      Rosay, André B.; TePas, Katherine H.; Wood, Darryl S.; Rivera, Marny; Myrstol, Brad A. (Justice Center, University of Alaska Anchorage, 2010-11-18)
      The Justice Center at the University of Alaska Anchorage partnered with the Council on Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault to conduct a statewide victimization survey. The Alaska Victimization Survey was modeled after the National Intimate Partner and Sexual Violence Surveillance System (NISVSS) survey, developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in collaboration with the National Institute of Justice and the Department of Defense. The NISVSS survey is designed to “generate accurate and reliable lifetime and 12-month incidence and prevalence estimates on intimate partner violence (physical aggression, psychological aggression, and sexual violence); sexual violence (unwanted sexual situations, abusive sexual contact, and completed or attempted sex without consent); and stalking” (CDC). This poster presents key results from the Alaska Victimization Survey and identifies how survey results are being used to impact policy and practice.

    • Promoting a Coordinated Multi-Site Evaluation for Community-Based Opioid Prevention Programs

      Hanson, Bridget; Barnett, Jodi (Center for Behavioral Health Research and Services, 2019)
      The effectiveness of substance use prevention efforts is often difficult to measure over short grant cycles, especially for emerging issues such as prescription opioid misuse where data is less available and evidence-based strategies are not well understood. Coordinating state and community level evaluation efforts adds further complexity. Since 2016, six communities in Alaska, through a single federal funding stream, have worked to prevent opioid misuse among youth and young adults using policy, system, and environmental strategies. The project is focused on three key intervening variables to reduce prescription opioid misuse.The Alaska Partnerships for Success Project is funded by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, Center for Mental Health Services (Grant #SP020783) through the State of Alaska, Division of Behavioral Health.
