Can I use an evidence-based program in a different setting than the original study?

Using an evidence-based program (EBP) in a setting other than the one intended is usually a yellow-light adaptation.

Once you’ve zeroed in on a possible program, refer to the Core Components and Adaptation Guidelines documents to learn more about whether the program can be adapted for your particular setting. These can be found under Programs, on the Adaptation Guidelines & Tools tab on the pages that describe each EBP.
