this scale, level 1 is the strongest level of scientific evidence validating a program’s effectiveness while level 4 is the weakest.

Levels of Evidence

Evidence obtained from at least one:

1

Single randomized controlled trial or a meta-analysis of randomized controlled trials.

2A

Well-designed controlled study without randomization.

2B

Well-designed quasi-experimental study (i.e., no randomization and use of existing groups).

3

Well-designed non-experimental descriptive study (e.g., correlation or case-control study).

4

Accepted best practices, expert committee reports, opinions or clinical experience of respected authorities.
